Innovative design sculpted by path of sun 

Having gone through the destruction by the Nazis and oppression under the Soviets, this building represents a new direction for Poland, east and west. It is a response to the destruction of Warsaw and post war Russian reconstruction. The building offers a new light with its façade, its form and shape. Eager not to be another corporate building, it is a building that embraces the aspirations of Warsaw and is mindful of its economic circumstances. The eastern face of the building is sculpted by the path of the sun to provide required day light to surrounding buildings. The building aims to address a major shift in major cities around the world, where residential buildings will emerge as the most striking designs.
