The Food Avenue dining experience at Nový Smíchov was initiated to offer visitors a whole new & modern level of gastronomy with a total of 23 restaurants & cafés. All tenants' kitchens have been rebuilt anew to guarantee best hygiene standards and the previously scattered & outdated toilet blocks have been united and relocated into a single, generous & comfortable washroom facility. The flow of people has been redirected away from the voids and brought in closer contact with the kitchen fronts. This way the central area beneath the skylight was freed up for sunlit seating zones with good visibility to and from the center's retail & entertainment areas. Floor, wall & ceiling finishes have all been replaced to create a contemporary but warm and cozy environment for the various brands. The framework of landlord elements & materials (i.e. planters) and a tenant manual were used to regulate and merge the individual restaurant styles. Special attention was paid to acoustic & visual comfort.

Construction took 6 months in total and was divided into 4 phases to minimize the effect on visitors and tenants. Kitchen areas were stripped to shell & core, new hydro-insulation was applied and new HVAC units installed. Smoke extract fans to each unit have been added and new smoke barriers installed. Sprinkler heads and fresh air supply were relocated to fit the new ceiling design. Acoustic panels are installed above the baffled ceiling to reduce reverberation times and noise levels. New LED lights provide warm and intimate lighting at max 200lux and 3000K. The marble floor was replaced by large format ceramic tiles with improved slip resistance. 4 New food units with water, sewerage, heating and electric connections have been added.
