GNRS apartment refurbishement

B² Architecture as Architects

This generous apartment with incredible views of the Žižkov tower is located in a building from the early 20th century by builder Dr. Ing. Karel Skorkovský. One of the remarkable things about the building is that there is an observatory on its roof. The apartment, which occupies the entire first floor, has an area of 230 m2 and its resident was the builder himself. The space was in a terrible state after a century of use. The aim of the reconstruction was to reconstruct the apartment according to today's standards with the restoration and completion of the original architectural elements that were destroyed in the last century. The investor was a housing cooperative, which wished a sensitive and inexpensive reconstruction so that it could hand over the apartment to another tenant. We could not leave the apartment without capturing its renewal, but because the apartment was left unfurnished, we decided to capture the space in a more artistic way with the help of dancer Monika Šmídová.
