LANDSCAPE Site: 7 queries around the city Jicin, Czech Republic
A query composition continues in two baroque landscape interventions. The first one was made by Albrecht z Valdstejna who built the city Jicin, castle and cloisters on the specific points of a cross shape. The other one was the House of Sliks who made more modest landscape formation - 4 chapels, a castle and a church which create another cross. My layer revitalizes places deformed by a man activity - queries. I chose 7 which I classified according to the verticality. The most vertical query has a spiritual function and the most horizontal-one a social function. Another level of the diploma rethinks a relationship of a modern man and a countryside. Programme of each of the queries helps to renew a connection between a man and his landscape in 7 steps.

MARKET PLACE Site: Prague, Czech Republic
A public marketplace is a strategy for space activation in between blocks of flats. The project is going to be built in three phases. There are two types of stalls merged into circles. A skeleton is made of steel profiles and filled with insulated waterproof plywood.
SINGLE FAMILY HOUSE Site: Radotin, Prague, Czech Republic
A four-member family wanted to use the spare garden for building a simple one storey house. The simple task included lots of requirements. Apart from the usual rooms, the house includes a sauna, a pool or a yoga roof gym.
HIGH SCHOOL FOYER Sites: Hejcin, Olomouc, Czech Republic
A foyer renovation. Creating a representative and at the same time playful space for the Hejcin High School.
LAUBE HOUSE Sites: Teplice, Czech Republic
A renovation of a villa from the 19th century. The project was located in a historical part of a spa city Teplice. All exterior parts were designed in a historical style and the interior was made in a modern way. We worked on all stages of a design process - from the very first drawing up to physical finishing the interior (including making up beds).

TECHNICAL DRAWINGS Sites: Prague, Teplice, Czech Republic
An indelible part of each design process is technical drawing. Each architect should have general knowledge about every stage of the building process. The next two pages show a sample of projects I was working on in the studio Monarchi architects. We measured and drew details for an old windows renovation. The other project shows construction interior drawings for old villa renovation.
Office building HIGH TECH Sites: Dolni Brezany, Prague, Teplice, Czech Republic
A three storey polygonal building with laboratories and offices is currently under construction.
REST STATION COMPETITION Site: Janske lazne, Czech Republic
A small spa town in the Great mountains did not have any place to hide from the changeable weather. We designed a small information centre with a lounge area and a washroom for tourists and people waiting for buses.
PUBLIC SPACE COMPETITION Site: Cerveny Kostelec, Czech Republic
The town Cerveny Kostelec is located in the Eastern Bohemia. The competition was organized to find a solution for lack of public spaces. Nearby there is the main square which mainly works as a traffic crossroad. The solved area offers no car zone among two schools, a post office and a town council. We highlighted the most frequent routes by using path and grass stripes and chose local materials such as red sandstone.
ICELAND TREKKING CABIN Site: somewhere in Iceland
DIY INTERIOR Site: Brno, Czech Republic
Furnished a new home in a low-cost style for a recently married couple. The interior is a collage of old reused furniture and Ikea items. Chosen pieces express their personalities and combine male and female elements.
FLOWER STORE Site: Brno, Czech Republic
INTERIORS Czech Republic
Furthermore, I would like to present several proposals for several young families. The design is always a dialogue between the architect and the client. It works as a mixture of a male and a female element. I like when space is kept simple but cozy. I often use natural materials. During each of design processes, I cooperated with local furniture companies and local cabinetmakers.
CZECH FAST FOOD Site: New Haven, school project, University of Brighton
Czech fast food was built on the beach from flotsam wood. A design process went through several steps. - Daytripping - Analysis of a site - Switching site with another person - Exploring a new place - Creating a programme -
BEER SPA Site: Lewes, school project, University of Brighton
We wrote a short story which defined a site and programme specification. We planted different kinds of trees in a grid system over the whole town Lewes. According to the quotation: “Two things only the people anxiously desire — bread and circuses.” I designed a beer vertical spa opposite the Lewes brewery.
CUBES IN MOTION Site: Tilburg, Netherlands
The project Cubes in motion comes from the Fontys school of performing arts. I used parametric techniques to design a swimming lounge and a petrol station. The parameters came from a motion of a human body.
LABORA(R)TORY Site: Brno, Czech Republic
A final bachelor project at Faculty of architecture, Brno University of Technology. Labora(r)tory is a place for art and architecture in the City of Brno. A crucial question was: ´´How to present contemporary architecture?´´ The answer was found in a concept of London´s Serpentine Gallery. The best way to present architecture is to exhibit it as 1:1 scale models. People can experience spatial objects in a real time. That was my solution for the site. I decided not to build a solid object but leave a space underneath for temporary 1:1 architectural models.
