PORR completed Žižkovské Pavlače, a unique project combining the reconstruction of historic buildings with new construction

Prague, 22.03.2022 - PORR a.s. has completed works on the Žižkovské pavlače building complex, which is now fully ready for new residents. The project consists of five buildings located in Prague's Koněvova Street near Vítkov Park and is unique in combining new construction with the reconstruction of old buildings from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The investor was MS-INVEST and the budget of the third stage of construction exceeded CZK 260 million.

Žižkovské pavlače offers a total of 141 flats or studios with layouts ranging from 1 bedroom to 4 bedrooms; however, the complex also includes commercial and non-residential premises located mainly on the ground floors of the buildings. Two of the buildings are over 100 years old, so sensitive renovation was necessary.

“One of the project's objectives was to preserve the original historical character of the two buildings, which would fit in with the surrounding architecture of Žižkov. We thus provided replicas of the entrance doors, windows, original paving or railings from the early 20th century," explained Jaroslav Koutenský, the project manager. "The façade of the buildings was also restored, including stucco decorations and plumbing elements - all under the close supervision of the National Heritage Institute and Prague´s Heritage Department," added Koutenský, adding that the reconstruction of the complex also included extensions to the last floors of the buildings.

Future residents will also benefit from the fact that Žižkovské pavlače are an environmentally and energy friendly building thanks to the use of modern technologies during construction.
