This mixed-use building in Prague, comprising six residential aboveground storeys, two ground-floor shops, a two-level basement car park and an office block, was built after the demolition of four old housing blocks. In architectural heritage areas like Zizkov, new developments are subjected to strict conditions, so the building had to adhere to the neighbouring street and cornice line as well as articulating the front face of the building to reflect its original four-part composition. Since no conditions were imposed on the design of the residential courtyard, the architects seized the opportunity to create a richer world here: the different apartment sizes are reflected in the colours of their entrance doors and the owner's maisonette flat is raised on pillars on the roof of the office section. The roof lights suggest prefabricated sewerage shafts while the maisonette recalls old Zizkov workshops, showing how well the architects have studied the history of the place.
