Vinohrady living room under the open sky

Prague 3

Prague, Czechia

Our winning design in the architectural competition for the reconstruction of Jiřího z Lobkovice Square aims to cultivate its original function – a popular place for meetings, games, and relaxation of all generations of residents and local communities.

 

1st place in the architecture competition – Renovation of Jiří Lobkovic Square

 

Discover

We were looking for a suitable ratio between the delimitation of the square and the park, which now dominates. We wanted to clearly define the square as the axis of the entrance to the school and connect it with Vinohradská Street. We plant trees and create a so-called living room under the open sky.

Design

The space of the park and the square paraphrases the painting A Sunday afternoon on the island of Grande Jatte by George Seurat, which depicts the everyday situation in an urban society. We place the park’s space in a frame, which is formed by a network of paths of its visitors and places in which they spend their time. We further divide the frame into three parts according to the plot concepts – a park, a playground for small and older children, supplemented by a workout zone, and a piazzetta with a water element in the form of fountains.
