Echo Investment moves into education

Residential
Echo Investment has presented its concept for a primary school for 300 pupils in Warsaw’s Służewiec district.

The design is by WWAA. The building on ul. Konstruktorska will have two storeys and twelve classrooms but has been designed so that it can easily accommodate a future extension.

School buildings in our city are hidden, fenced off and play no part in the everyday life of the city. Therefore, one of the most important criteria for the school we designed to be built on ul. Konstruktorska was not just to fulfil its educational purpose but also to be an important focal point for the local community. We have designed an open entrance square that can double up as a neighbourhood centre. Directly from the square, there is access to a public library as well as sports rooms through the main entrance. The entrance hall, which will have a canteen open outside school working hours, will serve as a place to hold debates or meetings for the local community.
Natalia Paszkowska of WWAA.

Echo Investment has offered to build the school at its own expense in an investment of around PLN 20 mln and is ready to start work this year. The building could be ready for the beginning of the 2023/2024 school year.
