GeddesKaňka appointed to head up Design Team for reconstruction of Grand Hotel Europe

GeddesKaňka s.r.o., the Czech and British-owned architectural practice based in Smíchov, Prague, is delighted to announce that it has been appointed as the general designer on the reconstruction of the famous and historic Grand Hotel Europa on Wenceslas Square.

The Grand Hotel Europa building is owned by PPH Europe, which belongs to the Austrian group of Julius Meinl, but once the reconstruction and building work are complete the new hotel will be operated by the five-star luxury hotel chain ‘W Hotels Worldwide’ which is owned by the Marriott International Group.

The Grand Hotel Europa was once one of the most famous hotels in Central Europe, with its long and sometimes murky past, but in recent times it has been operating on the level of a not very good three-star hotel and has become a very faded shadow of its glamorous past. The new owners plan a sensitive reconstruction of the main, listed property, and the construction of a new, second building in the courtyard, together making a hotel that will house 154 rooms and suites as well as a number of bars, several restaurants, and a luxury spa.

Talking about the appointment of GeddesKaňka on this prestigious and high-profile project, Tomas Kaňka the firm’s Managing Director said:

We are very excited about this new project and to have been chosen over several international and well-known design firms is a real testament to the work that we have been putting in to build a young yet exceptionally experienced design team that is able, without any doubt, to deliver on this kind of project. It is obvious that the work will be challenging since it will be blending the best of modern architecture and design with an old and historic building, but we are confident that we are up to the task!

The new hotel is going to be aimed at young customers that are looking for a truly luxurious hotel right in the center of the city that combines the beautiful and historic architecture of old Prague with the best of modern technology. It is planned to be completed in 2020.

GeddesKaňka has made a name for itself as being a young and dynamic architectural practice that offers expertise in the design of shopping malls and mixed-use, commercial and residential units, covering everything from large-scale projects to small family houses. It is presently working on several major projects, including the well-known residential development Zlatý Lihovar, the mixed-use development in Opletalova, and many other architectural and interior design projects.
