This is a proposed 13-storey office and retail building with 31,000m2 of space in Lódz.
The project was commissioned by Invest Company and is due to start on site this summer, with completion set for 2020.
The project is located in the centre of Lódz across the street from the newly developed railway station “Fabryczna”. The development is close to the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and Lodzki Dom Kultury, the building is inspired by the city’s industrial textile heritage.
MVRDV are working with co-architects Piotr Bilinski Architects, WSP for all technical advisory work, Essox façade consultants, Gress for real estate services.
The courtyard and roof garden are designed by Lola Landscape Architects from the Netherlands.
The 55m high mixed-use building includes 27,000m2 of offices and 4,000m2 of retail on the ground floor. The round tower emerges from within the round-cornered four-storey plinth.
MVRDV’s design proportions aim to relate to the mansions of the industrialists, surrounding a new public court. It provides more density and urbanity.
The glazed-brick façade’s colour scheme blends from red to metallic grey.
The building has a distinct envelope given the strict instructions for a, respecting the outline of the plot and at the same time, allowing for a tower height of up to 55 metres. The plinth is a band of retail spaces on the ground floor with offices above and a depth that allows for maximum daylight into all floors.
The Fabryczna offices are due to connect to the Central station via a future underground tunnel.
This is the second building by Holland’s MVRDV in Poland, following Baltyk Tower, Poznań completed in 2017. Construction is due to start this Summer with completion in 2020.
