UK-based Zaha Hadid Architects has unveiled its winning design for the Lilium Tower in Warsaw, Poland.

The 240 m high, 101200 m2 tower for developers Lilium Polska, is a “light, transparent structure with a strong sense of identity and character”, according to a spokesman for the architects.

It will feature an apartment hotel, residential apartments, spa facilities, underground retail area with an adjacent exterior mall, restaurant, and underground parking. On the ground floor, four separate lobbies provide access to the hotel, apartments, restaurant and delivery area.

A “low energy strategy” informs the design, which includes “low-energy services designed to cope with the extremes of the local climate”, added the spokesman.
