#Multifunctional building #Brno #1930
This building with a maximum of 11 storeys consists of a reinforced concrete structure and cladding made of white opaque glass. On the ground floor there is a freely accessible passage with a gallery and access to the 1st floor. This area is illuminated by a ceiling made of glass bricks. From the passage's first floor are leading stairwells to the flats, which are not part of the public accesses. The flats are arranged around two inner courtyards that allow light to pass through for the passage. Especially the passage with its various shops has a good effect on the visitor, especially since many details, such as the shop windows and aluminum frames, seem to be in their original condition.
This short video from the Brno tourist information was shot on the roof top of Palace Alfa.
Construction work started in 1930, the cinema in the basement was opend in 1932, the entire building in 1937.
