The factory that originally produced components for the aviation industry is associated with the names of pilots of the Czechoslovak Army František Klepš and Zdeněk Vinopal. The concept foresaw a vertical factory and that is why the ceilings are up to 4.3 metres high with exceptional load carrying capacity of the structure. In 1984, the building also served as a civil-defence shelter for up to 300 persons.
The Microna building, the unmistakable dominating feature of the Prague district Modřany, was rebuilt into an office complex after the Velvet Revolution. It is undergoing a conversion now. It is said to be the largest conversion of office space into residential premises in the Czech Republic. This conversion is being implemented as part of the Vanguard Prague project by our company that has been the owner of the building since 2004.
The former Microna building has been associated with culture and arts for several years. Among other things, it has been utilized as generous space for exhibitions or artistic studios. Not even the current reconstruction can do without arts. This fact is evidenced by the partnership between PSN and the personalities of the Czech street art scene and the creation of unique works of art covering some well-known buildings in the centre of Prague.
