About Warsaw Unit

Warsaw Unit’s uniqueness lies in its architecture, which refers to the modernist heritage enriched with innovative solutions. The podium of the building is covered by kinetic facade known as the “Dragon Skin”, made of thousands of moving plates. It will visibly react to every puff of wind, forming on its surface unique images modeled by forces of nature.

The ground floor of the skyscraper hosts commercial spaces and food amenities, available from the street level. The building will also provide a multi-storey garage for over 450 cars as well as infrastructure for cyclists, including parking lot for bicycles, locker rooms and showers.

Warsaw Unit is equipped with innovative technology solutions which, in the event that the government announces a state of epidemic threat, will enable building management to immediately switch to the pandemic mode. This includes innovative HVAC systems using only fresh air, disinfecting UV lamps in elevators and in air conditioning systems, contactless communication via virtual reception, and a special smartphone application with so-called pandemic mode.
