Jointly designed by Arup and Unism on the behalf of the collection’s owner – KDW Automobile – the hi-tech garage has been described by the design team as “a cave-like space inspired by the cinematic universe of James Bond.”

“Hidden under a grassy knoll in one of the Warsaw’s leafy residential areas, a winding access ramp slithers into the subterranean car showroom, where curved walls add texture to this sophisticated showroom,” they continue.

Designed so that daylight seeps in via a three-meter wide skylight, it has been designed so that the subtle lighting scheme “creates a dusk-like glow which will intensify the visitor experience.”

Of the other features, this fanciful subterranean cavern will include a rotating platform, an exhaust extraction system, sustainable water retention solutions and a pump system to collect geothermal energy to provide all-year heating.

Ultimately, though, most striking is an underlying aesthetic that seeks to blur the boundaries between the natural and artificial world.

Speaking to Designboom, Arup’s associate director, Piotr Konarzewski said: “Our team drew on their design and digital expertise to make sure we could provide solutions to the different challenges we met on the way – the site and the location next to a river.

“Our strong collaboration has helped unlock the magic of this project, which draws visitors in to reveal a high-tech underground lair for an extraordinary classic car collection that is sure to catch the eye of car lovers everywhere.”
