Eva Jiřičná is known for her use of glass and steel, skilful light schemes and innovative use of materials. Her clean and straightforward aesthetic informs the character of the entire building. A highlight of Jiřičná’s vision are the bathrooms, which are either consistently glass-open to the bedroom or elegantly and discretely clad in limestone. The Hotel Josef stand-out architectural feature is its brilliant glass and steel staircase.
Hotel Josef is often marked as an architectural child of Mrs. Jiřičná. From the building structure itself to the slightest details in the room equipment and marvellous hotel lobby, she is the moving force that brought all aspects together into unique and marvellous property.
Design is part of the DNA of Hotel Josef so much so that it is the only Prague member of the curated Design Hotels™ community. The organisation brings together over 300 hotels in 50 countries, whose member hotels members are privately held and run by hoteliers with a passion for hospitality and visionary design.
