During the design process of the buildings, the architects were inspired by polish modernist architecture of Gdynia of the 1920s and 30s.

The rounded parts of the facade are especially associated with the historic architecture of Gdynia.

Five blocks, accommodating offices, are merged through communication lines of stairwells and elevators, whilst the facades is entirely made of glass.

The implemented double-skinned facade system was custom developed to give the interior a high level of sound and energy-saving thermal insulation.

The interior design project is also a result of AEC Krymow & Partners office’s work. The interiors are designed in such a way so that there is no further need for the construction to be built over.

The structural design itself creates the arrangement of inside. Concrete walls have no plaster and rooms have no suspended ceilings.

The main materials used in the interior is aluminum, glass, concrete and steel. This raw and industrial arrangement was softened by the use of wood.

The architecture of this building is energy efficient as it uses heat exchangers and heat recovery systems, so neither heat nor energy are wasted.
