Villa Foksal challenges:
One of Villa Foksal’s primary challenges was to find a space that matched its quality of service and provided an exceptional experience for its guests. With its new event and conference center in Skyliner building, Villa Foksal has found a space that provides a panoramic view of the capital, making it one of the most prestigious event spaces in Warsaw.
“We are delighted that Villa Foksal’s new location will be the top two levels of Skyliner. Our
Skybar, like the entire building, is marked by a unique and elegant design, and the
characteristic sail-shaped top of the office building has become a symbol of the
Daszyńskiego Roundabout, which will now be associated with our new tenant.” said Harald
Jeschek partner of Karimpol Group.
“Due to the pandemic, we have been looking for quite a long time for an operator of this space who would offer services to our tenants on the one
hand while remaining open to the city on the other. Villa Foksal meets both of these criteria.
Starting in September, it will offer business and private events at the Skyliner according to
demand.” added Jarosław Prawicki, executive director at Karimpol Polska.
The new event and conference center in the Skyliner building compliments Villa Foksal’s existing orangerie & garden space in the heart of Warsaw. The new space is located in the very heart of the business center and offers a modern, yet timeless design provided by architecture studio MIXD. The space provides a unique and spectacular view of the city skyline, making it an ideal location for corporate events, conferences, and private functions. The high-quality amenities and modern design of the space ensure that Villa Foksal’s clients receive the best possible experience. The space will offer top-of-the-line multimedia technology, fully equipped kitchen service and a unique atmosphere that sets it apart from other event and conference centers.
The new event and conference center in Skyliner is set to open in September 2023 and will provide a unique and outstanding venue for conferences, events and private functions. Villa Foksal’s selection of Skyliner was a strategic move that will help it to establish a new, innovative, and exciting event and conference center, that will exceed the expectations of its clients.
