The Augustus residential villa is located in the villa quarter of Prague's Strašnice district.
The surrounding development is composed of family villas and semi-detached houses. The new house was built on a plot where an unsuitable family house had been torn down.
The plot was also extended by purchasing the neighbouring garden.
The apartment building has four above ground and one below ground floors, contains 9 luxury apartments and 17 parking spaces in the underground garage.
The southern part of the plot was divided into 3 gardens that belong to the ground floor apartments.
These gardens are terrace gardens: because of the plot's sloping, and tall greenery on the premises.
The house was designed and built as a low-energy building, i.e. the annual heating consumption for space heating does not exceed 50kWh/m2.
The building has hot-air heating with heat-recovery ventilation units in each flat.
A heat pump with four wells in the ground is the source of heat for space and DHW heating. Ventilation units in each flat also allow passive cooling in the summer months and use energy from the ground wells.
The building's mass is divided into two three-storey masses with an inserted, built-in communication core mass (staircase with elevator) that goes to the 4th, retreating storey.
The main masses of the building and the inserted communication core, contrast with each other in terms of colour and material (light plaster, dark panelling).
The northern facade to Na Výsluní street is more closed, with plastered surfaces, and a composition of French windows and wall panels between them.
Large glass surfaces in the staircase area pointing towards the street, strengthen the division into the two main masses.
The southern facade opens itself towards the garden using large glass surfaces and cantilevered balconies, framed by a smooth, light plaster in a light colour.
The retreating storey terminates in a thin, strongly cantilevered ledge which gives an impression of lightness, when looking at the last floor.
The main masses of the building are covered by a smooth, light-coloured plaster.
The inserted communication core mass, the retreating storey and the western two-storey building side are panelled by big, veneered boards, made by Parklex.
The windows are wooden, made out of EURO profiles, with a triple glass in a dark shade.
The windows have exterior horizontal blinds to avoid overheating of residential spaces in the summer months.
Balcony and terrace railings are entirely made out of glass with an inserted half-transparent film.
