Lenka Míková Infuses Prague’s Relax Táboritská With Saturated Colors and Water Treatments

FIRM
SQ. FT. 1,300 SQF

The first hotel project for Lenka Míková was also an auspicious moment for her hometown of Prague. At , a hotel rentable by the hour, was charged with creating a destination that would be attractive, mysterious, and, yes, sexy. “These types of places are usually not well-designed here,” she explains.

The 1,300-square-foot subterranean space, recently a nail salon, was built in the 1920’s as a residential cellar. Míková and her client agreed that its original brick walls and ceiling vaults throughout, including in the five guest rooms, should remain. “We liked their visual effect as long as they didn’t resemble a medieval torture chamber,” she continues. So, she applied a spray treatment to seal and secure the blocks.

Then, taking cinematic cues from the likes of director David Lynch, the architect conceived saturated color schemes and evocative water elements just steps from the beds for three of the guest rooms. In the green room, for example, where the door, walls, floor, and bed are coated in the shade, there’s a luxurious soaking tub. The palette of the red room is evident in its epoxy-resin flooring, which extends into a couple-size shower. (The color is not, however, based on the notorious red room in Lynch’s Twin Peaks.) In the blue room, the ample square-shape hot tub, clad in a porcelain tile resembling sensual veined black marble, is downlit by LED strips. (The remaining two smaller guest rooms have a rustic details, such as wood paneling.)

More LED strips are employed strategically along the floor and around mirrors. In the main corridor, another sultry all-black environment, they fill slim vertical coves uniformly lining the walls. “They’re meant to lead you to follow your passion,” Míková notes. The pendant fixture over the reception desk could evoke passion, too. Perceptive guests may notice its delicate glass forms are bound by black rope.
