Project | LIXA
LIXA is located in the attractive Warsaw district Wola. The main part of the project will be a multifunctional complex of three buildings that are linked together by a spacious green garden courtyard. Huge glass facades made of at least 75% recycled aluminium (post-consumer scrap) cover the building. This means, products that have reached the end of their life, are brought back into the loop by being recycled and re-used in new products for buildings. This doesn’t just save energy – It also generates a far smaller impact on the environment.
The facade made with the prime quality aluminium alloy Hydro CIRCAL has a carbon footprint among the lowest in the world: 2.3 kg CO2 per kilo of aluminium. “By offering facades with a minimal carbon footprint, we can meet the increased demands on the market for sustainable aluminium solutions.” says Hubert Wiśniewski, Commercial Director for WICONA Poland.
Furthermore, LIXA will offer flexible offices with maximum access to daylight and natural ven- tilation. Floors with spacious working places, a green common terrace, a courtyard filled with sunlight surrounded by a relaxing atmosphere for creative meetings and working spaces. This is in addition to various service facilities such as restaurants, pre-school and shops. There will also be a charging station for electric vehicles available.

“LIXA is the third largest complex under construction in Warsaw, it will not only become a work- ing place – It will be a place to spend time, everyday”, says Michał Chrzanowski, HRA Architects. As the building will receive the certification BREEAM Excellent, LIXA will stand out as a durable and climate smart building. “The applied and well thought out system solutions will allow the facility to reduce energy demands in the future”, says Michał Chrzanowski.
