Red Hill Rise, a mixed use building on top of a metro station, consists of offices and retail located along one of the major spine road connecting airport and historical city centre of Prague. Backdrop of the project is a dramatically steep slope (max. 14m height difference), the site being located in a tranquil residential area while required program is purely commercial and requires expressive architecture. Furthermore, there is a lack of sufficient public space in the neighborhood.

In scale with the neighbourhood, our proposal fits in with a general policy of creating closed blocks with buildings running continuously alongside the roads and featuring huge private central areas. The guidelines and recommendations thus fixed are clearly consistent with the idea of creating streets and lead to the conception of buildings which fit in with this project. This kind of urban development makes it possible to phase out the building work and the demolition work, both characteristic of this sort of project, in a coherent fashion.

The State Tretyakov Gallery is a museum that symbolizes Russian culture, conceived by its founder as an open institution accessible to the public, which “is useful for many and enjoyable for everyone.”
Following the philosophy established by P. M. Tretyakov of keeping pace with society, changing along with it and responding to its needs and demands, the State Tretyakov Gallery today is striving to become a “museum of a new type,” an interactive space where multiple communication links are established in order to unite the elements of the museum’s traditional conservatism and dynamism of development.

The centre of Edam dates from the 14th centuryis situated close to Amsterdam and next to the Ijsselmeer in the middle of the Netherlands. The canals are majestic, with elegant buildings and (cheese) warehouses. The architecture of this area is carefully and profoundly detailed. You can see this in the composition, materialization and lots of details.
