University of Life Science in Prague - Diploma thesis 2018-2019
LANDSCAPE STUDY OF REGENERATION OF THE VALEČ LANDSCAPE AND URBAN CHARACTER supervisor: Jan Hendrych, ASLA
In the master thesis, the selected area that was dealt with includes the village ‚Valeč‘ and the cadastral area called „Valeč v Čechách“, which is located on the eastern edge of the Karlovy Vary region below the Doupov Mountains. This area is part of the Landscape Heritage Zone, as a composed baroque landscape and the historical town itself. The result of the whole thesis is the assessment of the landscape and the urban area from various perspectives. Furthermore a proposal was created based on the processed analyzes, in various scales. This conceptual solution understands the territory as a whole in which the proposed interventions are a responsive and use an interconnected system of changes. The proposal mainly consists of better water management, restoration of landscape permeability and support of restoration of man-landscape relationship. Through adaptions in the country side, re-creation of landscape microstructure and the revitalization of public space in urban areas Valec is reconnected to its surrounding landscape. The proposal consists the design of changes in the landscape in a larger scale, as well as the intravilan - the solution of the village square in detail.

PROPOSAL OF NEW PARK IN TURNOV “ABOVE THE GREEN PATH” supervisor: Ing. arch. Vratislav Danda
The aim of this school project was to design a park for the town of Turnov in connection with the planned construction of a new district and thus meet the needs of residents after recreation. The new park “Above the green path” is the link between the intensive city park and the extensive landscape park. It is not only for visitors and residents looking for passive or active recreation, but its personal character invites residents of the neighborhoods to strengthen neighborly relations and traditions and its playfulness welcomes all children. The park has an elongated shape from north to south and in the northern part of the extended area is the highest point. Throughout the space stretches the main road to which the individual elements of the park bind. The main elements of interest are the oversized wooden chair, bed and bell tower. The central center of the park is a hill with a bell tower in the middle of a landscape square of cherry and flowery meadows. These elements are then followed by, for example, a fireplace with a spiral seating. Interesting stops are also three game corners of beech, birch and oak grove, each with a different game program. “Echoes of mountains and crossroads of landscapes”

PROPOSAL OF THE GARDEN NBY NEW FAMILY HOUSE IN HÝSKOV proposal of house Ing. arch. Pavel Palcát
collaboration on garden proposal with Ing. Lucie Medková, Ph.D.
The main theme of the garden is the horizontality of the lines that pass from the surrounding landscape (boundaries, paths with alleys, settlements and morphology of the original rural buildings) to the garden in the form of stone walls oriented along the horizon. Dry limestone walls divide the garden not only vertically (creating partial flat terraces and emphasizing the slope of the land), but also horizontally (spatially defining the garden “rooms”). The garden can be divided into eight parts or compositional units, which have their specific character and use and thus create outdoor “rooms”. The northern front garden is a “garden hall” communicating both with the public space of the street and with
its own private part of the garden and the house. West of the house is a garden composed primarily for views from the interior of the house, where it creates a “garden picture on the wall”. The house is physically connected to the garden by two residential terraces connected to the living space on the ground floor, which offers “distant views and flowers by the nose”. To the east they are connected by a kitchen garden with cultivated areas and technical background of the garden, southwest fruit garden and “hidden place”. In the eastern part of the garden there is a flat open grassy area of a sports field with related children’s play elements partly hidden in the “children’s jungle”.

PROPOSAL OF REVITALIZATION OF THE COURTYARD IN NYMBURK “THE HIDDEN GARDEN”
collaboration with Ing. arch. Lucie Pavlištíková, Ing arch. Kristian Holan
The study idea of semi-public area in Nymburk was based on two ways principles: spatial arrangement and program. 1. The terrain fault is the main fault divide the plots, which is supported by the orchard from the berry tree at its edge. Space up thereby dividing the garden and open space to any transformation during city events Nymburk. 2. The south wall offers great sunshine for flower beds not only for the inhabitants municipal house. 3. The background is directly at the facade of the house, where is the most shade and is close to the entrance and windows. We recommend that you keep all of this passable for the public at least in daytime hours. The reason is ours professional view the fact that Nymburk would hereby lost the opportunity to offer his a unique space for citizens, which is different in the center private.
a) everyday functions and use of the courtyard by citizens of the main house b) reacreation for the visitors and citizens of the Nymburk, occasional events c) continuity with the historic character of the town core

PROPOSAL OF NATURAL ZONE AROUND WATER STREAM IN TMAŇ collaboration with Ing. arch. Eliška Stoulilová, Ing. arch. Tereza Šimečková
We complete the area around the Tmaň stream, which we return to nature, by a circular path consisting of wooden walkways and small stops. Stops can be in the form of bird and other animals or plants around the stream and pools, benches overlooking the surrounding countryside. The new greenery, which consist of strips of orchards, gardens and permanent grasslands cut at another time, are complemented by line greens and thus create a varied mosaic of native species, which is lacking in the surroundings of the village. To maintain water in the landscape, we suggest renaturation of the watercourse flowing from the pond. The opening of the riverbed and the creation of several pools that will be flowable through the ground water, and the addition of space by species-scattered greenery.
Furthermore, the entire space is complemented by several natural children’s play elements located throughout the area and workout elements that are suitable for seniors. Community gardens can be used, for example, by a school, a retirement home, and also by a group of active village people who do not have their own garden. Likewise, some orchards may be owned by municipalities or private individuals, or use the method of tree care fro example adoption of individual trees. The whole space is formed in close connection with natural processes and sensitivity to the surrounding landscape. The proposal addresses all generations of residents who will use the space and encourage them to meet and take care of it together.
