Second life for Rotunda

Eurobuild CEE
POLAND PKO Bank Polski has opened the reconstructed Rotunda building, one of Warsaw’s most distinctive buildings. The construction work began in 2017.

“We realise how many people have an emotional attachment to this place, which could be seen during the public consultations when we started the renovation. As a result the concept for the new PKO Rotunda was drawn up and now it is not only a branch of our bank but also a friendly, mixed use space that is open to everyone,” comments Zbigniew Jagiełło, the CEO of PKO Bank Polski. The bank undertook to rebuild Rotunda due to the dilapidated stated of the building. The new design was chosen in an international competition called ‘Changing the face, Rotunda Warsaw 2013’, which was won by the Gowin & Siuta studio from Kraków and it is based on the 1966 concept design by Jerzy Jakubowicz.

General contractor NDI started work on the project in January 2017 and the foundation stone was laid in September 2017.

The transparent glass façade has been restored, but the building is now properly insulated. The characteristic shape of the serrated roof has been kept, but many of the metal structural elements have gone. The building is also certified under BREEAM and LEED. The first floor has been turned into a meeting space with a café, coworking space and an event area. The plaque commemorating the 49 people who died in a gas explosion on the site in February 1979 remains in place.
