Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Article source: Maxwan + MS architekti

Red Hill Rise, a mixed use building on top of a metro station, consists of offices and retail located along one of the major spine road connecting airport and historical city centre of Prague. Backdrop of the project is a dramatically steep slope (max. 14m height difference), the site being located in a tranquil residential area while required program is purely commercial and requires expressive architecture.

Prague National Gallery Entrance Hall in Hradcanske Square, Prague, Czech Republic by Mateo Arquitectura

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: Mateo Arquitectura

In the grounds of Prague Castle, among various palaces currently reused to house the National Gallery, the brief was to design a small building that provides an entrance to the museum complex. Two parallel surfaces organize what used to be an empty space without weighing it down: one forms the floor, the other the roof.

City Green Court in Prague, Czech Republic by Richard Meier & Partners

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Article source: Richard Meier & Partners

City Green Court is the third of a cluster of buildings designed by Richard Meier & Partners and it completes the corner of the Radio Plaza superblock located in the Pankrac area of Prague. The building is conceived of as a geometric volume in dialogue with the near context while offering respected contrast to the surrounding buildings. Smaller in scale than its predecessor and sibling, City Tower, it is equally inspired by the language of Czech Cubism, with a façade that while addressing issues of conservation and sustainability incorporates forms reminiscent of this avant-garde movement. The quote below, in essence, sums up the philosophy and concepts behind City Green Court.

Office Building E in Prague, Czech Republic by Aulík Fišer Architects

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Aulík Fišer Architects

The office building E is the very last piece of development completing the northern part of the BB Center complex along Vyskocilova (street) and a ramp to 5.května (street). So, towards the city centre the bldg. E closes the planned “protection shield” against the negative impact of city highway traffic on residential houses planned for the second phase of development. This part of the Prague-Michle district has now been revitalized, reintroducing the urban environment with multiple functions and restoring it the way it was before the highway – 5.května street – completely destroyed it.
