The London-based architecture and interior design studio drew inspiration from both the hotel’s immediate surroundings for its interior aesthetic as well as references to poetic Czech modernism prevalent in the area.

Maximilian’s refurbishment included the reconfiguration, and repurposing, of the ground floor to include a café/ bar, brasserie, library along with an event space and courtyard.
The hotel’s existing spa was also updated.
“By respecting the heritage of the original building and through an inspiring collaboration with Conran and Partners, we have created a chic, contemporary urban dwelling that brings together the best of Czech tradition, culture and design with brasserie-style food.” Says Rudolph Ploberger, co-owner of Maximilian.
“The new design will allow us to focus on the needs of our guests to ensure that they experience a truly memorable time while in Prague.”
