Original and innovative nature, simple, restrained and elegant architectural form which achieved a balance of simplicity refer to the environment of flood plain forest of the Vistula River and the historical context of the area. The main part of the venue is an arrangement of two pavilions connected in a system of ramps, stairs, plazas and terraces which introduces users to flood plain forest park. It is a two-storey building, set on stilts, elevated above the level of the beach, which serves as a connection between the street  level and the beach level. at the “-1” level removable showers are located, along with changing rooms, both of which operate seasonally. Restrooms are in the south pavilion at “0” level and include a women’s toilet, a men’s toilet, a special needs toilet (disabled toilet), child’s room and a beach equipment rental. The café is located in the north pavilion.

Pavilion has a reinforced concrete construction except designed lifted steel construction in case of high flood water which usually happens on Vistula river on Spring.
