The Culture minister has rejected an appeal by the investor behind the ‘Marshmallow’.

The six storey apartment building earned its nickname – Marshmallow – due to its white and pink coloured façade, round edges and considerable bulk. Despite the fact that the building should be located behind the walls of the Saint Agnes Convent, which was declared a national cultural monument, the Prague Heritage Association gave the project the green light.

The building project will now have to receive a new assessment from the city and gain approval from heritage site conservationists.

The Marshmallow project dates back to 1997, when Italian investor Augusto Razzetto bought a building plot next to the convent. The remaining plots of land, on which the house should be built, are owned by the City of Prague.
