Designed by A1 Architects, the Onyx Moon Loft is located in the district of Malá Strana on Prague’s Kampa Island. Marrying Japanese minimalism with luxurious European textures and fabrics, the elegant apartment is bright and airy, with a large window in the living room that frames views of the Prague Castle and the streets of Malá Strana.

We believe that every house, and every apartment deserves unique details, and special even very small places like niches for flowers just to enjoy the moment. These details are supposed to be tailor made just for you, the dweller. Here in Kampa there are great motives, it is with no doubts the great castle view, and your passion for onyx.

Our challenge is to emphasize both, and let them make your life wonderful. So we came up with the idea of onyx moon inbuilt in your bedroom, where it could shines within the evening western light… The stone is the symbol of calm and eternity which is in a great harmonical contrast with lively panorama of the river and the castle. “The view is the day-the activity, and the onyx is the evening- the calm, when the sun comes down…” Next to those main motives we tried to purify and simplify all the disposition of the apartment, the connections, view axis, openings and inbuilt furniture to make them useful and also beautiful!

The Havai House turns itself to the inside, in a way it is introspective, a feature that comes from the place's specific constraints - the linear conformation of the lot, 5x35m, and its neighbour's tall lateral walls.
