Conversion of a city block in Ljubljana
Uhríková, Tatiana ; Rypl Žabčíková, Ada (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The design of the urban - architectural study of the city block serves as an ideological concept of the reconversion of the historic city block of Ljubljana and at the same time offers possible answers to the problem of thickening city centers, the use of vague urban spaces that have lost their significance. The first part of the proposal deals with the solution of micro urbanism of the inner block, which is currently undergoing many building modifications, which eventually led to its devastation and degradation of the environment. The design of urbanism responds to the naturalness of the urban organism, respects its unique context, and aims to create a natural setting that can become part of the site without compromising its original integrity and character. The second part of the design is an architectural study of the Cultural Center with a theatrical scene, whose idea and concept arose as a result of thinking about densifying the city and using the potential of "empty places" to bring new qualities and a new impulse to life. The process also applies the knowledge from the work of Christopher Alexander and his Language of Patterns, which served as a theoretical basis and a great source of inspiration. The analytical part and the process of work naturally resulted in the program of the cultural center and theater, as a suitable and missing element of the city, which will create a strong center of activity across different age groups and communities. The organization of the material structure of the individual contents and the division of the program answers the questions of urbanism, specific ideas about the functioning of the site, the quality of the environment, and the creation of a positive geometry of public space. The functional content in the center reflects the idea of thickening within the organization of space and creates the organism of the "city in the city". The term thickening is not meant primarily as a formal thickening, but as content, which brings many new, diverse activities to the area addressed.

Pchálek, Arnošt ; Pyszko, Marek (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The master’s thesis is focused on reconstruction of cultural buildings in town of Velké Němčice. These buildings are situated in the part of town called Městečko. The buildings were built in 70s – 80s in 20th century and nowadays they are past their technical, functional or aesthetic expiration mark. The concept idea is in lines of thinking that town square does not have a compact structure due to radical interventions in second half of 20th century and is undefined. The concept idea is working with services actually functioning within these objects and it is improving and simplifying their connectivity. The main aim of this master’s thesis is reconstruction of current objects of cinema, old fire station and culture hall and creating functioning object for the use of local community.
Cultural Centre of Velké Němčice
Tomašáková, Alexandra ; Krettová, Eva (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The diploma thesis deals with the design of a new cultural center in the village of Velké Němčice. It is located right in the historic center of the village. The current building of the cultural house does not sufficiently serve its purpose and its revitalization is necessary. The building, built in the 1960s, is one of many cultural facilities of this type. Over time, various extensions were added to the site, which are responsible for the incomplete appearance of the building. The aim of the work was to check the possibilities of designing a new cultural center that would better serve the people od Velké Němčice. It can be an example of how to deal with this type of building, which is located in all corners of the Czech Republic. Emphasis is placed on the functionality and variability of spaces, which should create a multi-purpose cultural background of the village with a community character. It should be the best place for the locals and their hobbies and clubs. The building also responds to the context of the structure of the village and tries to integrate into its surroundings. The proposal was also preceded by an urban study of the village center itself and its square, which is also the cultural center of the village where its social life take place. The multifunctional cultural and educational center includes many new functions that should help the further development of Velké Němčice.

The subject of the diploma thesis is aiming for a new image of a cultural centre located on the square of Velké Němčice town. This project purifies the main objects, emphasizes their character and connects them with a light construction. This construction provides dignified background and one entrance to these objects and also unifies the shattered facade exposed to the town square.
Campus + New building of Faculty of Architecture, Technical University of Nitra
Csanda, Denis ; Šabík, Viktor (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The diploma thesis deals with the design of a new university with the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Arts in Nitra. The main topic is how to properly place and design a new university building in relation to surrounding buildings, which is mainly a national monument [Slovak University of Agriculture designed by architect Vladimír Dedeček.] This topic is based on the undergraduate work, which deals with campus of SPU and UKF. In the undergraduate work, an urban study was prepared for the entire campus area, which tries to point out its potential. It defined the place where the design of the diploma thesis building should be concentrated, which is a direct continuation of it and follows up on its topic. The form of the university is based on Dedeček's thoughts on the composition of the campus. It works with the axis scheme "cardo-decumanus", is based on the forms of SPU pavilions and imitates the way UKF operates. The form is cropped so as not to cover the monument to a greater extent than the growing greenery currently does. This creates terraces, which are accessible by hidden stairs from the square to the highest part of the roof. These terraces create a new level of public life, from which there are views of Zobor and the city skyline. Like terraces, facades are also accessible. By moving the floors, galleries are created that bypass the entire university. It is also important to process the theme of the studios. Both faculties have a similar studio teaching method. These studios function as separate parts of the university. They are linked to the faculty institutes by staircases running across the floors. Between these parts, four unique exterior spaces are created, which have a specific purpose and function.
