CHYBIK+KRISTOF

Our design winner of the 2nd prize in the invited competition in Prague

November 8th, 2018 – We won the 2nd prize in the invited competition to design a new building near the centre of Prague, in Strakonická street next to the Vltava riverbank. The design of the building is curved shape and has two elevations defined by their specific functions. A residential one with apartments that are mostly oriented towards Vltava river offering a great view of Vyšehrad Castle, and a retail one with offices occupying the ground floor and the first floors where there is a lack of daylight. While the residential part is made using brickyard cladding, the office section is designed as an abstract glazed surface creating a combination that gives a unique appearance to the building in the context of the whole city.

Our design winner of the 2nd prize in the invited competition to build new pavilions for the Brno Exhibition Center!

November 1st, 2018 – The BVV – Brněnské výstaviště was built in the 1930’s, is the most prominent convention center in Central Europe, and is of great importance for our beloved city of Brno. The project consists of the creation of a complete new pavilion D and the reconstruction of the existing pavilion C, which dates from the 1950s. Our proposal responds to the radical transformation that the center is facing these days, in order to be more interconnected with the city and become an important space that won’t be used purely for exhibition purposes.

We have won a competition to overhaul a section of the former Prague Nusle Brewery premises

July 20th, 2018 – The unique locality in question is situated just off the centre of Prague, boasting a great potential to become one of the most attractive city parts. Our intention is to cooperate with Penta Real Estate, whose objective is to transform the area into a high quality metropolitan complex with nearly 400 apartments in its northern part. The premises, which are currently rather neglected, used to serve as the production site of what once was one of the largest breweries in Central Europe. We seek to overhaul its northern section, making the most of the historical values created in the era when the site functioned as a Prague Nusle community centre.

It’s wine time!

July 5th, 2018 – We were asked to design a new wine gallery in the town of Znojmo, Czech Republic. The gallery, which is to form a part of the newly renovated Znojmo Brewery, boasts an attractive location offering tremendous views of the historical urban landscape of Znojmo. A wine bar with a tasting room is to be a part of the gallery, giving guests a chance to sample the best wines of the region. Our proposal takes advantage of the existing rooms‘ six metres of clear height, which is divided into a wide variety of spaces of various scales and atmospheres by a set of load bearing walls made out of glass bricks. Each of the bricks to be used exclusively for this project are made from recycled wine bottles. New generously dimensioned wall windows are oriented towards the town, offering generous views of it.

New look of the Karlin metro station in Prague

June 27th, 2018 – This is a preliminary study we are developing for KARLÍN GROUP in order to redesign the look of Křižíkova Metro station. Karlin is a fresh district in Prague full of new cafes and bars and home to regular events and festivals, our project tries to connect the station with the neighborhood eliminating barriers between them, and giving it functionality by using even the roof as a green terrace. Other features of the design are the remembrance of František Křižík, the engineer and inventor who had his factory near the current station and after whom the station was named, and the implementation of intensive greenery in order to improve the local climate.

Villa Záhorská, Bratislava

June 23rd, 2018 – This was our proposal for the Villa Záhorská in the western foothills of Bratislava.

The bedrooms of the villa have direct access to the garden and on the upper floor there is a library and a rest and wellness area.
