Widok Towers – designed to be the most leading-edge building in Poland
Form and function are both equally important in modern architecture, and the use of material is far more appreciated than unnecessary frills – the beauty of enhancing the actual material rather than covering it with design details. Widok Towers is a beautiful example of a building not compromising on either form or function, and the actual construction itself is the ornament for the building.
Would you like a view towards the future? The building is created for tenants who’d like to be on the forefront. The architecture has considered all aspects for unlimited development for tenants and their future. Widok Towers is the center piece of Warsaw, from here you can enter anywhere in the city. You’re nearby to basically everything so your travel options are unlimited. To have an office in the tower, you’ll not only be close-by to anything you’d like – you’ll also always be considered to be in the center as Widok Towers mantles the role as the city core.
The 28-storey office building describes as a “building of comfort” and offers a balanced working environment. The green exterior in the common spaces gives a tranquil office space in the city’s center of attention. Besides office spaces, the building also offers 3 levels of retail space and a beautiful lobby filled with natural light thanks to the 15 meters of glass ceiling height. Widok Towers reflects on the characteristics of Warsaw – it thrives on creativity, energy and diversity.
The prominent WICONA unitized façade is made by a solid aluminium system incorporated with a new smart technology system of sealing individual elements.
“There are two types of unitized façade solutions, one is the base type façade and the other is called Masstab. The base type façade has two kinds of units arranged alternately: units with a deep external glazing profiles in which a narrow glass screen is attached, and units with much less deep glazing profiles. The units with deep glazing profiles has narrow ventilation flaps hidden behind these glass screens. The façade solution must compensate quite large deflections of the slabs of the building,” says Hubert Wisniewski, Commercial Director at WICONA.
