Nitra, Slovakia

The architectural competition for constructing a multifunctional house in the center of Nitra, which we participated in, is situated in the complicated context of the place.

3rd place in a architecture competition



The city’s modernist and historical axis meet nearby, where the city-building architecture meets the monolith of the former OD Prior with the historic structures of the 19th century. The house proposed by us is to connect a broken street line, follow on the monumental terrace of a department store, and, at the same time, respond to the strict facade of the former barracks. The challenge for us was the narrow building plot, which is encumbered by a number of regulations and therefore allows only a small space for manipulation.



The relationship between the street and the OD Prior terrace is important to us, and we decided to connect the two public platforms through a semi-public lobby. At the same time, this solution facilitates access to office space. Parking in the building is solved at the level of the first underground floor using a system of the automatic stacker, which increases the efficiency of space use.
