Clementinum, Prague - Old Town, Czech Republic

 The baroque complex of Clementinum, which houses the National Library of the Czech Republic, is at present undergoing extensive reconstruction and renovation. The work commenced in 2010 and is due for completion in 2016. This national cultural monument is the second largest historic set of buildings in Prague (after Prague Castle), and its site covers an area of almost 5 acres. The company GEMA ART GROUP a.s. participated in the project as a subcontractor of restoration work in the areas of the Mirror Chapel and the Baroque Library Hall. These rooms, built in the 1720s and believed to be the work of the architects K.I. Dientzehofer and F.M. Kaňka, are the most beautiful areas of the Clementinum. They are richly ornamented with stuccoes, valuable wall paintings with religious motifs and marble cladding divided into panels by double pilasters and finished with intricately carved ledges. Guided tours of these premises are a popular tourist attraction.
GEMA ART GROUP a.s. was responsible for the restoration of artificial marbles and metal elements. This was not a particularly extensive commission but was nevertheless highly valued by the company due to the overall historic and artistic importance of this far-reaching renovation of the National Library of the Czech Republic building.

Church of the Virgin Mary Na Náměti, Kutná Hora, Czech Republic

The aim of the project is the preservation of the exterior of the tower of the Church of the Virgin Mary Na Náměti in Kutná Hora. The restoration work which has been on-going for over two years under the management of the company GEMA ART GROUP a.s. had been divided into several stages. At present, the last of the stages currently under way has been completed. As a result, the stone outer casing and the stone bas-reliefs on the west-facing façade, both of which were in a critical state, have been renovated. The bas-reliefs would not have survived without the intervention of the restorers. The technically demanding tasks involved the renovation of four clock faces, each almost two meters in diameter, and the brass gongs of the church clock, which had to be dismantled and transported to a workshop. The shutters of the tower windows did not function properly as the pulley mechanisms were damaged. A significant proportion of the slats was damaged and many were missing. All these faults were remedied. Project was finished during October 2011.
