Each year, the most innovative, ambitious and exciting real estate projects battle it out in the prestigious MIPIM awards. 2012 featured an impressive mix of projects from across the world competing in eight categories, four of which were new and focused on some of the industry's high-potential sectors.The results were made public on 8th March 2012 in Cannes, France. In the category of Best office and business development a project of Main Point Karlin of the Czech architect studio DaM and developer PSJ celebrated the success.
The architectural design of the Main Point Karlin building combines the harmony of organic, soft curves within an otherwise straightforward and systematic architecture. The untraditional round shapes of the building allow for a new approach to the use of the interior and the smooth curve of the facade allows for placement of fully fledged workspaces along the whole perimeter. Working in the building is made more pleasant with a rooftop terrace with cultivated greenery that is accessible year round and offers beautiful views of the historic centre of Prague. Another outspoken advantage is represented by opening windows in all parts of the building and a ventilation and cooling system that has maximum respect for natural air flows. The core of the building is enhanced with an atrium bringing in natural daylight.
