Forest Campus: A Pinnacle of Polish Architecture
In the vibrant heart of Warsaw, a shining testament to architectural excellence and eco-friendliness stands tall. Forest Campus, unveiled in 2022, has rapidly emerged as a beacon of aesthetic and technical triumph in the realm of Polish architecture. Its verdant courtyard, a towering tripartite structure reaching 120 meters, and an expansive 80,000 square meters of innovative spaces, including flexible layouts, co-working zones, and enticing retail and dining areas, have beckoned over 20 esteemed companies to call this visionary complex their home.
The façade of Forest Campus, adorned with bronze-hued vertical slats reminiscent of tree bark, seamlessly blends with the surrounding environment. Inside, the natural color palette pays homage to the beauty of flora. This nature-inspired design was conceived by the visionary Polish architects at HRA. But their vision extended beyond aesthetics; they aimed to minimize the carbon footprint and elevate energy efficiency. To realize these lofty goals, they turned to Saint-Gobain, integrating over twenty of our cutting-edge solutions. Among them are COOL-LITE® XTREME 70/33 solar control glass and COOL-LITE® SKN 176 highly transparent glass, complemented by Isover stone wool panels, Rigips® plasterboard, and Ecophon® acoustic ceilings.
