Prosta Tower Office Building

APA Kuryłowicz&Associates as Architects

This unusual high-rise will stand against the windowless facade of its even higher, 120-metre neighbour. The neighbour’s name is Łucka City – the biggest and perhaps the least appreciated apartment building in Warsaw. The new house shall resemble an oversized cabinet, finished with wood panelling on the sides, glazed with an undulating curtain wall shielding the apartments from the sunlight and the traffic noise.


The second version of the investment, redesigned into an office tower, features a concrete exo skeleton that serves a double function of structural support and heating prevention.

Prosta Tower

Hunter Douglas Architectural as Manufacturers

Situated in the Warsaw city centre, the Prosta Tower features a very striking concrete and glass facade complete with a superb architectural concrete finish. With the help of a comprehensive formwork and scaffolding solution designed to match the high requirements, the construction team required only 11 months for the structural work. The downtown area of the Polish capital of Warsaw has a new architectural highlight. It´s not the 70 m height and shape that makes the Prosta Tower unique – it is the front of the building consisting of glass and a reinforced concrete structure comprising individual diamond-shaped sections in a perfect architectural concrete finish that characterizes the appearance of the office block. The delicate, forward and reverse-inclined concrete facade has been installed in the form of a net over the external glazing – in addition, it serves as a structural component.
