The 80,000 sq m park is inspired by Polish modernist design 

After winning the architectural design competition for the Pomeranian Science and Technology Park in Gdynia, Poland, Warsaw-based AEC Krymow & Partners have completed the expansion of the park, which is now the largest of its kind in the country at over 80,000 sq m.

During the design process of the buildings, the architects were inspired by the Polish modernist architecture of Gdynia of the 1920s and 30s. The rounded parts of the façade, in particular, recall the historic architecture of Gdynia.

Inside the ultra-modern building complex, meanwhile, there are offices, laboratories, workshops, conference spaces, and on the ground floor there is space for dining, shopping and other commercial services.

Five blocks, which accommodate offices, are merged through communication lines of stairwells and elevators, while the facades are entirely made of glass.

The double-skinned facade system was custom-developed to give the interior a high level of sound and energy-saving thermal insulation. Both heat exchangers and heat recovery systems are used in the building’s design to ensure that neither heat nor energy is wasted.

AEC Krymow & Partners were also responsible for the design of the interiors, which are shaped by the structural design of the exterior: concrete walls have no plaster and the rooms have no suspended ceilings. The main materials used are aluminium, glass, concrete and steel, with wood used to soften the raw and industrial appearance.
