PKO BP Rotunda, Warsaw
Warsaw's Rotunda is a rotunda-type building located at the intersection of Marszałkowska Street and Jerozolimskie Avenues, and one of the most landmarks of Poland's capital city.
The structure, originally built in 1966, has recently undergone a thorough repair. The renovation has taken 3 years to complete. The current Rotunda is a completely new building, though with clear references to the original structure.
Rotunda is one of the most modern buildings housing a branch of PKO PB Bank. But the new Rotunda is much more than just another bank building.
In fact, the bank occupies storeys 0 and -1 only, while storey +1 houses the Meeting Zone. The new space, open to everyone, has been created following public consultations.
The Meeting Zone is a perfect venue for work and meetings. It accommodates a café and offers opportunities to participate in cultural initiatives. Another highlight is the panoramic view over Warsaw's bustling city centre. We are happy to add that in the new Rotunda visitors can comfortably sit on chairs from the Mishell collection designed by Piotr Kuchciński.
