Post office Prague 4
trade and services
Na Strži 42, Praha
The post office in Pankrác was a highly demanding engineering task because it had to be built directly above the metro line. The building consists of two masses, horizontal and vertical, contrasting in volume and materiality. While the horizontal part opened to the public is designed in exposed concrete, the vertical part with offices is less expressive covered by a curtain wall with subtle aluminium elements. Most impressive part of the building used to be the main entrance that was designed in form of deep slit in monumental curved wall made of exposed concrete. The post office building in Prague is one of Ondreičková's most appreciated works and it was awarded the Union of Slovak Architects Prize.
