Olivia Star Top
The conference/event space was designed with the idea of creating a contemporary living room in mind. It is located at the level of over 150m above sea level, in the tallest building in northern Poland, "Olivia Star". The project assumptions were to refer to Gdańsk's historical Artus Court – a meeting place for merchants and a centre of social life, so that both business and private guests feel comfortable here.
The great advantage of this space is its towering ceilings, of over 6 metres in height and the completely glazed facade, through which there is a panorama of the Tri-City. The view of the Bay of Gdańsk changes with the seasons as does the panorama of the Tri-City Landscape Park. Further elements gently complement the decor without competing with the views through the windows. We have combined classic and modern aspects with traditional stucco elements acquiring a modern resized form. Suspended in space, they replace the ceiling without optically lowering the height of the room. Spot lighting "scattered" on the ceiling emphasizes their configuration.
Stucco details also appear on the walls. In combination with modern graphics, they create original spatial compositions. The interior is dominated by pastel colors. A unique pattern was designed for the carpet, which also refers to the stucco motif. To create an even more cozy atmosphere in the foyer, an oak floor was used. This classic element is juxtaposed with the mirror-like shape of the elevator and stone stairs leading to the floor below.
The area of 800 sqm can be separated into 3 independently functioning conference rooms thanks to mobile walls.
A central element of this floor is the Meissen tiled stove from around the 18th century. A masterpiece in its category and formerly, an indispensable element of the decor of wealthy mansions and palaces, the stove has found a place here as well. It alludes to the history of the Polish King, Augustus II the Strong, and the porcelain factory he founded.
