project and realization
Pivovarská 2, Žilina
Michal Maximilián Scheer

Residential building with street-level retail is situated at the corner of a square in the city centre, in the immediate vicinity of the city theatre. The arrangement of the building is tied to its specific exposed location. Vigorous massing gives the house a constructivist character. The composition culminates at the corner which is emphasized with curved terraces. The street level of the building is alleviated by extensive glazing. A winter garden is located at the third floor. M. M. Scheer also designed the interior of the building, with built-in furniture and an interesting winding staircase.
