    Construction and Restoration Work

  • Realization:


The Baroque Ledebour Palace in Prague's Lesser Town is an important historical building, protected as a cultural monument of the Czech Republic. Since 1990 the Ledebour Palace has been the seat of the National Heritage Institute of the Czech Republic. A set of ongoing repair and restoration works is being carried out as a subcontract as part of the extensive reconstruction of the building.

Ledebour Palace is a structurally complex building. Its ground plan consists of five original Gothic houses rebuilt in Renaissance and Baroque style, with two courtyards.  The representative two-store façade of the palace facing Wallenstein Square is early classical, with baroque decoration. The centre of the façade is surmounted by a triangular frontispiece, on both sides of the central part are the entrance portals of two passages.

The grounds of Ledebour Palace also include terraced gardens rising towards Prague Castle, a significant part of which was restored by our company in 2018-2021.

The large scope of work currently being carried out includes both the exteriors of the palace and its interiors. This mainly includes the complete repair of the façade, restoration of stone elements, wooden elements, especially doors and windows, or metal elements, such as flagpoles, signboards or grilles. The interiors of Ledebour Palace are also undergoing gradual repairs. In view of the fact that the extensive repairs are being carried out under the full operation of the National Heritage Institute, the restoration work on the historic interiors of the palace is being carried out with great sensitivity.
