Eco Warsaw Tower borders two totally different city spaces, therefore it’s two facades are totally different.

The northern facade, which faces a noisy street, has been designed as a glass acoustic barrier that provides bright interiors with a beautiful view of the Warsaw landscape. Transparent lifts have been designed to allow for celebrating beautiful, dynamic views. The balconies with glazed acoustic walls contribute to the quality of life in the residential units. The ground floor has been designed as a two-storey commercial space that creates a vibrant shop frontage. The third level, which is on the same level as the neighbouring bridge it faces, is an open space office. All floors above are luxury residential units.

The southern facade faces a quiet, sunny, green courtyard. It has been designed with natural materials such as wood. It’s green walls and balconies have been equiped with a hydro system. They create a unique space for it’s residents. The garden on the roof of the second floor contributes to the comfort of the people working in the third-floor office space.

On top of the building there is another garden designed as a private space for luxury apartments. This garden has been covered with a solar panel system which produces energy and provides shade in this space, from which you can celebrate the city skyline.
