Erasmus Exhibition

ŽATEC COMMUNITY CENTER - ADAPTIVE REUSE OF EPSTEIN AND MENDL HOPS DEPOSIT BUILDING

Annotation

The Zatec community center takes place in a 3000m² former hop storage warehouse. The aim of the project was to create a cultural space where people coud meet, exchange, relax and learn. The community center includes a coffee restaurant with a games and relaxing area, linked to a terrace and the park adjoining the building to the south; a library with a small space for an exhibition on the history of the building, the city and the hops; and spaces for special lectures or meetings like arts and crafrs, or a reading club for example. As the building is very wide, double and triple heights were created to bring in more light.

my key experience from erasmus

Very good Erasmus experience at the studio, where everything is in English. It was easy to communicate with the Czech teachers and students. Great freedom in the choice of project (building, programme, etc.)
