Long Description:

Colourful and shaped by soft organic curves, it is the Main Point Karlin building, a new hi-tech landmark structure, visible from far away. It is located in an attractive environment close to the Prague city centre, but with great accessibility by both car and public transport. The building, finished in February 2012, will be used as center of Vienna Insurance Group in Prague.

Building uses a number of approaches in its sustainable design, among them, using the River Vltava's water throughout the summer for building cooling, and hereby eliminating the need for compressors and chillers. Cooling is further naturally regulated by the coloured fibre-C elements on the facade which are not only aesthetic but serve to reduce heat gains from sunlight penetration. Main Point Karlin obtained the highest LEED Platinum level rating.

Every year the world's best buildings compete for the prestigious MIPIM Awards in Cannes. This year Main Point Karlin was among the finalists. Building designed in Prague by PSJ Invest, wins the MIPIM Award in the category of Best Office and Business Development. The office building was designed by the Prague atelier DaM. Functionality and design were decisive factors for the principals and architects of the building.
