APA | Office Buildings
The new building will act as the link between the existing office blocks, together with which it will form a stately main office and will become the dominant element of the composition of the entire development. The building’s design was inspired by the Investor’s business, namely the production of window systems and glazing. Glazed façades of the straight-line form of the building are shaded by vertical louvres of perforated aluminium sheet.
The office building is designed to stand on the premises of the Oknoplast production facility in Ochmanów (Niepołomice municipality) near Kraków, between two existing office buildings on the side of the provincial road. The design of the registered offices of Oknoplast was selected during a competition organised by the Investor.
The office building was designed as a monolithic reinforced concrete construction of column and slab structure, which allows the free arrangement of the office space, while the heating and ventilation are based on a heat pump and an efficient recuperation system. The building façades are designed from prefabricated glass fibre reinforced concrete (GRC) slabs. Our design of the Bronowicka Boat office building won a competition organised by the developer.
The office building is situated on Kraków’s ul. Bronowicka and is situated in a very visible location next to the flyover over ul. Armii Krajowej and opposite the Church of St John of Kanti. The compact form of the building is inspired by marine themes. The building consists of three above-ground storeys and an underground car park.
Structural elements of the building are designed of reinforced concrete, monolithic, in a column/slab arrangement. The whole is covered by a flat roof. The necessary traffic circulation system for the facility has been designed around it, subordinated to the facility’s function and allowing the disabled to move freely around its grounds.
The office block’s shape is that of connected and staggered cuboid containers. The designed office building comprises three storeys, the lowest of which, housing the warehouse and repair shop, is dug into the ground on the north side and is accessible from a small truck apron on the south. The middle storey houses only the office function, while the top one is for office and conference purposes, with additional access to the sports pitch on the roof of the lower storey.
A steel-framed storage warehouse was designed adjacent to the office building. It is from here that of all Intersport sports goods are delivered to the company’s shops in Poland. Innovative technology for the automatic storage, warehousing, and distribution of goods was designed in cooperation with Miebach Logistik, and cofinanced from EU funds.
The most clearly seen, prestigious section of the development is the office building whose form combines contemporary architectural style with the classical principles of tripartite division of the façade. The office building was designed as a column and slab structure in traditional technology.
Warehouse and office building design for Intersport Polska SA. The development is located in Cholerzyn close to Balice Airport and in the Liszki Community near Kraków. It lies next to the Kraków ring road with easy access to the A4 motorway, close to Wola Justowska – the prestigious residential district of Kraków, and within a vibrantly developing industrial and logistics zone.
Four above-ground storeys are designed as a column and slab frame structure. Monolithic reinforced concrete columns are laid out in a modular grid, allowing the office space to be freely fitted out. The building solutions reflect the planned split into two separate office buildings.
Structures of precast elements of glass fibre reinforced concrete are designed in front of glass elevations. On the first wing of the building, the structure has a latticework layout representing an engineering, mathematical solution. In contrast, the structure on the facade of the second wing is inspired by microscopic images of cellular structures. These two inspirations reflect the business of the Investor, namely the distribution of all kinds of medical hardware.
The class A office blocks of our design are to be located right next to the Krakow Airport in Balice. The compact form of the building stems from the assumed office function. The two basic shapes are designed on a rectangular projection with rounded corners, and connected by a glazed three-storey lobby forming the symmetry axis of the complex. One wing will be used as the office of Consultronix, the other will be let to tenants.
