Okrąglak in Poznań, Poland.


Department Store "Okrąglak" was designed by Marek Leykam and built between 1949-1954. It stands in the place of a bank destroyed buring the Second World War. Ever since it rose from the ground it was arousing controversy for it contrasted greatly with surrouding, 19th-century and socialis realism buildings.

It's a cylinder-shaped, nine-storey building with a centrally located staircase (5 meters in diameter) and three flights of stairs. On the roof of the building there was a terrace surrounded by a balustrade. The building is 45 meters high and covers an area of ​​5.9 thousand m².
Its design and construction is set firmly in the modernism tradition and it was the first building in Poznań made of precast concrete.

In the years 2011-2012 it was renovated and reopened in September 2012. The facades were brought back to their original style and now "Okrąglak" houses various offices.
