Zahálka is a new neighborhood created in Prague 4. Seven stylish apartment houses will be built in several phases beside the Vltava River and the Hodkovičky golf course. Beautiful parks with dozens of trees, playgrounds, meadows, a habitat corridor with a natural stream, well-maintained lawns and a garden will fill the areas between and around the houses. Three international architectural studios and a landscape designer are working together to create something more than a high-end modern housing complex.

The two apartment towers are connected by a common garage at the base of the buildings with an car entrance at the 2nd underground floor. Placing buildings on this terrain ridge, creates a partial shield from the surrounding traffic and improve views from the apartments. Pedestrian access to above-ground buildings is solved by a gradual ascent of ramps from an entry piazza in the eastern part of the complex in Mezi Vodami Street.
The above-ground parts of the residential towers are 14 and 12 floors high, . One tower was designed by the Czech studio of under-construction architects, the other by the Slovenian Bevk Perovič architects. Each house has its own unmistakable handwriting, at the same time the architects communicated with each other, for example when choosing materials, and the area looks harmonious.
The outer semi-public space serves as the entrance and exclusive exterior of the buildings.
