Red Hill Rise Prague
Mixed-use building in Prague
Design: Maxwan Architects + Urbanists, Rotterdam + MS architekti
Red Hill Rise, a mixed use building on top of a metro station, consists of offices and retail located along one of the major spine road connecting airport and historical city centre of Prague.
Backdrop of the project is a dramatically steep slope (max. 14m height difference), the site being located in a tranquil residential area while required program is purely commercial and requires expressive architecture.
Furthermore, there is a lack of sufficient public space in the neighborhood.
We came up with the idea of “breaking-up” the building volume and inserting landscape and public space in between.
This approach is not only for being sensitive to the tranquil surroundings avoiding massive building volume, but also aiming for commercially competitive office space yet achieving expressive architecture.
