Embassy of Czechoslovakia, East Berlin (today: Embassy of the Czech Republic)

The structure of the building is of monolithic concrete with exposed expessive elements. Notable in particular is a high concrete grille above the first floor halls, which protrudes into the exterior arrangement. These expressive horizontal arrangements were typically used by the architects in the 1960’s, however the materials used in this building were different opposed to their other projects – Liberec granite and glass. Despite that the embassy creates probably the most austere impression of all the Machonins’ implemented buildings and is the most sharp edged. The interior, including the original furniture, was designed with regard for each specific space and the purpose for which it was intended.
