The complex with headquarters of the Czech National Bank consists of two buildings – the historic listed Roith Building and the building of the former Plodinová burza (Agricultural Products Exchange). The aim of the reconstruction project was to combine the two adjoining buildings into one functional whole. The CNB complex is situated in an area of Prague area that has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Both of the buildings are also on the list of protected heritage buildings and conservation areas in the Czech Republic. The Roith Building, which bears the name of its original architect František Roith, has been used as a bank ever since its completion. In the basement of the building there is a historic safe deposit room that is now a bank museum, as well as the present new safe deposit rooms of the CNB. The above-ground levels of the building include the administration and offices of this Czech central banking institution. The ground floor of the Roith Building is divided into two sections by a passage lined with retail units which is accessible to the public. The building is connected to the adjoining building of the former Plodinová burza. The building also houses the offices of the governor of the CNB and the members of the CNB Bank Council and their advisors. Special attention was paid to the interior design of the rooms intended for use for meetings of the CNB Bank Council.
