Rooted in Czech industry, we are currently building Kolbenova lofts: residential housing with a rustic industrial atmosphere.
The former factory for small machines is one of many abandoned buildings in the industrial area of Prague’s Vysočany neighborhood. Despite its long history, the factory’s unmistakable charm has been deteriorating in recent years. We’ve therefore set ourselves the goal of bringing it back to life through a careful reconstruction. When creating the 215 apartments of various sizes and layouts.We were careful to conserve the identity of the former factory. Due to the generous space of the building, most apartments are lofts.
All design work has been carried out by the experienced architects of the renowned studio Masák & Partner, s.r.o., who have been dedicated to the restoration of monumental and historical buildings with passion and natural care for more than two decades.
In the case of industrial design, functionality and associated attributes such as universality, robustness or operational logic, have always been superior or equivalent to the artistic intent.
The potential use of such buildings is hidden in the approach to their modification for a different function. Cautiously respecting the rules under which these buildings were created, our vision is a combination of the old with the new. It is a continuation of the story through more modern means.
We believe that the past and the present can grow together. We will create a place where inhabitants will belong - a home in which the unique atmosphere of the industrial past will be in harmony with the idea of modern, playful life in the 21st century. We follow the historical trail of the unique "genius loci" and carry out all modifications in such a way that the modernization does not destroy the original solution.
The project is located near the center of Prague, just a few minutes' walk from the Kolbenova metro station and just across the street from the culturally creative Pragovka district. The Kolbenova Lofts are thus one of the further projects that significantly participate in the development of the original Vysočany brownfield. The high activity of developers and city plans is gradually turning the entire area into a modern district with high-quality, timeless housing. In the future, you can count on Vysočany neighborhood having greenery, full civic amenities and space for a culture of sports enjoyment.
