Ohrada apartment building

The corner of the Ohrada crossroad was transformed into a new, pleasant square moving the public space of the Koněvova Street - the main artery connecting Žižkov with the city centre - up to the next level. The new public space is articulated by the dynamic architecture of the new building and the existing street pattern. The new square offers opportunities for a range of social activities from “farmers' markets” and street concerts to meeting with neighbours.

The apartment building will provide quality housing with excellent transport accessibility near the Vítkov Park. The green semi-public courtyard will provide space for relaxation and leisure time for residents and locals alike. The semi-private front gardens, balconies and terraces with a view of Parukářka, Židovské pece, Invalidovna, the Jewish memorial and park in Vítkov will become a quality addition to the existing locality. The future residents of the apartments and neighbours of the wider area will appreciate amenities that have been lacking in the area for the long time - a new grocery store offering a full range of convenience goods and a selection of cafés and restaurants along the street front.

Public surveys suggest that in general Prague citizens do not object to new development; however this is often not the case, if it is in their neighbourhood which can then lead to protest. The public consultation of the Ohrada building generated a positive response from the residents of neighbouring apartment buildings and houses early in 2020. The audience said: “It has to be said that it is a very nice, city-forming project”. The participants of the public consultation appreciated the comprehensive approach of the architects and the developer, the preservation and improvement of the current car parking area, new square and better connection of Koněvova Street with Vítkov Park.
