The property was built in 1996 on the exact spot where in the 30’s and 40’s of the 19th century, was the Association of Fine Arts pavilion, whose members were influenced by artworks of the famous and one of the most significant personality of the Czech statuary – Josef Václav Myslbek, after whom the building bears name.
A special point of interest of the building is a remarkable metal gate, which faces the Na Příkopě street, as it weighs over eight tons and is made completely of stainless steel. It opens and closes every day, which always takes longer than six minutes. According to the designers’ vision, it symbolizes the original division of the Old and New Town and should also evoke gates of castles, which once used to stand here.
The shopping gallery boasts an exceptional work of art - the largest glass installation in Central Europe, designed by Maxim Velčovský and produced by the Czech company Lasvit. The impressive hand-blown glass sculpture depicts a crystal vortex. The Myslbek Shopping Gallery brought it to her twentieth birthday.
The Myslbek Building underwent a substantial reconstruction. The entrance halls from Na Příkopě street were modernized as well as other common areas such as the restrooms and lift lobbies. Myslbek gained the green certificate BREEAM In-Use. Architectural studio Jestico + Whiles are the ones behind the redesign project.
In the year of its opening in 1996 the Myslbek Palace was one of the first post-revolution commercial Buildings in the centre of Prague, designed by studio AHK architects. At the present time, the 17,000 sq m of office rentable space is being used by several international companies representing various market segments.
