Facts

  • The simplicity and monumentalism of the main side and the entrance contrasts with asymmetry of the atrium.
  • The sixth story above the main entrance houses a four-story winter garden with views over Pola Mokotowskie park.
  • The double-skin glass façade covering the front side fulfills both environmental and acoustical regulations, and will serve as a model for the all-glass Polskie Linie Lotnicze LOT building.
  • A monumental stone entrance and the upper glass façade topped by aluminum cornice give the front side of Focus Filtrowa a classic structural division.
  • Despite its inconspicuous height "the cube" is a huge scale development with gross floor area as large as Warsaw's Old Town. It can accommodate as many workers as there are Old Town inhabitants.
  • Focus's architectural design stems from a geometrically disciplined cube, a form traditionally considered as the most economical and functional, masterly transformed and enriched by the architects.
  • Features four different elevation shapes, from a monumental front side, through multi-layered, glittering west façade and decorative east one to expressionist rear side.
  • Focus is divided into four separate parts served by each one's elevators, but with common undergroud parking space and mechanical systems.
  • Focus Filtrowa was voted Best Building in Warsaw 2000-2001 in the Life In Architecture competition organised by Architektura-Murator magazine.
