Modular Cafeteria in Vizovice, Czech Republic by Chybik+Kristof Associated Architects

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Article source: Chybik+Kristof Associated Architects

Few young architects under the age of 30 can boast of two completed commissions in their portfolios like Ondrej Chybik and Michal Kristof, the founders of Chybik+Kristof Associated Architects. Their first commission – a modular cafeteria for KOMA MODULAR in Vizovice – was completed in May 2014; the second­­ – the Czech pavilion at EXPO 2015 in Milan – was inaugurated exactly a year later. Both designs draw on the simplicity of modernist architecture, creating dynamic spaces of high aesthetic value. Their buildings are innovative in terms of the introduction of new materials and their combinations into modular construction. While the Czech EXPO pavilion expectedly attracts media attention, it is rarely mentioned that it could never have been so successfully achieved without Chybik+Kristof AA’s previous experience with modular systems at Vizovice.

Vltava waterway in Czech Republic by ATELIER 8000

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: ATELIER 8000 

In the Czech Republic, the current trend is revitalizing embankments, bringing water and streams back to the fabric of cities under the motto ´River back to the People´. The project “Making the Vltava waterway navigable” thus played its role in initiating this effort; it supports and introduces life back to the water sheet and its surroundings – this is the natural associate part of the project.

Wine Cellar “U Modráka” in Moravia, Czech Republic by ORA (Original Regional Architecture)

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Article source: ORA (Original Regional Architecture) 

The refurbishment of the wine cellar in Vrbovec was our first project. The builder is a wine grower and father of Barbora.
Final design is based on the sketch of the investor who was completely sure how the wine cellar should look like. We designed a new entrance hall with a small kitchen and toilet in the area where the old cabin used to be. We cleaned more than hundred years old underground part and kept it in its original state. The biggest change is new three meters wide skylight which brings sunlight down to the cellar. We recycled old vineyard posts (very similar was used on the borders with Austria during the Iron Curtain time) to build a new archive for bottles. The archive remains the vineyard.

Vodafone CEC in Prague, Czech Republic by IO Studio

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Article source: IO Studio

The interior design of the Customer Experience Center was created for the product presentation purposes to the Vodafone clients. The created platform allows the company’s clients to get a personalised and tailored tour which reflects their individual needs and provides them with a ‘know how’ portfolio of the telecomunication technology and services. The showroom area has a familiar feel but yet boasts the most advanced technologies which presents to customer wide range of services and products. This arrangement of space which leads into the customer’s tour firstly brings a relaxation zone from where the individual is intuitively lured pass the „organic walls“ towards the entrance welcome zone. The main part of the presentation occurs at the central – „Onenet“ object which leads from the back section via a narrow corridor and offer to every customer slow transition between the real world and the reality created by Vodafone. From there customers continue to another two, separated and differently shaped, parts where the tour comes to an end.

Artefakt in Kyje – Structural Thin-bole Construction in Czech Republic by Martin Rajniš

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš

The history behind the emergence of this modest structure is highly unusual. We received a commission for a tower from the Prague 14 district government in an extensive future park. For it, we prepared three designs: one was a completely unusual construction from young logs, with which we had no previous experience, yet on the land in Horní Maxov, where our second atelier is located, there were several kilometres of them, and so we were naturally attracted to the idea of trying something with them out of pure interest in the penetration of nature into construction systems. To our great joy, but also our great surprise, precisely this tower was selected by Prague 14 for realisation. We said that first of all we needed to test this kind of structure, and so we created this artefakt. The word “artefakt” was used by us to keep it apart from the idea of a building. It is not a building, just a pure attempt, in which it was all about trying what this construction could do. Some might say that it looks a bit like a woman’s behind. A distant similarity could be seen. Yet the actual sense of the matter was to try out in all senses what a structure from young ash and maple logs could look like, how it could be put together, what structural qualities it has. It’s a preparation for the construction of the tower.

Bára I and Bára II in Czech Republic by Martin Rajniš

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš

The history of the tower Bára has got all atributes of a dramatic story. Town council of Chrudim decided to build an out-look tower in the forest boundary, where the landscape provides beautiful panoramic view of the surroundings. An architectonic contest was made and as the winning project was marked the one by Martin Martin Rajniš from e-Mrak team. An out-look tower in the shape of truncated triangular pyramid, made out of larch planks with minimum number of fixed joints, secured by metal tow bars. Acces to the view platform is provided by circular oak stair, which is fixed on the convulated steel pole rod in the middle of the tower. Upon the view platform is placed a mast made of steel tubes with flashlight on the top. Out-look Bára was festively opened for public on the 21st of June 2008. Unfortunately, a massive storms, with a power of tornado in some locations, swept across the Czech republic just four days later. One of them appeared at the region of Chrudim and caused irrecoverable damage to the new-built out-look. Whirlwind left nothing but a mass of wreckage a few meters from the place were original out-look bas placed. However, citizens of Chrudim did not give up and the decision to build a new one was made almost immediately. On the 3rd of September 2009 was the new tower – Bára II opened. This new out-look is pretty much the same as the previous one was. It is just slightly lower and built in a way to resist the wind with power of a cyclone (approximately 200 kms per hour, in contrast to the previous one, which was able to resist only 130 kms per hour). Bára II has also got more security components, including steel cables with tension varying each thirty minutes according to air moisture. View from the platform is usualy the most interesting feature of the out-look, but Bara II has much more to offer. For visitors with interest in technics has to be pleasure to see the unique construction with number of simple, but clever details. Those, who are more into philosophy could use the wall of the tower as a source of meditation. Variation of horizontal wooden lines and gaps between them makes really delightful view. The structure reminds of water clarification and makes interferential optical effect, which is well known for its sedative action.
