The CASTLE VIEW RESIDENCE development project in Prague 4, Kavčí hory, Podolí, which received its final occupation certificate in 2017, consists of five residential buildings designed on square and rectangular floor plans. The CASTLE VIEW RESIDENCE boasts spectacular views of the surrounding area, especially of both castles in the city – Vyšehrad and Prague Castle, one above the other, almost in alignment. Views of a large section of the river valley and Barrandov on the opposite banks of the Vltava increase the attractiveness of the project.
Also contributing to the pleasant scale of the entire complex is the use of contrasting materials on the façade of the individual buildings. Light and smooth exposed concrete alternates with dark, distinctly structured rough plaster. Lush gardens with tall trees between the houses enhance life in the city.
A total of 43 flats in two five-storey and three six-storey buildings with layouts ranging from 2 + kitchenette to 5 + kitchenette and floor areas of 56 m2 to 316 m2 passed final building inspections in the residential complex. Residential units on the ground floor of the buildings have private gardens, while the other flats have terraces. Each unit naturally also has a storage cellar and at least one parking space. The investor paid great attention to the high level of standard furnishings and the use of premium materials.
The investor and the architects joined forces to design a project that would provide all the amenities of contemporary architecture that blends in naturally with the local development without disrupting its existing character while also creating homes for clients with a modern 21st century sensibility.
