The temporary construction from recycled shipping containers with its industrial aesthetics refers to the history of Holešovice. The content follows the current changes of this district: The rough shell hides a pleasant city café with large glazed openings to the surroundings.

Two shipping containers, placed parallel to the street, form an optical and sound curtain for quiet sitting in the park. The third container is placed diagonally on the other two to create two terraces. The mass of the container becomes a clear element visible from the main access axes.

The sober color palette and industrial materials are accentuated in the interior by precise, atypical details. Visitors are placed at the intersection of two realities: the rough industrial product and boutique-café.

The building symbolizes the spirit of Holešovice with its romantic industrial heritage that stays on the borderline between rejection (older generation) and embracement (younger generation).
