IBA worked as the local executive architects with the UK designers Conran & Partners on the complete refurbishment of the public areas and all 70 guest rooms. The changes to the building, which is located in the heart of Prague’s Old Town, included a lively café / wine bar, which is now the first arrival experience for guests and also attracts locals and passers-by.
The rich interior design theme derives from Prague’s historic architecture and modernist heritage, combining both elements into a styling described as ‘poetic modernism’. Located in the centre of Prague’s Old Town, the building is highly-protected and the design changes had to be painstakingly negotiated with the heritage authorities.
