KTW

Building

Our Vision

  • ”Less is more”

    - Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

    .KTW combines simplicity, expressiveness and ethos

    In many aspects, .KTW office complex represents everything that is best in  Katowice and in the entire metropolitan area. Meeting all the requirements that need to be met by office buildings of the highest class, it will become one of the most interesting destinations outside Warsaw.

  • Transformation

    .KTW is a part of the unique process of modernization of the inner-city area

    Similarly to the Ruhr region as a result of the implementation of the ambitious revitalization policy at the premises of the former Coal Mine in Katowice, the Culture Zone - a synergy of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra (PNRSO), the International Convention Centre (ICC) and the new seat of the Silesian Museum (SM), was created in the centre of this metropolitan area with a population of 2 million. .KTW enriches the Culture Zone with energy and vitality adequate for business of 21st century.

  • Prestige

    A great neighbourhood ensures the highest business culture

    Location next to the legendary venue known as ’Spodek’ and the Culture Zone, will enhance a unique offer of .KTW in the scope of commercial space thanks to both the quality of the project and its surroundings. In 2015 Katowice obtained the title of the UNESCO Creative City – the City of Music. The access to high culture provided by the PNRSO, exhibitions in the SM and the offer of the ICC enrich everyday business activity at .KTW.

  • Functionality

    Every detail of .KTW was designed with future users’ needs in mind

    The Upper Silesian identity, in which usefulness and practicality are appreciated more than insignificant decorations, laid the foundations for the development of modern architecture in Katowice in the Interwar period. Searching for the most functional solutions was also one of the fundamental principles to design process of .KTW. Drawing inspiration from the best solutions, thanks to its optimal form, the office complex will meet the expectations of companies operating in the modern business services, IT and central financial sectors.

  • Architecture

    ”Simplicity in form, courage in size”

    – Medusa Group

    Katowice and the metropolitan area differ from the typical locations of skyscrapers, such as London, New York or Dubai. This Polish city does not have a long history. It was built based on heavy industry and hard work. Unlike Krakow and Wroclaw, Katowice does not have a great historical heritage; it has always had a modern character. For us, Silesia is a symbol of work, scrupulousness, honesty, simplicity and modesty. Everything has its purpose, but it is created with imagination and creativity.

Building in numbers
