While designing this building the architects recognized the unique position of this place within the Prague relief and spatial relations. The relief edge starting at the site ends by the Vysehrad (castle) creating a skyline for Vinohrady (quarter) across the valley. Despite the robust character of the Nuselský most (bridge) and nearby buildings resting on this edge, they tried to follow the fine features of the dominant Karlov (church) and Vysehrad; they wanted to adhere to the accents whose scale does not oust them from the urban environment, but make it its natural component. So, the building designed in close vicinity of the Police Headquarters establishes a transition between the ´XL´ scale of the front of the Nuselský bridge and surrounding blocks of flats.
