Bc. Kateřina Knotová

Architecture and Urbanism, MA diploma project


The aim of this project was  to find an appropriate method of preservation for medieval village of Bedrichuv Svetec with St. Jacob’s Church and a perished medieval manor. Historical survey part of the project  revised and expanded on earlier surveys. Design part of the project proposes subtle complementing changes in the village’s urbanism. It looks into the paris’s landscape and  central part  of the village in detail, as well as the church itself and it’s interior. The parish’s roads are rebordered with fruit trees, some of the perished footpaths are rebuilt and demolished wayside crosses put back to place. New houses are placed in abandoned plots and trees are planted to form a green envelope of the village. Simple new church furniture is designed and church’s old walls and stuccoes are preserved.
