“The interior of the Palác was designed to realize the concepts of a generational space and an independent cultural center.”
František Skála, author of Palác Akropolis art concept.
The façade of Palác Akropolis mixes the original layout from the 20th century with modern colours and magical eye. The interiors of Palác Akropolis connects the past with the present and offers us visions of the future.
When you first enter the hall, your sight is caught by eccentric metal work of the cloakroom. This is a reocurring feature that decorates the quite miscellaneous interior design of Palác Akropolis. The cloakroom has two sections, one on the left and one on the right. The cloakroom on the left features shadow play that rotates on top of the column. The left cloakroom also serves as a cafe-garden in the summertime. The cloakroom on the right features a bar that resembles a locomotive. Lamps with natural shapes grow up from the metal desks and on the walls you can find a natural world painted in great detail. If you look up, you will notice raindrops caught in a web that hang from the ceiling serving as chandeliers.
is wholly tiled with cork and engravings from the real and fantasy world by František Skála. Engravings on the bar, mirrors, showcase, walls, shelves and cabinets are illuminated by rounded lights set in the cork. Lamps as flowers are suspended over the bar where you can buy not only tickets but also t-shits, books and other items.
serves also as a showcase.
is decorated both with religious and symbolic elements. Huge polypores are used as lampshades as in the whole Akropolis. You can find various sculptures in the niches and spiral staircases. Such as “modern Charon” – a car transporting the dead to the other side or female and male attributes as wells as an interpretation of the origin of life. You can also admire sculptures depicting the individual types of art or a sculpture of flock of swallows on the ceiling representing the freedom of art. From a balcony you can see a scene a God´s hand handing over a ”gift” – a wallet full of talents.
is decorated with golden and copper components. It provides an exceptional technological background – there is a cabin for a DJ or a soundman. It is perfect for smaller events and concerts. Visitors are able to be in the centre of the event or in the calm environment of the lightly equipped zone next to the bar. There are the same pictures on the floor of the small scene as in the foyer and palace halls. The Small scene is directly connected with the Great hall.
allows you to rest under the antique columns and sit under the peace pipe hanging over the bar. The room is tiled with wood and the natural materials and shapes join components from the trolleybus and other metal items. The Theatre bar offers a “chamber separée” in the corner with private atmosphere similar to a confessional. In the hall leading to the theatre bar, there is another bar “u hada” (at snakes) whose long body coils on the floor.
designed by František Skála and David Vávra. It has a surrealistic atmosphere and combines the style of American diner rooms, art deco and the Czech 50th century. You may admire Skála micro-worlds of deserts, other planets and animals that were exhibited on Expo 92.
