Introducing Via Una, an elegant marriage between old and new, located in the prestigious Prašná brány district of Prague and designed by renowned architects, Marani Architects. In the centre of all the hustle and bustle of this vibrant area, stands an astounding example of modernist architecture. Originally built between 1930-32, Via Una is a UNESCO protected building now transformed into a thoroughly modern, state-of-the-art office and retail space.
The exterior is strikingly similar to the original build while the interior gently presents a modern minimalism with art deco aesthetics. The sophisticated colour palette of white, deep greens and glistening gold features throughout both the interior and the exterior of the building giving a cohesive consistency throughout the project.
Following this attention to detail is where Laufen products find themselves. A combination of Val washbasins, WC’s and bidets provide an elegant lightness, reminiscent of the buildings 1930’s architecture, while the semi-public areas feature the reliability of Caprino urinals and undermounted Laufen washbasins, effortlessly integrated into the elegant marble washstands.
In recognition of the success of the project it has recent been awarded Best International Mixed Use architecture 2022-2023 from the prestigious International Property Awards, following on from awards at both national and European levels.
