We are convinced that the profile, character and business success are determined by people. From the very beginning we have followed our own path, which is inspired by the values of art. What makes us stand apart from the crowd is our unique approach to real estate, we are particularly interested in places “with a soul”, which we restore to their former glory and give a new, unique function. We do not limit ourselves to building – we look more widely and see more.
Our flagship project is Fort Mokotów in Warsaw – a green enclave in the heart of the city, whose historic buildings combine offices with a unique offer of lifestyle services, recreation and creative industries. We are successively revitalising this place, creating a magical atmosphere and a unique point on the map of the capital city.
In the process of erecting our office buildings and housing estates we cooperate with reputable design studios, and we treat the slogan Build for being as a declaration of our own beliefs. It expresses what is most important to us – the belief that by building, we improve the quality of life of people, which makes them and us better.
An important aspect of our operations is combining culture and art with business. We support artists and artistic projects. We are particularly fond of photography as the art of presenting the world, including architecture, which has become a passion for people associated with White Stone. We actively act as a patron of the Fort Institute of Photography, which was established on the premises of our key Warsaw project – Fort Mokotów. The aim of the Institute is to support and promote Polish photography, also abroad. The FIP organises exhibitions, implements scholarship programmes for Polish photographers and publishes and educates children and youth.
Gardens by Fort is a new restaurant that started its operations in September 2021. The restaurant is located in one of the historic buildings on the grounds of Warsaw’s Fort Mokotów and will delight many.
The concept of the place was created with all those who want to take a culinary journey to different corners of the world in mind. The restaurant offers an international cuisine menu which is certain to stimulate the taste buds of every guest. Authentic dishes are served in an original style, and the entire menu has been supplemented with original cocktails.
The whole place owes its uniqueness not only to the signature cuisine, but also to the space surrounding the spot. Gardens by Fort boasts an unusual industrial interior with lush greenery and a spacious garden with a terrace. Nature inside and outside the building makes it a place to escape from the city without having to go outside Warsaw.

B’Fort is a new event space in Warsaw’s Fort Mokotów, which was commissioned in September 2021. The venue is 360 sqm in size and allows for any interior arrangement for private and corporate events. The advantage of the event room is an openable glass facade, thanks to which it is possible to bring a car into the building.
The space also has a large number of high windows giving access to daylight and a spacious terrace. Nature and historic buildings from the 19th century surround the location itself.
This is one of many White Stone initiatives that go beyond the traditional activities of development companies. The aim of the project was to present – through photography and film – the unfulfilled dreams of outstanding people who have achieved almost everything in their professional lives. Among those involved in the project were Father Adam Boniecki, Urszula Dudziak, Jerzy Stuhr, Maryla Rodowicz, Andrzej Seweryn, Daniel Olbrychski and Tadeusz Rolke.
In 2017, we organised two charity auctions of the “Project Dream” and auctioned collector’s prints. In total, we collected nearly PLN 200,000, which we donated in full to the “Mam Marzenie” Foundation for the fulfilment of dreams of children suffering from life-threatening diseases and to the “Nasza Fundacja” Foundation caring for an orphanage in the Podkarpacie region. “Project Dream” is a long-term initiative. New photos are created and new interviews are conducted, which will be presented and auctioned at charity auctions in the coming years. The launch of this original undertaking reflects the vision of White Stone as a company engaged in creative projects and a socially sensitive organisation.
