  • Reconstruction of the former faculty of science in the heart of Hejčín responds to tendencies toward its demolition. It is so, because it is between the most hated buildings in Olomouc. This approach of reconversion is unique. We use reorganisation of the components from the existing building. We show their wide flexibility for reconversion of prefabricated buildings. The design is based on analysis of the building structure and understanding of its unique elements. We try to preserve and support its qualities. We try to emphasise its history and expand the possibilities of its further use. We designed the existing building into a freely accessible platform for everyone.
    The project won the XXI. Bohuslav Fuchs Award.
