Brick House in Brick Garden in PRUŠÁNKY, CZECH REPUBLIC by Jan Proksa

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

Article source: Jan Proksa

Traditional villages in the Southern Moravia region of the Czech Republic are characterized by their distinctive urban planning. The streets are lined with L-shaped row houses neighbouring each other on narrow rectangular plots, each with its own long and narrow backyard. A single multi-generational family home typically consists of three parts: the street-facing house inhabited by parents with their children, a home for the grandparents bordering on a courtyard, and the remaining lot to the rear of the property which was traditionally used for small-scale farming. In general, the front-facing houses are more spacious and feature more elaborate construction techniques. The façade, for example, the house’s public presentation to the neighbourhood, is plastered and coloured in light natural tones. The rear buildings, however, typically remain unplastered, as such a solution was an unnecessary expense. The use of exposed brick architecture for the rear buildings was a simple, durable, and cost-effective solution which nonetheless radiated familiarity and warmth.

Article source: mar.s architects 

Wine Glass Shop RIEDEL is located in the very center of Prague, Na Příkopě street. The shop has excellent RIEDEL wine glass in its range of products. The task was to create an environment that will excel in the purity and beauty of the glass. Therefore, the materials are used in their original form, i.e. coarse and “imperfect”, which are in contrast to the perfect glass. Wall covering is made of oak wood, the niches with exposed glass are made of natural black sheet, the floor is concrete. The entire interior is complemented by a wall made of steel pins, where selected wines are placed and the entire space is dominated by a steel wall with a built-in wines. The area is illuminated by industrial lights that enhance the atmosphere. The shop is very often used for wine tasting.

Dock House in Prague, Czech Republic by mar.s architects

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: mar.s architects 

From the original “boat” interior we only kept wooden ceiling and beams and gave the floors new coat of paint. The oak furniture wooden elements stand out thanks to monochrome interior, including the gemstone of the restaurant – Dry Ager – where the meat matures. The only colour elements that lit up the whole area are gold insides of the pendant lamps. The front wall is decorated with original graphic by Jakub Šejvl that refers to the origins of steaks.

Showroom And Offices For Furniture Company in Brno-Vinohrady, Czech Republic by Chybik+Kristof Architects & Urban Designers

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Article source: Chybik+Kristof Architects & Urban Designers 

The transformation of a former car show room on the outskirts of a housing estate into a site of the MY DVA group, focusing on the production of office, school and metal furniture, represents another finished structure of the young architecture firm CHYBIK + KRISTOF Architects & Urban Designers from Brno. The single-storey building of a poor aesthetic quality turned into a building with a new, easily remembered façade composed of more than 900 black plastic seats. The façade is conceived abstractly, functioning also as a banner advert for the firm itself. After finishing a simple refurbishment of its interior, a new flexible showroom was created presenting the individual segments of the firm´s production in specific, thematically arranged settings.

Tony Adam’s Barbershop in Prague, Czech Republic by OOOOX

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Article source: OOOOX 

Concept/colour scheme/materials – the aim is to create a manly interior, both with the colour scheme and the materials. Static modifications have already been implemented in the current space. Massive steel transoms were the right element for an ideal manly industrial. The position of these load-bearing elements defined the whole layout of the space. The steel elements have been supplemented with natural oak furniture, combed plaster and retro tiles.

Community Centre Máj in České Budějovice, Czech Republic by SLLA Architects

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Article source: SLLA Architects 

The community centre Máj is located in the biggest 1980s mass-housing settlement in České Budějovice, an ethnically and socially mixed neighbourhood. In the Czech Republic, one third of the population lives in prefab panel settlements built during the socialism era; after 1989 (the fall of the Soviet bloc), there has been a lack of activities solving problems in these areas. The Máj settlement has an increased concentration of the Roma population, who were evicted into the settlement during the 80s and 90s; the district has been the site of tension and several riots.
