Rivergardens Z3, Prague, Czech Republic
The site is in a prime location on Thámova Street in Prague, between a generously sized courtyard and the banks of the River Vltava. The quiet location makes it particularly suitable for housing and related functions. The goal is to exploit the characteristic location and to give as many apartments as possible a view of the landscape along the river. This means that most apartments face north-south and extend between generous balconies in the south and large areas of glazing to the north. We interpreted the attic storey stipulated in the development plan as a loosely broken-up level rather than a recessed top floor. A step of half a level in section creates a staggered cut figure that gives the façades their character and creates a kind of saw-tooth silhouette. In this way the structure of the building directly becomes its façade. The façade lattice is made up of large precast concrete parts that produce a sculptural effect. Commission
