Apartment building

C245

The apartment building at No. 3 Bayerova Street is a good example of how the Dvořák and Kuba Building Company operated. Erecting the carcassing took a mere 93 days, from sinking pilots to roofing, yet the house boasted a sophisticated design, layout as well as finely rendered detail. Each floor housed small apartments and studios; the central ice room was even located in the basement. The street facade of the structure consists of a central risalit with the running window of the elevator shaft lighting the staircase, and balconies clad in black opaxite. The opaxite facing was also utilized in the richly lit entrance foyer, whose space is optically expanded by mirrored walls.
Like most apartment buildings in the area, this building is not protected as an object of cultural heritage and is slated for demolition to make room for an extension to the neighbouring Supreme Court building.
