A dilapidated two-storey house given back to its original owners after the Velvet revolution was sold to a new owner in the 90s. The present owners started demolishing the building and a new modern office building was erected in this space in 1998. Not only with its name is Černá labuť (Black swan) in contrasts with its neighbour building – Bílá Labuť (White swan), a department store.

Sipral took part in this project with a supply of a bond cladding of the upper ledge and lateral sides of the roof penthouse where an art café offers an exceptional panoramic view over Prague thanks to its all-glazed facade.
