“SEMILY island” location: year: team:


Semily, Czech Republic 2014 Jan Barta, Pavel Kabicek, Aneta Zvakova

Historical development of the city caused that the city is fragmented. This can be mostly seen in the northern part of the city - where the contrast between city fragments and surrounding mountain hilly nature is the most significant. The task of the project is to complete city fragments with new housing districts and create “living landscape” that will link city fragment with surrounding nature.

WEST BRABANT 2030 location:


Netherlands, region West Brabant




Charlotte van den Bosch, Thomas Galetzka, Bert de Groot

Nowadays, region of West-Brabant is under the pressure of two remarkable harbours – Antwerp and Rotterdam. This leads to the fragmentation of the region and to the loss of identity. Other threats are future climatic changes that have already started. They will influence several networks, especially water system, in the region. First goal of project is crete vision for whole region. Task is to reverse current trends and create self-sufficient and sustainable region with its own identity supported by strong bio-based economy. For the implementation of vision, one of the key objectives is the proper future development of the central urban zone. If the current trend is not stopped, the region will be separate into three main parts - “North”, “South“ and “Central urban zone”. Second part of project is named “Variable corridor” and it demonstrate how the interconnection between Northern and Southern parts of region inside the Central urban zone can look like in the future.

VARIABLE CORIDOR - 2nd part of the project

1.Current state of region Nowadays, region of West-Brabant is under the pressure of two remarkable harbours – Antwerp and Rotterdam. This leads to the fragmentation of the region and to the loss of identity.

2.Current development of region If the current trend is not stopped, the region will be separate into three parts. “North” represented by open and often flooded agricultural land, “South“ represented by fragmentized dried land and “Central urban zone” between them.

3.Target area For the implementation of vision, one of the key objectives is the proper future development of the central urban zone. Project demonstrate how the interconnection between Northern and Southern parts of region can look like in the future.

Current state in zoom-in area The zoom-in areas is located between two large cities, Etten-Leur and Roosendal, connected by A58 and a railway. Northern part is open, claybased intensive agricultural land, instead south part is sand-based land with small-scaled agricultural parcels.

Expected future development In 2030, pursuant to the municipal structural visions, number of inhabitants will increase by approximately 4000. As a solution, 1200 housing units will be built on the borders of cities. Current trend of approximation of cities will be supported.

Alternative scenario - Green urbanized corridor The suggested intervention is to relocate new housing development to the area among cities, connected fragmentized pieces of forests and create green urbanized corridor. This will be an opportunity to arrange new sustainable forms of living inside the landscape.

Hierarchy of public facilities For the high quality of living, function of corridor is supported by hierarchy of public facilities. Approximation of cities which was firstly in “infinite growing scenario” one of the thus threats, is now taking as benefit.

Transport Transport system works according to the hierarchy of public facilities. Lower levels of urban zones have directly access to higher levels of urban zones. Reaching distance from urbanized corridor to the tertiary level is at maximum 15 minutes by bike.

Recreation Proposed future forms of recreation of area are characterized by fluent bike route structure (supported by walking and horseback routes) which connects diverse recreation spots. Attention is paid on the continuity and signage.

Agricultural production The balance between green urbanized areas and economically valuable agricultural zones needs to be found. Most potential products for the examined area are crops, dairy farming and tree nursery. Together they provide essential source for biomass production.

Residential plot Basic unit is a residential plot of land about the size of 3-5 hectares. You can develop house according to your intention and desire but the rule is that the 50% of plot has to be planted by trees.

Water management Proposed water system consists of two layers. First layer includes reservoirs on bigger scale around Mark River. Second layer includes small scaled water storages that strengthen the system and provides supplement of water for personal use.

Business plot Second unit is a business plot of land about the size of 10 hectares. The rules set are the same as above. You can develop business according to your intention. Owners are responsible for retention of rain water and energy production.

Units and new developments For each intervention basic rules are formulated. Each land owner is responsible for the contribution to the whole picture. The rule is the 50% of plot has to be planted by trees.

Integral picture At the end, residents, businessman, farmers, etc. will create an integrated and productive landscape. Together they will bring the ecological and sustainable values to the area.

“KADAŇ” lost suburb location:


Czech Republic, region Usti nad Labem


summer 2013


Barbora Havrlova, Matus Kabos

“Spitalske předmesti” was one of the oldest district of city Kadaň. It consisted of small living and business houses with market. In the middle of 20th century, redevelopment caused that today we can found only few houses here. According to the plan, the district should be filled with concrete prefabricated houses. This plan was not, fortunately, finished. Nowadays, the place is still empty and creates hole in city centre. The goal of the project is restore this old district and return here live again.

SPA ZBRASLAV location:

Czech republic, Zbraslav


winter 2012


In fifty years, the mining will end in Zbraslav quarry. Our research question is: what will be next? The space of quarry is divided into corridors which are filled with different programs. Together they are creating new city for the future. The combination of narrow, uniquely lighted rocky land and river water creates unforgettable experience. Bathing in a stone. Baths are designed as a complex of three vertically connected pools with a temperature about 28, 32 and 36 degrees. With decreasing light and height increases the temperature of the pools. The Baths are ideal place for whole year relaxation because of the heated water pumped from underground springs and Vltava river.

PRAGUE ARCHEOLOGY MUSEUM 02 graduation project location:

Czech Republic, Prague - Tesnov


zima 2011, lĂŠto 2012

Prague, Tesnov. Place at the interference, place next to the highway and historical building of Prague City Museum. The key objective of project is to design new museum building the building of Prague Argeology Museum, which creates ideal conditions for exhibitions, research and administration.

main building [5 floors] museum front space [1 floors] main entrance entrance for employees


old museum building proposed building



location and orientation of the site, important is the transport artery

creation of two basic levels - first is reachable directly from the street and second level represents main entrance to the building

volume of the building uses northern light in expositions, museum entrance is orientated on the south and it is separated from transport artery

integral concept of building - main volume and its front space as a public space

typical floor - statics

undground floor - statics

entrance floor - construction

The facade is designed as perforated cocrete wall. On the north side - the structure of holes create map of current archeologic sites. In contrary, southern facade displays historical archeologic sites.


APARTMENT HOUSE FLORENC 01 location: year:

Czech Republic, Prague - Florenc Praha winter 2010

The goal of the project is to design apartment house in Prague, near Masarykovo station. The site is divided into twelve parts (dimensions 24 metres x 24 metres) - in every part one apartment house is built. The apartment houses touch each other from two sides (as in a terraced houses) so light enters house only from two sides - north and south. This leads to basic concept of house - basic square (24x24) is extruded - than - volumes are cut out.
