Two years ago, the City of Warsaw allocated funds (PLN 21,8 millions) for the new center of Warsaw and one of the projects is the creation of a place called Plac Pięciu Rogów “Five Corners Square” at the crossing of Chmielna, Krucza, Zgody, Bracka and Szpitalna. More than just the creation of a new place, this project is also linked to the will of the city to create more green spaces and less possibility of car traffic in the center of the capital. The project is designed by WXCA Sp. z o. o. and architect Michał Kempiński is now completed.
On the place, the former Sphinx restaurant on the Szpitalna 1 building’s ground floor, located on the Plac Pięciu Rogów (Five Corners Square) became a Prosty Temat’s restaurant. This new restaurant initiates the revitalization of the square, with a large terrace in the Place. Already operating in Sopot on the Bohaterów Monte Cassino Street, Prosty Temat offers a large brand of meals: soups, burgers, pizzas, fish, meats, salads, pastas, cocktails, wines, beers are part of the menu.
The square contrasts with the former car traffic passage disrupting pedestrians flow, and the risk of accidents. The place is now reserved for pedestrians, vehicles are authorized with a speed limit of 20 km/h, two dozen of trees, benches, and a piece of art, a giant egg created by the Polish artist Joanna Rajkowska (installed later), restores the vitality of this place.
