Project description

V Offices is an 8-storey building with a 2-level underground parking. An excellent infrastructure for cyclists and space for charging electric cars has been implemented, which will significantly reduce the emission of exhaust gases into the atmosphere. We were conscious how important air quality is in Krakow because of the frequent smog in the city.

The distinguishing element of V.Offices is its interaction with the immediate surroundings. In order to meet air quality levels, V.Offices designers have used a gas fuel boiler, regarded as the cleanest possible, supported by zero-emission roof systems for solar collectors. An efficient ventilation system, effective air filters and office surfaces with low content of formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds were also taken care of, ensuring the comfort of future tenants.
