The area of construction of the housing estate and administrative centre Vinice Palouk is defined by a triangle of streets Vinohradska, Na Palouku and Pocernicka. This area has always been reserved in the Master plan of Prague as a local town centre of Prague 10 district. Southern part (buildings I, J, K) has a role of a gateway of the complex where shops and offices are placed along the Vinohradska boulevard. The corner building K (a headquarter of a bank Českomoravská stavební spořitelna, a.s.) is built on a ground plan in the shape of an ellipse, whose longitudinal axis is parallel to the Starostrašnická street. Oskar Centrum (building J) is a mixed-use building with an internal square and covered passages. Two 22-storey residential towers (buildings I1 and I2) have became a high-rise landmark of the whole complex. Northern part of the complex is created by apartment houses which are interconnected with terraces. Passages throughout the buildings allow free movement of pedestrians. A quiet square is situated in the centre of the northern part.
