Main Point Karlin Office Building

Photobucket Photobucket Main Point Karlin has received appreciation for its distinctive sustainable architecture and high technological level. The building uses a number of approaches in its sustainable design, among them, use of the River Vltava’s water throughout the summer for building cooling, eliminating the need for compressors and chillers; cooling is further naturally regulated by the coloured fibreC elements on the facade which are not only aesthetic but serve to reduce heat gains from sunlight penetration.
