A high architectonical and design standard, a green roof with a view of Bratislava Old Town, a boutique hotel style reception with concierge service, preferential parking for electric cars and cars with low CO2 emissions and a variety of other gadgets will soon be available thanks to UNIQ Staromestská.
The project in the historical centre of Bratislava grew from the workroom of the Cresco Group development company who pride themselves on providing their clients with the most up to date technologies and extra services.
“Our intention was to design a space which would bring a new perspective to the quality and standard of administrative offices,” said Ján Krnáš, executive director of the Cresco Group.
The developer aimed to lower its influence on the environment during construction, for example, by taking measures to prevent the build-up of dust and the separation of waste at the building site.
“Our emphasis was that the smallest amount of waste should end up on the waste dump. We also monitored the building materials used,” stated Marek Kremeň from the Exergy Studios company, which realized the LEED certification for the UNIQ Staromestská project. The hope is now that the building with its glass façade will be awarded a gold level, green LEED certificate when it is completed.
To provide a pleasant atmosphere in the building, the common spaces were designed in harmony with the philosophy of biophilia (the need of people to be in a contact with nature, which has positive influence on person’s working performance). The accessible green roof offers a place to relax and hold events for the lessees as well as a better isolation characteristic for the roof, lower amounts of dust and it acts as a rain trap. Modern materials together with the vegetation ensure that the roof will reflect about 78 per cent of sunlight which eliminates the ‘heat island’ effect that the building might otherwise cause.
This unique architectural project with three underground and seven over ground floors offers clients 7,565 square metres of administrative offices and 917 square metres of retail and shop space. UNIQ Staromestská will open its doors to its first lessees in May 2017.
