Long Description:

The Danube House, resembling by its sharp triangular shape ship's prow, is one of architecturally most interesting buildings in new Prague' commercial and residential complex River City at the banks of the Vltava River in Prague' district Karlín.

Danube House, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and finished in summer 2003, was the first and flagship building anchoring the recently established River City Prague. The building, forming a dramatic prow as it rises to 11 storeys, profits from its unique setting, a triangular site wedged between road and river, A large glazed atrium faces the city, providing an environmental buffer and mitigating road noise for the offices, which wrap around the atrium in an "L" shaped configuration. Workspaces overlook the tranquil river or the city’s landmarks. Air drawn from the bio-corridor flows through the building’s undercroft, where it is naturally tempered before treatment and distribution to the atrium and the offices. Panoramic lifts bring everyone to the heart of the building. High level walkways across the atrium glass wall encourage informal encounters. The atrium folded glass wall cuts into a split face finish red sandstone volume. Its random fenestration provides a liveliness within the disciplined structural framework.
