Formerly the one-of-a-kind Prague Automated Flour Mills, this urban regeneration project not only won numerous awards, but as well ignited re-development in the lower part of Holesovice on a very large scale. CLASSIC 7 is a Landmark Preservation site, including two of the most iconic industrial buildings, from the early 20th century, still left in Prague. The public space interiors paid tribute to the brutal and honest industrial spirit that still permeates the atmosphere there – structures exposed; new elements in light steel and glass; and, machine-like newly added surfaces and textures.
