Franz Kafka Society Center in Prague, Czech Republic by STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Article source: STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS

The basement of the small one-story building, formerly used for laundry and storage, now houses a space for exhibitions, lectures, and concerts, as well as it accommodates Franz Kafka’s private library. On the first level of the building the Franz Kafka Society has located its offices. The previously dark and dismal spaces of the building are now washed in daylight coming through newly inserted windows and skylights that provide unexpected views to the towers of the Maisel Synagogue. Marcela Steinbachová (Skupina) and Steven Holl Architects have deliberately situated these windows off axis to the interiors. Inside the building new visual connections through openings and inspection holes give its small spaces depth and create visual connections.

The Origami project is situated in a peaceful residential district in Prague 6 and it consists of 7 houses. The concept is beyond the common idea of individual housing. Formally it’s been defined as a block of flats but the design is closer to the individual residential housing.

The family villa in Prague, Czech Republic by Ing. arch. Jan Lapcik (FUSIONarchitects) and Ing. arch. Jarmila Kopecna

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

Article source: Ing. arch. Jan Lapcik (FUSIONarchitects) and Ing. arch. Jarmila Kopecna

The original family villa is a work by architect Prager from the 1970s. It was not only a unique building, but also one at a unique place that thanks to its orientation offered an exclusive view to Prague and provided necessary privacy at the same time. A strict and exact cube with its austere elegance looked inconspicuous from the street. The villa was originally designed for the architect’s family. Yet the villa kept changing together with the family. The originally open ground floor was encased in masonry walls. Steel columns supporting the single-storied mass of the flat were included in the bricked outer walls. This is how the two-storied block was built accommodating two separate flats – one on each floor. The garden was the outer connecting living space for the life of two generations.

Article source: FAM Architekti

The 100sqm apartment is located in a functionalist building near Letenske Sady. The building designed by the functionalist architect Jan Gillar was completed in 1938. The apartment was originally designed for a couple with a maid, who had a small room adjacent to the kitchen. The narrow plan spans through the whole apartment block in the form of three large rooms, separated by generous glazed double doors. The centre of the apartment faces a large lightwell clad in ceramic tiles, which allows for cross ventilation and some daylight. The rooms have typical functionalist horizontal windows, with a lower cill in the main living room.

Vodafone CEC in Prague, Czech Republic by IO Studio

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Article source: IO Studio

The interior design of the Customer Experience Center was created for the product presentation purposes to the Vodafone clients. The created platform allows the company’s clients to get a personalised and tailored tour which reflects their individual needs and provides them with a ‘know how’ portfolio of the telecomunication technology and services. The showroom area has a familiar feel but yet boasts the most advanced technologies which presents to customer wide range of services and products. This arrangement of space which leads into the customer’s tour firstly brings a relaxation zone from where the individual is intuitively lured pass the „organic walls“ towards the entrance welcome zone. The main part of the presentation occurs at the central – „Onenet“ object which leads from the back section via a narrow corridor and offer to every customer slow transition between the real world and the reality created by Vodafone. From there customers continue to another two, separated and differently shaped, parts where the tour comes to an end.

Attic apartment in Prague, Czech republic by Mooza architecture

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Article source: Mooza architecture

„Small, but flexible“ – Two keywords, which are the best description of this interior design. The space itself is indeed generous in its height, but it is really limited in its ground surface. The challenge was to find here a place for dining, cooking, meeting friends or watching a movie, working and of course – sleeping. Last but not least to create a sufficient amount of storage spaces which are needed for an active life.
