Półwiejska 2 is a building which performs office as well as commercial and service functions. It is located in the neighborhood of the Old Town in Poznań at the crossroads of Półwiejska and Krysiewicz Streets.

According to the conception, the building was supposed to be integrated into a close development of pre-war tenement houses in order to reconcile the potential of this place and the vision of investors with concerns and reservations of inhabitants living in the surrounding buildings.
The architects of the Półwiejska 2 project followed the revitalization designs of the European city centers. In effect, the architecturally attractive and coherent with the surroundings solid of the building was designed. The simple and elegant facade has gained some dynamism by diverse width of the elevation panels and window modules.

The application of intelligent steering of installations, including lighting, special bathroom fixtures and the application of so called „greywater" (rainwater) allowed to use the resources in the best possible way.
