Fragment: A New Chapter in Rental Housing Now Launched

Based on an exclusive agreement with the Trigema investment group, Svoboda & Williams is launching the first rental phase of the apartments in the Fragment residential project. This unique building, which from the very beginning was conceived to combine architecture, art, and residential development, is nearing the finish line—the first residents can move in december of 2022.

Fragment is the result of the collaboration between the Trigema investment group, architects David Wittassek and Jiří Řezák from the prestigious Qarta studio, and artist David Černý. Behind the building’s facade made up of dynamically pixelated blocks, there are now 140 apartments for rent that have been fully furnished with designer pieces and elements from floor to ceiling. “Fragment has the ambition to rewrite the chapter on rental housing in the Czech Republic. With its blend of art and design both inside and out, its added services, and superior standards, it goes well above and beyond “ordinary” residential housing,” says Marcel Soural, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Trigema Group.

Future tenants of Fragment will surely appreciate availing themselves of the most modern facilities that guarantee maximum comfort. Each unit’s equipment includes heating and cooling through active ceilings, air-conditioning with heat recovery, filtration, and humidity and air supply temperature treatment, and a Loxone Smart Home system that allows them to adjust the temperature to their liking as well as the apartment’s ventilation, lighting, intercom, and security. Convenience and carefree living is also ensured by a wide range of services readily available to Fragment’s residents.

The building itself is not only an extraordinary architectural landmark, but has also made use of the most modern construction techniques and solutions. These include, for example, ground-to-water heat pumps with a system of 30 geothermal boreholes 180 m deep, well and groundwater for operational consumption, and green roofs covered with vegetation.

Final approval is planned in november of 2022.

Svoboda & Williams Is Exclusively Selling an Apartment Building by Brabenec Hill in Smíchov

Based on an exclusive agreement, the Svoboda & Williams real estate agency is launching the sale of a completely refurbished apartment building that is part of a traditional neighborhood at the foot of wooded Brabenec Hill on the border of Smíchov and Radlice.

This apartment building from the end of the 1950s has been completely reconstructed and extended, receiving final approval in 2021. It consists of thirteen units and eight garage parking spaces. All of the apartments are currently rented out on a long-term basis, but the building can be further extended by approximately 770 sq. m. of residential space and 8 additional parking spaces can be added.

With a receding top floor, the building is surrounded by a new garden. The high amount of greenery in the immediate area includes the Prokopské and Dalejské Valley nature park, which can be reached on foot. The building therefore offers attractive living in a peaceful neighborhood with quick access to the city center and is an interesting investment opportunity.

Sale of Attic Apartments in a 19th Century Brno Palace Launched

The Svoboda & Williams real estate agency is launching the sale of eleven apartments that are emerging in the Bernhard and Samuel Morgenstern Palace right by Lužánky Park.

The palace, built in the spirit of late Historicism by the prominent architect Josef Nebehosteny, is now being expanded by a loft extension that will result in eleven apartments, including two duplexes. The units will offer studio and one-bedroom layouts and floor areas from 37 sq. m. to 82 sq. m. All will be completed to a quality standard that consists of wooden floors, Dakea skylights, or underfloor heating in the bathrooms.

The palace itself has a unique atmosphere underscored by common areas decorated with ornamental stucco, and artistic wood, metal, and glass elements. Hallways have original tiled floors and a staircase with a preserved cast-iron railing. “The attic apartments on Štefánikova 1 aren’t being created like a typical building extension, but more like an artistic housing project. A work that is truly original—a jewel in terms of investment with a high future financial value,” says Robert Konrád from the Realdata company, which is developing the project.

“Within the context of Brno, this is a very attractive location within easy reach of the city center and close to the greenery of Lužánky Park. All of Brno’s university faculties are also nearby. The apartments in the palace are therefore an interesting investment opportunity since there is a high demand for rental housing in the neighborhood,” says Tereza Štěrbová, Senior Property Consultant at Svoboda & Williams’ Brno branch.

Christie’s to Auction Andy Warhol’s Legendary Shot Sage Blue Marilyn Portrait

Christie’s auction house will offer Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe portrait this May. One of the most iconic paintings in history and an example of the visual power that Warhol’s artworks still exude, the portrait’s estimated worth may be up to 200 million dollars and has the potential to be the most expensive 20th century artwork sold at auction.

Along with his Campbell’s Soup Cans, the portrait of Marilyn Monroe is one of Andy Warhol’s most famous works. Already one of the legends of Pop Art, he began immortalizing the Hollywood beauty through silkscreen printing in 1962, shortly after her death. In 1964, he developed a more refined but much more demanding screen printing technique, which he used to hold up a mirror to the era’s ubiquitous mass produced images. This resulted in the very limited number of images he created, one of which is Shot Sage Blue Marilyn.

The famous painting is currently owned by the Thomas and Doris Ammann Foundation, which was started by the Ammann siblings, who opened the Thomas Ammann Fine Art gallery in Zurich in 1977. All proceeds of the sale will benefit the foundation, whose mission is to improve the healthcare of children and provide them with educational programs worldwide. The rare portrait is expected to be sold for a record-breaking 200 million dollars.

“The most significant 20th century painting to come to auction in a generation, Andy Warhol’s Marilyn is the absolute pinnacle of American Pop and the promise of the American Dream encapsulating optimism, fragility, celebrity and iconography all at once,” says Alex Rotter, Christie’s Chairman, 20th and 21st Century Art.

Dva Domy Offers Retail Premises on One of the World’s Most Attractive Streets

Křižíkova Street is now a sought-after “high street” that sets the stage for the rest of Karlín. Standing in its very center is the multifunctional Dva domy project developed by Karlín Group, which will add premium apartments and two retail premises to Karlín’s main commercial thoroughfare. New owners of the latter will appreciate having excellent visibility and direct access to the street that Time Out magazine ranked among the most interesting in the world.

The character of a progressive urban district is defined by streets that act as distinctive micro-locations, and so everything city dwellers need can be found in a relatively compact neighborhood. An excellent example is Prague’s Křižíkova Street, where superlative restaurants, a rich spectrum of services, smaller design shops, famous brand stores, and the headquarters of local and foreign companies all meet.

Contemporary architecture lives side by side with Art Nouveau buildings, and there are also plenty of green spaces for relaxation, whether on Karlínské náměstí Square with its Neo-Romanesque church, on Lyčkovo náměstí Square, or in the newly emerging park by the Corso Karlín and Corso II office buildings. The Dva domy project, designed by the Bevk Perovič Arhitekti studio, stands in the immediate vicinity of Corso Karlín. Its eight floors offer a total of 112 apartments and 2 street-level retail premises—one with a floor area of 893 sq. m., and the other with a floor area of 636 sq. m.

The two retail premises now provide the opportunity to create something truly original in a successful and increasingly sought-after neighborhood. The other advantage of the spaces is their diversity of usage, e.g. as a design concept store, a beauty salon, a modern optician’s, or impressively designed offices, all of which have windows onto the dynamic street just outside.

Eleven Attic Apartments Are Being Created in a Palace by Brno’s Lužánky Park

Eleven apartments are being built in a building from the end of the 19th century designed by architect Josef Nebehosteny, a remarkable example of the Late Historicist style. The units will soon be added to Svoboda & Williams’ listings.

The building—a listed cultural monument since 2009—is situated on the corner of Kotlářská and Štefánikova streets. Located within easy reach of the center of Brno and facing Lužánky Park, it offers beautiful views, particularly from its corner section, which is augmented by an octagonal bay window. The attic apartments occupy the building’s third floor, and therefore offer a unique opportunity to purchase real estate with a great investment potential.
