Smichov apartments, Prague

 

The building is situated in the north part of the designed area in Smichov, Prague. First floor with the construction height of 6 meters is on the same level as surrounding terrain. That allows space for the rooftop patio on the top of the first floor, which is on the same level as the terrain near the railway. The rooftop patio naturaly continues to create a green barrier, effectively limiting the noise from the railway.

The mass of the building is determined with the desired views from the apartments. The first block of the building is designed to allow the residents have a clear view of the newly created street. The second block creates a space for the rooftop patio, while the third block is determined with the view of the second street. The fourth block, which is the tallest one, is designed to overlook the Vltava river and Vysehrad Castle. The northern part of the building allows views of the historic city center.
