Residential complex in Ostrava

2018 – Ostrava, Czech Republic

How to unify with a single architecture a mix of completely different buildings with varying story heights and styles? This was main question we had to answer while working on this concept.Taking inspiration from the Old Ostrava Town hall an arched portico is the most recognizable feature of the new building. The arcade is the element that keeps together all the composition. It allows for the building to jump over the existing sewage collector and it provides shops with a cosy buffer space which will make customers fill at ease.The result is a building perfectly integrated into its context, meant to became one of Ostrava’s landmarks.
