The goal of this thesis is to analyze the area, find it’s essencial problems and find the most suitable new arrangement of the area and to process these into a new masterplan. The selected area segment has become a bridgehead of a Smíchov’srailway bridge; a tip defined by a river Vltava at eastern side, StrakonickáStreet at West and Vltavská Street at North. It is a valuable spot, located straight in the wider city centre nevertheless on it’s very edge; in the major development area of Smíchov. We find ourselves on a boarderline of a compact city and it’s suburbia; at a “gate” to the city while arriving from the south. The outcome is a conception of a new land use, including the changes of a transport system, functional and spatial delimitation of proposed and newly regenerated urban residential blocks; and framework study of two proposed new buildings significantly affecting the quality of the area.
