The Brownfields solutions within the Czech Republic - Tepna Nachod
Kalvoda, Vít ; Erben, Adam (referee) ; Pavlovský, Tomáš (advisor)
The urban study deals with the design of the new city district in the area where the Tepna Náchod textile factory used to stand. The total area of the solved area (including the existing development) is 10.35 ha. My intention was to create a new neighborhood that will take advantage of the huge benefits of this area. These are the terrain configuration and the immediate proximity of the historic city center and the train and bus stations. Because the area is flat and it is one of the few in the city that is not on the slope, I decided to place a compact block of flats and make the most of the area. The aim was to design a new city district, basically a modern city center, but it will not compete with the historic one, but rather will support it. The newly designed public spaces are not critical in their size, but in their content and diversity. The main idea of the proposal was to use the proximity of the railway station, the historic center and the terrain and create a barrier-free city district for the inhabitants, which will connect the surrounding city districts and at the same time offer enough housing, places for business and also a leisure time environment. And everything is within walking distance of the station and the center.
Building of Current Railway Station in Brno
Kalvoda, Vít ; Tichomirov, Vladimír (referee) ; Myslín, Jiří (advisor) ; Novotný, Miloslav (advisor)
The present Bachelor´s thesis is based on the project carried out as an architectural design studio´s project of the 4th semester of Bachelor´s degree. The assigned task concerned a reconstruction of a historical building currently used as the main railway station of Brno city. The project deals with reconstruction and possible new uses of the building in case that a current railway station should be moved about 800 meters to the south (the new position of the railway station might be decided by the Ministry of transport of the Czech Republic depending on feasibility studies in near future). The project aims to show new possibilities of use for the historical building (after the railway station being moved) as well as to find an easier access to surrounding area for pedestrians coming from the city centre and heading to the South. So the project considers the demolition of the building wing nearest to the Post Office (building). In this way, a new passage for pedestrians could be opened at the same time a new optical connection would be created. On the part of the demolished wing ground plan a new high-rise building with a panoramatic terrace and commercial use would be erected. It would also serve as a landmark. Further the tower of the historical building, destroyed in the World War II. would be newly reconstructed. The old passage along the front of the west wing would be demolished and a new one build. Eventually the remains of the west wall would be reconstructed after demolition. Even if these extentions and changes are carried out in modern design, the historical values of the building and its genius loci would be respected. In the area of the former railyard, a park would be created which is desperately needed in this part of the city. The weelchair access is planed across the park heading from the city centre towards the bridge at the level of second floor of Tesco and NG Vaňkovka. There would be also a parking lot for about 700 cars below the park.
