In the spirit of classical architectural forms, our design for this apartment building unifies the public space of a valuable location and offers high quality housing, on the site of the hotly debated “Maršmeloun” in the immediate vicinity of the St. Agnes Monastery.
The building’s form is based on the traditional concept of the façade – we designed the first to fourth floors with a structured division and a distinctive texture with a combination of grey-beige and white plaster. The upper two floors of the house are distinguished by the material – crowned with brass cladding which is also referenced on the window openings within the floors below. The building offers views of the historic centre and across the Vltava River to Letna. Owing to the layered design of the building and the colours of the materials, the upper part naturally integrates into the roof scape of the surrounding city.
The architectural details of the building are based on traditional, high quality materials. The architecture of the entrance hall, staircases and corridors is based on the concept of the whole building; a simple form which is functional using materials including stone and solid wood. The design of the apartments follows the same concept and is intended to provide users with maximum comfort and provide a high standard of living. The smaller apartments are located on the 1st to 4th floors, whereby the premium apartments are on the 5th and 6th floors with views of the surrounding city.
