Lighthouse Port Praski by APA Wojciechowski

The investment area is located in the Praga Polnoc, at the border of two separate urban fabrics – dense, historical, continuous street development of Old Praga and comb-like arrangement of residential tower blocks along Vistula River. The Monument of Kosciuszkowcow is adjacent to the south of the project site.

The main idea of the project is to create a dominant on the "gateway" to the Port Praski. The proposed building is to become a landmark of the entire investment. It will act as a lantern, inviting to enter the Port Praski and will become characteristic element on the map.

The site is located outside of the historic Praga building quarters system.

When designing the architecture, contemporary forms of expression in combination with traditional materials (i.e. clinker, sandstone), have been emphasized in modern proportions.

Considerable attention was paid to the consistent continuation of the idea of division into plateau blocks, the tower and the building in the "L" shape.

Division of the volume into two parts - the tower and the building in the ‘L’ shape – resulting in a cut inbetween, creates two façades and allows for views of the Vistula River, city centre, National Stadium, Swietokrzyski Bridge and the Old Town.

These facades are majorly glazed to enable spectacular views from the most prestigious apartments.

The tower has a spacious corner balconies overlooking the most attractive views.
