The coal mill (Úhelný mlýn) building dates back to the 1930's. Coal mills have always been a stamp of the engineering industry. We can see how they're still present in evolving technology, like in the boiler room (Kotelna).
Both buildings were built from bricks from the local Fischer brothers construction company, burnt from locally mined clay and are interconnected with the now inoperable underground shaft, which used to transport coal dust.
With technological advancements, the previous use for the Úhelný mlýn was lost and it was retired from use and transformed into an storage building for office supplies. The fate of Úhelný mlýn was indefinitely sealed after the floods in 2002. The new age and revival of the building came when projects for its renovation came in 2010.
The abandoned coal mill building was discovered and purchased by architect Patrik Hoffman. It was repaired and funded with the help of an EU regional grant and in 2013 the successful restoration of Uhelný Mlýn was awarded with the Grand Prix of Architects and the Industrial Building Reconstruction Award in the central Bohemian Building of the Year competition. Industrial architecture is gradually coming back in style, with multiple similar projects coming to life each year. Today, Úhelný mlýn is an inspiration to all lovers of design, architecture, art and the slow lifestyle. In the former coal mill, you will now find a showroom of GUBI Danish furniture and the contemporary art gallery Arto.to. From autumn 2017, the attractive event space Kotelna has been operating alongside Úhelný mlýn with a fully functional premises available for event bookings of all kinds.
