Joy to lie down

Nina Gáťová, Martin Kozák


Park Joy in Žižkov is cramped under the stadium of Viktoria Žižkov. Most of the season it is used as a shortcut to the Husinecká tram stop rather than a place of rest. There is almost no place to slow the pace. Therefore, we decided to fulfill its potential. The design consists of a terrace which attracts passers-by and at the same time brings them under the treetops. There is a wooden bench waiting for them, built in the shade around the trunk of a tree. Furthermore, a residential net designed for 6 people awaits them, where people can lie down and refresh themselves during a hot summer day. A pipe with nozzles is brought into the crowns along the trunk, which forms a fine water mist, which refreshes everyone who decides to enjoy a moment. It is just a joy to lie down
