Daniel Libeskind returned to his native country to create this predominately residential skyscraper in central Warsaw in association with Polish architects Artchitecture.
High-rise residential living is new to Warsaw; this 54-floor tower is expected to provide a model from which a new skyline will emerge. To preserve precious daylight amid a dense and historic urban fabric, the team meticulous sculpted the buildings’ form with the arc of the sun path, allowing for maximum daylight to reach neighboring buildings.
The wing-shaped façade counters the Communist-era Palace of Culture situated directly across. Zlota represents a new Warsaw with great aspirations.
The building opened to the public in March 2017.
