courtyard The proposal is based on simplicity, comunication between spaces of old and new buildings and maintainin maximum green space of the site. The extension completes traditional symetrical U shape and the volume of gyms balances the vol ume of the school club on the site. Gyms and the conference room have their own access and there is entrance from the outdoor playground too. Gyms and the conference room can function independently. The entrance hall is pos sible to divide by movable partitions, which separates the dance hall and conference room from the secong gym. If necessary, there may be two different actions at once without disturbing one another. The simplicity and compactness are used in appearence of the building too. The ar chitectural style of the extention is not trying to look like the original building, but to complete it harmonically in a modern style. The proposal works with the latest trends and technologies and of course with materials and design principles that reduce en ergy consumption. Wood, glass or concrete can be recycled , they are locally available and also visually attractive. Double skin facade of gyms is composed of wooden and laminate panels and helps ventilate and heat the space. The transparent laminate al lows the wood to be seen also from exterior. Except new buidings the proposal demands little changes in the old building as well. They were made with attention to create clear organisation of spaces, easy orientation and movement for handicaped children. 8

Under hubcaps - Casablancaâ€™s sustainable market square VHSWHPEHUMDQXDU\ Casablanca , Morroco The task was to create a proposal for space of the market square which will serve as a comunity center during nights and evenings.
The site lies in the center of Casablanca with a direct connection to the famous mosque of Hassan II. It is surrounded by a modern city on western side and by an old residential quater form eastern side. The proposal combines tradition and technique WRJHWKHU:KROHVSDFHRIWKHPDUNHWVTXDUHLVFRYHUHGE\DPHPEUDQHURRÂżQJZKLFK shape derives from shape of hubcaps of tajine pots.

The site for the funeral hall lies at the end of town Roudnice nad Labem next to an old jewish cemetery and a current grave yard. The concept is based on contrasts and live cycle. The main inspiration derives from a cycle of life. Every path on the site is con nected to the other, there is also a direct way to the graveyard in case the ceremony will contain the burrial. Columns leading to the hall symbolize our guides through life, our parrents, friends who we give our last farewell. In the hall they leave us through gate to their own path and we go back to our lives. The constrast of black and white color symbolize the clarity and materia of life and the dark secrets of afterlife. The hall is designed with attention to moaners. The back light from the large window makes faces of moaners a bit less visible for a speaker which helps to concentrate on his grief and talking, he sees the way back to the life as well. Skylights provide diffuse light. For the overall appearance of the building were used archetypes to create a monumental and appropriate building for the last farewell to our beloved.

Since then, I have learnt that the quality of architecture, design and urban planning, is not made only by personal creativity and I hope I can make part of the team now. Every day I try to improve my skills and try to open my mind to new ideas, learn other information and improve myself in all aspects. I like the modern elegant and timeless design of houses which your design studio produce, I think that there is seen strong connection to a client and site and that is also the way I would love to design. IÂ´m young with few experience, but also a quick learner and I am willing to work KDUGIRUWKHVWXGLR,DPFUHDWLYHĂ€H[LEOHDQGKLJKO\PRWLYDWHGWRZRUNLQ architecture. It is not just a job to me, during all these years it became a part of me. I donÂ´t have high expectations for the job position or paycheck. I understand that everything has to be learnt from basics, therefore I donÂ´t expect to be team leader right away, but I would like to become one in few years. For now, I would be VDWLVÂżHGWRSDUWLFLSDWHLQDQ\SDUWRIDGHVLJQSURFHVV7KHUHDVRQZK\,FKRVH*UHDW Britain as a starting point is that there is large mixture of cultures, including the English one, from which I can extract my inspiration and I would like to improve my English to use it in practice of architecture and to understand all technical vocabulary.
