Penta wants to use the former brewery site for a residential development, which should offer up to 400 apartments in an attractive location close to the city centre. The listed 17th century brewery building will house office and retail space and when complete will give the area a completely new appearance, helping return it to its historic roots as a centrepoint of Nusle. Initial design studies feature a town square with cafés and restaurants and renewal of a street which used to cross the site.
The architectural design of the whole project by the CMC architects and Chybík + Krištof studio combines the meticulous renovation of historical buildings with a new concept of residential development. It respects this historical site dating back to the era of the Czech industrial boom as well as its genius loci and links it to a modern lifestyle. The tradition of social, cultural and sporting events is very much alive here, and therefore it will become a place for community activities in the spirit of the gatherings in the brewery garden of the past. References to the famous brewery history of beer makers, barrel makers and other crafts are present at every turn. Free of noise and traffic, it emits a feeling of peace and security.
