We handed over a unique observation tower to the Prague 14 district
At the end of June 2018, the much anticipated Doubravka observation tower was opened to the public in the Čihadla forest park, within sight of the Rajský vrch project. Our company is a proud investor in this unique project. On completion of the tower, was handed it over as a gift to the Prague 14 city district.
It´s the first public observation tower in the capital since 1992, when the Žižkov transmitter was completed. The name of the observation tower was chosen by its designer Prof. Martin Rajniš with his team at Huť architecture; he has imprinted on it a distinctive and original structure dominated by three massive legs .98 steps will lead up to the top of the tower with its viewing platform 20 metres up.
The hallmark of Huť architecture has been projected into the form of a triangular pyramid and into the material chosen. It is dominated by easily renewable but durable acacia wood (over 5.5 km of trunk-lengths), supplemented with elements made of oak, larch and steel. The main tower will reach up 23.5 metres thanks to the weather vane, the construction costs coming to 3 million crowns. The tower will be open all year round, free of charge.
The observation tower will be one of the icons of this city district, at the same time rendering the whole Čihadla site more attractive to the public.
