Project overview
The means of expression used in the reconstruction refer to the morphology and materials of Holešovice. The building respects the historical context of the district and its particular characteristics and honours the local industrial aesthetic of Holešovice, frequently composed of raw bricks. Although the building is significant, its expression was achieved via humble means – using only the traditional local motifs. The original building was stripped to the core; only the necessary load-bearing constructions were left, exposing the beautiful structural skeleton. The beauty of civil engineering constructions lies in their sincerity and honesty. Therefore we honor the size of building modules, the rhythm of the structure. We work with motifs which elevate a common building and make it noble, as befits a town hall.
