Building D of the Nowy Rynek project in Poznań, which is the fourth and fifth stage of the office, commercial, service and residential complex, has been put into use. We invite you to see photos by Przemek Turlej on the project website: Nowy Rynek, building D.
Brooklyn, Detroit…? No, it’s our Katowice. .KTW towers placed in a historical context from the perspective of the city’s longest street.
Our architecture as a sign of the new times, but respecting the past and very consciously growing into the fabric of the city. Just as Szymon Król illustrated it in this photo.
The Nobu Hotel designed by us is among the nominees in the 7th edition of the President’s Architectural Award of the Capital City of Warsaw in the “Commercial Architecture” category!
The winners in 6 categories and the winners of special prizes will be selected by the Honorable Jury on May 25. At the same time, an audience plebiscite continues until May 21, in which selected projects compete for the Residents’ Award. Therefore, we warmly invite you to vote – select the best building, public space or architectural event of the last year in your opinion! The plebiscite is available at: http://www.um.warszawa.pl/nagrodaarchitektoniczna/.
Architectural Award of the President of the Capital City of Warsaw is an important competition that awards the best private and public investments, exhibitions and books on architecture. We are very pleased that Hotel Nobu Warsaw was among the 18 nominees and we congratulate the other contestants.
We present the latest photo of the Gdańsk Wave office building, taken by Juliusz Sokołowski. Mathematical repetitions of the alternating glass and steel modules of the façade constitute a counterpoint to the glass blocks of the new office district that has been developing for years.
We also invite you to our Facebook profile [https://www.facebook.com/MedusaGroup/], where we open our photo archive to you and in the weekend series we present our projects captured by great Polish photographers! Seen through their eyes, they create an original and diverse collection of frames of our architecture, accumulated over the years.
Care for the environment and the highest ecological standards of the buildings we create are extremely important to us, so we are pleased to inform you that the Nobu Hotel Warsaw (newly built part) designed by us received 74 points in the LEED certification in the category of hotels. We have thus reached the Gold level. This is the highest result among hotels in Poland!
This means that Nobu Warsaw is an example of the highest standards of ecological and sustainable activity. The green wall and plants on Nobu terraces act as an anti-pollution filter and counter the heat island effect. In the finish, we proposed materials with a low or no content of harmful volatile organic compounds, and the air handling units received the most modern class F7 filters, improving air quality. Comfort and lighting control systems have been integrated in the central control system, enabling optimization of energy consumption and thus contributing to increasing the energy efficiency of the facility and reducing its carbon footprint.
What distinguishes Nobu from other certified hotels? It received as much as 13 points. In the Indoor Environmental Quality category, which means that it is a place conducive to the productivity, health and well-being of both employees and hotel guests.
In addition, the area where the building was erected has undergone revitalization (including remediation of the land after the dismantled gas station) and thanks to the greenery, the environmental value of the plot has increased significantly.
