The Panna & Baba Apartment house is located in a quiet part of Prague-Strašnice.
At the edge of small development and park lots a plot is set between two different types of development. Two masses, both reacting to the surrounding houses and the necessary distances are united by architectural expression which is based on unifying facade material (ceramic tiles cladding) and strictly square windows with size derived from their function.
The form duality founds its reflection in the name of the project. Derived from the typical silhouette of the Bohemian Paradise. The spatial concept of the apartment house is based on non-ostentatious modernity and the pursuit of a pleasant living environment which does not oppress the surroundings with privacy insights. A well-mixed ratio of openness and closedness is a guarantee of house's urban expression.
The house entrance is designed as a semi-public pation. The place for both meeting and relax between public and private world.

The house was designed in order to meet higher technological standards. The main supporting structure is made of reinforced concrete. The doors and windows are made of aluminum. The contact facade is lined with ceramic cladding in combination with smooth plaster. The technical quality consists of strict adherence to the set architectural detail.
