Laptops for Ukraine

We are part of the Laptops for Ukraine project. The aim is to collect discarded laptops, tablets and smartphones that companies no longer have a use for.

Renovations on Branická in full swing

During the summer we worked intensively on the interior and exterior of the building in Branick├í. The roof and plaster needed to be repaired.

And we weren't alone - Branick├í Street also received a new surface, including planted trees. A beautiful little square has grown up around the Periferie Caf├ę :)

Cooperation with architect Ond┼Öej Tu─Źek

Our great thanks go to architect Ond┼Öej Tu─Źek, who helped us to obtain valuable information about the history of the building in Branick├í, so that we could continue the tradition and keep the original style of the building, known as "Na Kov├írn─Ť v Bran├şku", and remove the unpleasant colour and other alterations from the past.

So, shall we forge it together?
