Decorated transformer station on the waterfront

Pražská energetika, a.s.

Electricity distribution facilities are all around us. They are essential to ensure the electricity supply, but we often do not notice them. Such a colourfully painted substation, however, does not escape the attention of passers-by. Since 2011, the revitalisation of damaged substations owned by Pražská Energetika has been done in this unconventional form. The company provides these substations as a ‘canvas’ to street artists within their ‘Do It Your Way’ project. Their work has gradually revived more than sixty substations in Prague. A survey reported that 97 % of residents recommend continuing this trend. This particular decorated substation is located on the waterfront in Prague 5 - Smíchov. The photo was taken for the PRE Group's 2017 annual report.
