Tesla sparks back into life
The former Tesla lighting factory is to be adapted in modern office space with an industrial style

CZECH REPUBLIC Cresco Real Estate has begun the refurbishment of the former head office of lighting producer Tesla in Prague’s Holešovice district into modern office space, which now features an industrial style.

The building, which is to be called Uniq Tesla, is being adapted by Slovak developer Cresco Real Estate, this being its first project to reach the execution phase in the Czech Republic. It has one underground and seven above-ground floors, with a total area of 11,000 sqm.

The office space has been designed in an open industrial style, while on the ground floor, which has a height of up to 4.6m, a mezzanine is to be created. A standard floor has a height of 3.8 m and 1,463 sqm. A large terrace with a view onto the entire city will be situated on the top floor, which is to be super-structured. Amenities such as a bicycle parking area, a fitness room with showers and changing rooms are to be located on the underground level.

“The Uniq Tesla project has been designed to provide a working environment that is inspiring for modern professionals with conditions comfortable enough to encourage their creativity. An original corporate environment in a lively district is one of the most effective ways of recruiting highly talented employees,” insists Jan Krnáč, the CEO of Cresco Real Estate.

The former administrative building is the only part of the former Tesla factory that still exists. Cresco Real Estate plans to build apartments within its grounds in the second phase of the project.

The design of the office building’s conversion is the work of the local branch of Scottish studio Bogle Architects, which also designed the Uniq Staroměstská boutique office building and the Uniq Majakovského apartment building – both in Bratislava.

The developer will also be modernising another administrative building in Holešovice – the Metropolitan, which will comprise 4,500 sqm of leasable space and 100 parking spaces. Holešovice is a former industrial district in central Prague. Its factories and slaughterhouses are now being transformed into offices, apartments, cafés, restaurants and art centres.
