The location at the edge of Gdynia Śródmieście and the new, developing part of this city guarantees a comfortable place to live where the spirit of Gdynia, a seaside and port city, is clearly perceptible. Within a short walk there are cafes, restaurants, a hospital, public transport, as well as a yacht marina and beach.
The complex has 220 condominiums and apartments with a total usable area of about 13,500 square meters, as well as service premises and multi-station underground garages. Apartments on the upper floors will have large balconies and terraces, as well as an interesting view of the Gulf of Gdansk extending from behind the high, perfectly illuminated interiors of the windows.
The shape of the lower part of the complex is also interesting. On the part of the roof (above the entrance hall), a green common part will be created - for exclusive use by the residents. The architecture fits into Gdynia's modernist traditions. An interesting detail of the highest, eighteen-story part retracts in the façade, which sculpts the sprawling body of the building.
Buildings with reinforced concrete structure. The main vertical structures are monolithic walls and pillars, stability is ensured by a part of reinforced concrete walls descending to the foundations and monolithic cage-elevator shafts located in each part of the building. In the garage level in the garage halls, there is a panel-to-column construction system. Under the above-ground parts in the garage part there is a one-story mixed wall-beam and column system, and on the upper floors a wall-beam system. The building has reinforced concrete floors like filigree and monolithic reinforced concrete ceilings. The building will be constructed on a slab foundation.
Highly complicated geometry of buildings was the biggest challenge for our team. We decided to connect a few means of design to make our project complete and easy to read.
What made the project successful
Using BIM technology with Tekla Structures helps our team to understand the geometry and find the best method to model the reinforcing bars in elements.
