The Polish technology company C&F has expanded its area in the Warsaw office property Tulipan House from 1,300 to 2,150 square metres and at the same time extended the current lease agreement by a further five years. C&F, which specializes in data & cloud engineering for regulated industries, has its corporate headquarters in the building.
“The recently renovated Tulipan House became a unique spot on Warsaw’s map of office spaces”, says Piotr Rudnicki, founder and chairman of C&F. “Its harmonious architecture, handy amenities, efficient interior design and a great lobby make for a cozy and comfortable place be.” Tulipan House was erected in 2008 and is part of the portfolio of the Commerz Real open-ended real estate fund hausInvest; it encompasses approx. 18,000 square metres of office space and was comprehensively refurbished in 2019. Thus the 15-metre high lobby, which to date had merely served as a prestigious entrance, was given a make-over to create a meeting point and event area with a modern design encompassing greened areas and wooden elements, seating zones, table-top soccer and a café from the Costa Coffee international chain. In order to further simplify the communication with the tenants and among the tenants themselves an app was specially developed with which employees can book meeting rooms, order meals and snacks from food trucks, and communicate with the facility management and the reception.
Furthermore, new bicycle stands were created in the building, as were showers for cyclists and a bicycle washing facility. In addition, tenants can utilise a variety of mobility offerings right in front of the door of Tulipan House: alongside electric vehicles from Innogy go! and hire bikes from Revelo, e-scooters are also available round the clock. Sustainable materials were used for the modernisation work. The carpets in the meeting rooms are made of recycled fishing nets and plastic retrieved from the sea, for example. Long before its repositioning Tulipan House had already been awarded the BREEAM sustainability certificate “very good”.
