Baltyk Tower in Poznan, Poland, by MVRDV
June 19, 2012

MVRDV Baltyk Tower PoznanInvestment corporation Sophia Sp. z.o.o and MVRDV present the Baltyk Tower, to be realised in the Polish city of Poznan. The office tower with a total surface of 25.000 m2 will be located at Rondo Kaponiera at the Eastern entrance to the historic city and will feature retail and a panorama restaurant with a proposed one room hotel. Completion is scheduled for 2014.
The tower’s volume follows the maximal volume and height restriction of the site. This leads to a shape resulting in a totally different contour when approached from different sides. Towards the south a slope of cascading patios will offer outside spaces to the users of the building. The façade is envisioned floor-to-ceiling glass with vertical louvers of glass fibre concrete softening the impact of the sun without losing the vista over the city and zoo.
Baltyk Tower is the first building by MVRDV in Poland. Sophia Sp. z o.o is a joint venture of Garvest and Vox Group. Buro Happold is structural engineer, MEP and sustainability advisor for the envisioned BREEAM “Very Good” rating. Co-architect is Ultra Architects, a local office from Poznan.
