Between Production and Recreation
Madro, Oskar ; Chuchlíková, Ida (referee) ; Hora, Jan (advisor)
The diploma thesis "In the Shadow", based on the pre-diploma thesis "After the Work", explores the territory of Brno's Kraví Hora. Then, on its basis, asks questions about the current form of the architect and urban planner profession, and the challenges that these professions are supposed to address. The thesis searches for the qualities of the territory in question in the shadows of our professions' interests, in areas outside the productive logic of things. In an attempt to find a way out of the tight spot in which we as architects and urban planners find ourselves today. As between two millstones, we are constricted by mutually contradictory systems - capitalism, on which we depend, and climate change, whose fatality and elusiveness subvert any sense of our work. Careful documentation of the territory seeks out moments that we might normally overlook or sweep off the table in the interests of the greater good, and places them at the centre. The periphery becomes the centre, the periphery shapes the centre. The result is an acceptance and appreciation of the existing reality of Kraví hora. On its basis, the thesis proposes both a set of small, quick interventions that will yield the potential for creating a green skeleton for the area, and then a scenario of transformation for the central part of the area, where the shadowy qualities of urban wilderness and the potential for new meanings collide. How to bring new activities to Kraví hora without destroying the urban wilderness?
Collective versus Communal
Dostálová, Johana ; Mertová, Martina (referee) ; Hora, Jan (advisor)
The Povel panel block estate is a typical example of an area that has undergone a fundamental transformation from a community way of life to an anonymous living space as part of the collectivization of housing. This has led to a severing of ties between the inhabitants with each other and with the place itself. This alienation is written into the situation of the inhabited environment. The potential of the oversized open space between the panel blocks remains untapped and vague. Through spatial interventions, I insert opportunities for establishing new relationships into the "no man's land". This inserted layer contributes to the overall sustainability of the Povel area.
Continuity of Aging

The thesis deals with alternative solutions to the current form of health and social care for the elderly. It addresses the problem of over-specialisation of care, which results in the deteriorating condition of the client requiring more frequent changes of care settings. The thesis builds on a pre-diploma project that explored the differences between different types of care. Where meaningful, it proposes to combine the different types of care into a coherent whole - a stable home. This offers continuity of care, stability of relationships between clients and also to staff, and constancy of environment. The stable home is presented in the form of a more generally applicable typology and then tested on a specific design for a home on náměstí Míru in Brno.

Nowadays, the residential crisis huge issue not only in Czech republic but also in Slovakia. There is a constant increasing in the housing demand in last vears, however the housing supply stays limited. The reason of the lack of of dwelling units is low building of new ones and also rising price of real estates. The aim of this thesis is to provide some form of available housing for socially disadvantaged groups. Desisned dwelling units will help to expand the number of flats in housing fond of the city of Louny. My intention is to create the architecture which blends and doesnt stand out of the concept of the area. Built-up area that is being created defines the space which is drowned into the greenery, a kind of a garden. This area has a potential for a formation of a pleasant enviroment which is also acoustically and visually calm. It creates feelings of different atmosphere in its, citizens. This enviroment will provide housing semipublic areas, places for relax and meeting and shared gardens which will connect with the suounding landscape.

Too high a price, missing a balcony, unsuitable world orientation, small space... most of us, those who have decided to choose our own path for an independent life, have already had this experience. Looking for housing is one of the most difficult life challenges nowadays. It is a challenge during which a person finds out how far he is willing to go in order to become independent. We often come across housing that does not even meet the standard required for living in an apartment, but even so, they are provided at unreasonable prices. This is also a frequent factor why many young people and families stay with their parents until a relatively late age or do not move out at all, which significantly affects the human psyche and interpersonal relationships as well. The goal of the TRI project is to create affordable urban housing for young adults and families in Louny. The main motive became the connection of life in the apartment with the outdoor space, which is difficult for a person with a limited budget to access. TRI consists of 3 sets of apartments, which, in addition to the apartments themselves, also offer many opportunities to use the exterior to the fullest. With their composition, they form three barriers separating the traffic infrastructure from the inner block, thereby creating a pleasant and safe life for residents in close contact with public space.

The subject of this project is development of municipal housing on the western edge of Louny. It dives into the context of living in a small town and aims to provide a more efficient alternative to the current urban study on the same area. The project deals with the special relations between apartments and the street and their scale. It originates from smaller units and composes them into larger parts, from special conception and individual apartments to an urban plan. The result is a hundred of apartment units in a compact structure that has a human scale and highlights the values of neighbourhoods and public spaces.

