Lilium Tower in Warsaw

Zaha Hadid was recently chosen in a contest held by Lilium, an Israeli company, wich owns the Marriott LIM-Centre complex in the capital of Poland, to build a tower of 250 meters in the city of Warsaw.


The tower design is light and transparent but with a strong sense of identity and character. The tower will complement the Palace of Culture and other towers nearby, creating their own profile within the new group of tall buildings that are made in the city.


The tower has an area of 130,000 m2 and will consist of a residential complex and a luxury hotel. Among the services that will include are: a spa area, restaurant and a small store located in the basement, an area where parking is also placed.


The construction of the tower is planned for completion in 2012

  2. The lights are beautiful! I wonder how much electricity it uses. They probably use LED bulbs or something like that. Do you live near there?
