The Florentinum qualifies as the largest office building in Prague. Its design quality together with the elegance of its interior put it in the top tier among high-end buildings of its kind in the Czech capital. Located within walking distance to the central station and the historic city centre, it offers an attractive location and great accessibility. The differentiated outdoor lighting using ERCO luminaires guides through the complex and adds significantly to its high amenity value.
The building complex, developed by investment group Penta and designed by the prestigious architectural firm of Cigler Marani Architects in Prague, is housed largely inside an extended block of buildings. Parts of the complex rise nine storeys above ground, looking out over an inner courtyard. Together with the adjacent building, it forms a further yard arranged as a garden. The design of these semi-public open areas was a particular priority for the investors and architects. Whereas the piazza, which in the first instance adds to the prestige and integration of the complex into its urban surrounds, engages in a distinct formal dialogue with the straight-lined architecture of the building, the garden courtyard projects a more contemplative character.
