The concept divides the high-rise building into two parts “city – Holešovice” and “over the city”. The lower part contains a two-level entrance lobby with a coffee – bar. Five levels are placed above the entrance levels– each one containing two “smaller” flats. At approximately 25 meters in height above ground (8th floor) the building is “split” by a common relaxation lobby. Villa plans are layered in all floors above the relaxation area. Different villa dispositions contain a large flat, its own “garden” and two on storey parking spaces. The project was inspired by the unrealized concept “Highrise of Homes” by James Wines from 1981. The main principle is the interconnection of “gardens”, “villas” and parking in each storey.