Subject of the project is municipal housing in Louny. Louny is a small town in Ústecký region, one hour away from the capital city of Czech Republic – Prague. Subjected site is on western periphery of the town. The site is located behind old housing estate in a really heterogeneous build-up area. There is a mixture of the housing estate, family houses, allotments and a heating plant. All this meets in one corner, on which the site is situated. In the wider area there are also some supermarkets and factories with warehouses. The topic of the project is to design municipal housing on this site. Housing owned by the town represents only 1,13% of the total number of apartments in the city. There are only 87 apartments in the town´s ownership. In my project, I bring 49 new apartments, which would significantly increase the current situation. Several factors suitable for the design of these apartments met in the selected area: the land belongs to the town, the supply of rental or municipal housing is generally low, the demand after it is high and is foreseen to continue rising. The added value in the design is the creation of space for the community both outdoors and indoors. The apartment units are designed for maximum use and at the same time for living full life in smaller apartment. The proposal is also conceived as a connection of the mismatched neighborhood. The goal of the project is to create a place that is pleasant to live in, supporting the creation of community and interpersonal relationships while maintaining the economic availability of both housing and construction. To create housing suitable for different groups of residents with different requirements, while preserving the unity of the layout system and the modularity of the building.

The proposal verifies the possibilities of completing the land on the edge of the historic centre in the form of a city block, within the extreme limits set by its narrow dimensions. The apparent disadvantages - the spatial limitation and the position on a slope - become an opportunity to create a variety of atmospheres and situations, different levels of height, partitions and connections. The concept reflects the phenomena of city coalescence, the end of the dominance of cars, addressing the lack of affordable housing and increasing the density of the city and place. The infill of the mixed-use building consists mainly of flats designed for population groups threatened by the current housing crisis - young people and the socially disadvantaged. The housing programme is complemented by council flats. The proposal seeks to provide service, leisure and social opportunities. The flats have private gardens located on green roofs and communal seating areas. An important part of the block is the community centre. In line with the concept of short distances, there are also shops and a café with a bookshop on the ground floor. In the part of the plot close to the city centre we find a small public square with greenery. Parking is located mostly in a semi-flooded basement, which gradually rises to the terrain and creates a platform for residential buildings. The contrast of the concrete base and the brick linear blocks is the main characteristic of the simple facades. The new urban block also reshapes the character of the surrounding streets, humanising them and integrating the urban fabric.

The Touch of Generations project works with the design of a house in the center of Louny on the border of two typology as a possible way forward for the housing of the future. Linking family housing with housing for the elderly. Today's urban individualism and anonymity have disrupted original family ties and values. That supported economic model of success and the vision of profit completely affected our behavior and lifestyle. From now on but that will change. The arrival of a new retirement generation. A generation that grew up under socialism and respects freedom more than others. A generation that will no longer want to live alone, but who will take the initiative for your life with the intention of living with dignity and fullness. A generation that will create countless new ones typology and thanks to which the image of senior life in cities will competently change.

The subject of the assignment was the design of a multifunctional house or a set of houses and adjacent public spaces in the town of Louny, located in the Ústí nad Labem region less than an hour's drive from the capital city of Prague. The plot is located on the very edge of the historical centre of Louny between the more traffic-exposed Osvoboditelů Street, Na Valích Street and Komenského Square. Currently there is a parking lot which serves the residents. However, the plot has much greater potential due to its location in relation to the historic centre and traffic connections. The theme of my work is to focus on a form of affordable housing that should expand the number of apartments in the urban housing stock of Louny while meeting the needs of its residents, connecting them and offering them opportunities to benefit from shared housing and the location of the house close to the centre. Giving them the opportunity to create a community, to meet and hold events in shared interior and exterior spaces, but also providing its residents with a sufficient amount of privacy. One of the goals is also to create an affordable housing development that does not have the stigma of being the cheapest development, but offers its residents a pleasant place to live, sets a new trend, and its appearance reflects its relationship to the downtown. The aim of the design was to create a structure that opens up to the city, offering new facilities for its residents, while providing sufficient comfort, security and dignity of living for the house's inhabitants. The community events of the house are therefore relatively hidden from the public, but at the same time allow anyone to enter the space. The project also focuses on the individual needs of groups of people. Using certain principles, I try to help the community life of the residents in the most natural way possible, so that at the same time the privacy of individuals is preserved.
