The seven-storey building in the very centre of Prague, close to Wenceslas Square, standing between the Galerie Myšák and Langhans House, is a great challenge for us.
After its construction the building with the original name Vítek's House served as the headquarters of the Prague Drugstore and as a Panax photo centre. Later it was mainly used by banking institutions.
Currently, the retail space is leased to the COSTA COFFE café chain and the LOKÁLKA restaurant.
We are preparing retail, commercial and residential units for future users in the floor spaces and in the courtyard wing. With regard to the character of the area, we expect it to be used primarily by law and consulting firms that emphasize the prestigious location of their offices and, in the case of residential units, by those interested in attractive and modern housing in the centre of the capital city.
A set of apartment buildings in the Písnice housing estate in Prague forms the core of our Prague apartment portfolio. However, we did not focus only on the gradual revitalization of the original buildings from 1977–89. We want to take full advantage of the potential of the site, given by the already begun construction of metro D line.
In connection with the anticipated final station "Písnice", we are preparing a comprehensive completion and reconstruction of the Písnice housing estate with top urban planners and architects Pavel Hnilička Architects+Planners.
The first step was the urban planning study "Conceptual Study of the Sustainable Development of the Modernist Structure of Písnice - Libušská" completed in 2018 and presented to the public.
At present, the elaboration has been completed, which envisages the division of the actual implementation into successive stages linked to the construction of the metro.
The first stage is independent from the metro construction and is intended to deal primarily with the transition area between the old development of family houses in the southern part, and apartment buildings in the northern part. This includes projects for the construction of residential buildings in Výletní Street and Na Okruhu Street.
In the next stages, the connection to the landscape will be solved by stretching the Modřany Gully into the centre of the housing estate and connecting it to the central park. This will create a green unit that will strengthen the relationship between the settlement and the surrounding nature.
A square of local significance is proposed in the centre of the settlement, which will primarily serve its inhabitants and complement Písnice Square with its more intimate character. This will become the natural centre of a busy part of the city district after the final metro station is built.
The implementation of the D metro line will connect Písnice to the city centre and significantly shorten commuting distances. The contemplated construction of a park and ride lot on the border of the designed area will relieve the existing burden of transit car traffic, and support the availability of suburban and city buses.
Naturally, the range of services should also be expanded. Our project is a lively city that will
depopulated during the day, but will instead provide a welcoming place to live for residents of

CIB Rental, s. r. o. is implementing a project for the reconstruction of an apartment building in Hrádek nad Nisou, which is financially supported by the European Union. The aim of the project is to improve the thermal-technical parameters of the building structures of the apartment building in order to achieve energy savings and increase living comfort.
