The Bleriot residential complex in Prague - Kbely is located west of Polaneckého Street as part of a wider transformation zone within walking distance of the Letňany metro station. The existing planning permit defining the volumetric design of the complex was followed by Machar & Teichman with the design of three contemporary apartment buildings.
The three newly designed apartment buildings have horizontal articulation, enhanced on the western facades by continuous spacious loggias overlooking the greenery. The houses are differentiated by complementary colours in golden, nickel and copper shades, which are applied both on the perforated shading panels of the western façades and on the balcony railings and internal staircases of the public areas of each house.

The layout is a combination of apartments from 1 bedroom to 3 bedroom on typical floors with larger apartments within the set-back floors. There are front gardens attached to the apartments within the ground floor. Parking is provided in the basement of the houses.
The studio's aim was to create timeless, simple and efficient architecture within the limited budget of contemporary commerical development, serving its users while offering a quality environment of shared green space.

The design is a transverse load-bearing system, the windows are timber, and the façade is light in combination with hand-grooved horizontal bands and coloured accents within the set-back floors to create generous rooftop apartment terraces.
