as CHYBIK + KRISTOF’s design is the first substantial project southeast of the city center, the architects encourage further urban development in the existing area and emphasize that ‘in a complex urban structure, infills are a pragmatic solution for sustainable urban change. promising existing plots and infrastructures need to be revisited and redesigned.’ titled the riders on the storm, the neon light installation by petr dub that adorns the building’s exterior imitates a lightning rod, inspired by the famous doors song. the dominant feature of the building are the large windows, a nod to its industrial heritage, accompanied by private terraces. ‘historically, corner buildings are at the intersection of a main meeting point, and act as visual urban anchors in navigating the city – they are defined by their verticality and the decorative elements that mark their importance,’ the studio notes.
