Josef Wiedermann, Managing Director of UBM Czechia explained: “We were honoured to renovate and change face of this charming historic building. The building is a cultural monument and our designers worked with great delicacy there. We closely cooperated with the representatives of the care of historical monuments and did not miss even the smallest details. We conserved for instance the original windows, doors, stucco decoration or fireplaces. During the reconstruction we fully accomplished UBM´s motto “green, smart and more” with the emphasis on environmental and sustainability elements. We are pleased that with the reconstruction of the Sugar Palace we helped to refresh not only the building itself but also the Senovážné square. We believe that this new design becomes more than a value for the tourists and it will enrich the image of Prague.”
