Short information about architectural firm(s) : JEMS Architects was founded in 1988. The team though, had been working together since the early 80’s. Starting up as an independent practice at a time of democratic change in Poland, JEMS joined the push for the restoration of a Polish architectural culture.
Brief information about the project from an architectural point of view: The architects adopted the idea of a complex consisting of two independent buildings. In order to provide convenience and security to its users the area of the complex has been divided into two sections: a public area and an area secured with an access control system. The traffic layout in the complex is clear and simple. The paths leading to the main entrances and the canteen are interwoven with enclosures and courtyards. The internal courtyards open to the green public areas which neighbour the facility from the east. There has also been an external courtyard designed, which will be the focal point of the whole office complex. The geometry of the buildings and their relatively low height made it possible to create a modern and yet small development. The facades of both buildings create a set of visually ordered stripes consisting of stone and glazed elements. The facade cladding has been designed in the form of overlapping stone slabs.
