Residence Nádraží Žižkov

Benthem Crouwel Architects designed a residential complex in the Nádraží Žižkov area in Prague: a unique concept that offers its residents a functional, modern and private home with the luxury of access to urban amenities, abundant green space and neighborhood activity: the best of both city and nature.

Unity in diversity

On a lush hillside, two large, curved apartment complexes together accommodate 450 dwellings. The architectural concept of shifting and stacking modular units creates a visually interesting landscape of façades, while making optimal use of daylight and giving all apartments great views. There is a strong sense of place and atmosphere: it feels friendly, recognizable and relatable, and each apartment is identified as a private, independent home.

A park right at your doorstep

The jury was impressed by the compelling architecture and the variety of apartments, that accommodates the client’s request to cater to a large spectrum of potential residents. It was, however, the inspired concept to integrate a large, 1-hectare central park into the project that convinced them. By placing the apartment buildings right at the edges of the plot, a large space opens up in the middle. This space becomes the green heart of the project: open to both residents and locals from the adjoining neighborhoods, it functions as a communal space for people to connect, relax, and enjoy the outdoors. A biodiverse environment where local species and plants can thrive, free of cars and noise pollution, it’s a highly valuable addition to the area.

Residence Nádraží Žižkov offers its residents the best of both city and nature: optimal access to all urban resources and a lush park to relax and connect.
