This competition win provides a new vision for the internal and external spaces at this landmark Prague office building. The proposals for the external public square respond to the planned adjacent Hilton Conference Center extension (see here) also by IBA.
The new ‘piazetta’ will be enclosed on 3 sides and will have a more human scale than the previous ‘open piazza’. Design elements from the external area are carried into the inside with all corridors and lift lobbies given a new lease of life.
The client is Generali Real Estate and the works are scheduled for 2022.
