Old Head Office in Vítkovice

Old Head Office in Vítkovice Close

The building will be used mostly for administrative purposes, and for the purposes of placement tests and as a demonstration centre of hydraulic machines. The wing of the post is a part of the former buildings of the old headquarters of Vítkovice Ironworks and as such it is clearly urbanistically defined. The building is renovated, almost a copy of the original building. It is furnished with the architecture of its time in modern shape. The design also respects the new overall solution of the surfaces, which are kept in classical plaster after the facades were insulated. The newly designed solid panels are customized to the overall solution. The original pattern of windows is preserve.
