After a challenging reconstruction, Vila Silenta, built in 1912, was introduced to the professional public. David Raiser, CEO of the development group SOLO Praha, which is behind the project, says, "For us, Hřebenky is a hidden gem of Prague. From the beginning, we knew we would try to preserve as many original elements as possible or replace those that were too damaged with replicas. However, we were aware that the standards of today's life are completely different."

The reconstructed house was designed by architect František Kavalír, a student of Jan Kotěra. Vila Silenta, located near other modernist monuments, attracts architecture enthusiasts with its view of Prague. "We wanted to preserve the original beauty but bring the villa into 2024 so that it would be a beautiful place to live," adds Raiser.

The challenging reconstruction culminated in a week-long open house for professionals and potential buyers, during which the developer also showcased the interiors. The furnishings were done in collaboration with renowned brands such as the German manufacturer Rolf Benz, Czech glassworks Brokis, and the high-end bathroom fittings manufacturer Gessi.

Our glass also had the special honor of adorning the villa at the grand opening. Eva Raiser approached us, and together we selected glass that matches the style of Vila Silenta.

The villa is now waiting for its new owner.
