Architecture and Urbanism, Bachelor Project


The design of the Asylum Home for Mothers with Children is located in a former car park together with the design of the Youth centre. The representative five-story building of the Youth centre is oriented to the main street of Na Valech and compositionally, it follows the panel buildings opposite. The asylum house with three floors has a modest and calm feel, creating a small addition that connects in height to the surrounding structure, respects the surrounding structures and does not provoke excessive contrasts. Both structures are U-shaped, fill a not-quite-used car park clearing, and maintain a passage from both sides to part of the historic walls. The complex of structures is designed primarily for children and enriches Litomerice with places of conflict and social interaction.
