Our company accepted the challenge of creating 11 unique meeting rooms for Seznam.cz. The aim was to transform a series of boring and indistinguishable rooms and to introduce a sense of playfulness, pleasant materials and vibrant colours to create informal comfortable rooms where people can meet.
The original meeting rooms were all the same, lacking modern functional features. The impression created by the ground floor was grim, cold and formal. Our team of architects opted for a new design featuring a full colour spectrum – the floor plan of the meeting rooms is a rainbow. The task was to match the materials and colours of the furniture, carpets, acoustic panels and wallpapers, with seating and tables of various shapes that match the shapes of the acoustic panels on the walls. Exposed concrete presents a contrast to the intense colour scheme.
Part of the meeting space opens directly to the street via a glass wall. All rooms are accessible from a long corridor inside the building. The interior walls of the rooms in the corridor are glazed, so the colours pass through into the corridor, evoking a pleasant, playful and friendly atmosphere.
The room names are now associated with individual company departments – or portals, e.g. Mapy.cz in green shades, and Email.cz in orange. The interior of the meeting rooms is refined – every detail is carefully thought through, leading to harmony of colour that is pleasant to the eye, as well as highly functional features.
The interior was implemented over the course of an extended weekend, without disrupting the company's operations. The client was very satisfied not only with the uniqueness of the space and the way in which its ideas were brought to life, but also with the extraordinary speed of implementation.

Palác Křižík

Palác Křižík is one of the most prominent office buildings within the Anděl area in Prague 5’s Smíchov quarter. The core of Palác Křižík is a compound of heritage buildings between the Radlická, Plzeňská and Kováků streets. These buildings underwent comprehensive refurbishment and were retrofitted with seven aboveground floors and four underground floors as part of a later upgrade. The result is an up-to-date office complex with 290 parking spaces, a covered atrium, 3 catering and restaurant establishments, retail space and a public mall.

Each of the two parts of the complex (the earlier and the later) has its own central reception desk with a contemporary design and a 24/7 service. The buildings are equipped with a high quality ventilation and air conditioning system, allowing for natural ventilation by opening windows to a certain degree. The advantage of using several heritage buildings is that the complex can accommodate the various brands of the individual anchor tenants. The modern annex structure has been certified BREEAM Excellent. The complex is equipped with an electronic fire alarm system, ACS Control, CCTV and an intelligent building management system.
