OFFICE SPACE OF THE „OPEN SPACE“TYPE

OFFICE BUILDING K71 IN KARLÍN

The project of the administrative building K71 gets hold of a unique space in Křižíkova Street between the Music Theatre Karlín and the dominant line of the Negrelli viaduct. It is one of the most accessible locations in Prague, on the border of the first and eighth district. Ideal accessibility for public and private transport is provided by the Florenc metro station on the B and C Lines. The area is also directly connected to the North-South highway.

The building

As an artistic theme of the building, a block of stone was selected with irregular cross-sections, which from oblique views is formed of an impenetrable mass. Zooming in, gradually vistas open up. The internal layout is free, with no barriers, so that when viewed from the front the building has a dematerialized, transparent appearance. To the simple idea of a sawn block the whole façade is subordinated, on which we do not emphasize the parterre and minimize the window frames, which are vertical slits in a stone block.