Campus + New university Library in Nitra
Šmídová, Anežka ; Šabík, Viktor (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The diploma thesis deals with the design of a university library in the city of Nitra in Slovakia. The main point in creating the library is how to properly design this library given the circumstances in the area, such as the dominant feature of the national monument of the Slovak University of Agriculture designed by architect Vladimír Dědeček. The second dominant feature of the place is the views of Zobor. The diploma thesis follows up on the undergraduate project, in which the entire new campus was designed. This proposal defined the location of the new university library. The form is based on the spatial composition [cardo, decumanus] of Vladimír Dědeček, which is observed by all neighboring buildings. The mass of the library tries not to draw attention to itself, so a large part of it is located underground. Another important point in the design is road transport, which divides universities. This phenomenon is taken into account in the design and thus creates another passage under this path, which connects the universities. The library occupies a large part of the area and therefore tries to return the occupied part with the help of green walkable roofs, which creates additional space for views and vistas. In addition, the proposal also works with road transport, which runs over the roof of the library. Overall, the proposal seeks to show what university libraries might look like, where it's not just about books and study places, but also about meetings, debates and listening.
Democratic Architecture – Ostrava
Staněk, Lukáš ; Šmédek, František (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The bachelor thesis deals with the design of a residential building in an almost neglected location in Moravská Ostrava. The proposal looks for a way how to portray housing as such as community housing applicable in Czech conditions. The result is an adaptable environment that users can choose according to their wishes, as democracy says - about choices, about voting. Its variable and flexible form offers very easily and quickly changes to the program, whatever the advanced age of users, or with the needs for more space for new additions to households. Even the smallest apartments take on a sense of generosity, with pull-out furniture and wall - screens. The interior of the flats is renewed and creats a "room in a room". However, the case study also deals with the housing crisis and the shortage of housing, so the variety of functions are limited mainly to housing. However, the capacity for variation are retained and can be adapted over time to community housing, mixed - used or office space in an attractive location. It addresses the housing crisis comprehensively, and with a choice of apartment sizes ranging from studio apartments to 3 bedroom apartments. This system can be applicable to a variety of areas as well as plots with numerous dimensions. One of the many goals is to connect the public space with the indoor and outdoor space of the building. But it is it is important to maintain the intimacy of not only the semi-public space - the common areas of the building, but also the intimacy of the apartments. The design becomes a meeting point between the city and nature, specifically the roof garden and root purifier located in an unenclosed atrium in the wider centre of Ostrava. At the same time, it is capable of lowering the temperature in a densely populated and sparsely vegetated area.
Democratic Architecture – Ostrava
Šimková, Eliška ; Magnusek, Petr (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
Democracy is a way to live without fear for the future. It is a choice, but also a change of opinion. It's freedom. It is an opportunity to help each other. The bachelor thesis deals with the topic of democratic architecture and the concept of housing for life. The project completes the gap in Ostrava on Masná Street, opposite the former slaughterhouse, today the new Plato Gallery. The assigned gap is located in today's not very attractive area, which has great potential in the future, which must be used. The work responds to the current situation of unavailability of real estate and seeks an adequate solution to this problem. It finds it in the services of the owner of the apartment, who can rent part of his property and thus help him repay the mortgage earlier, or a tenant who currently has where to live.
Reservoirs - Brno, Zluty kopec (Yellow hill)
Goncharenko, Anna ; Stýblo, Jakub (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The diploma thesis deals with the creation of a design for a new building of the center of contemporary art and architecture and the use of existing reservoirs on Yellow Hill in Brno with the possibility of changing their original function. The work deals with the possibilities of processing the original terrain and the connection of the proposed new buildings to existing reservoirs. Architecturally, it explores the possibilities of designing new buildings contextually with the current architectural expression of the surrounding buildings and past architecture. The current situation is that a beautiful architectural and engineering monument, such as the reservoirs on Yellow Hill, is practically closed to the eyes of ordinary people. Only one of the three reservoirs is open to visit - the oldest brick reservoir built in 1872. The main goal of my work was therefore to make the reservoir area accessible to the public and to give people the opportunity to visit all three reservoirs. To this end, it was necessary to design entrance pavilions and safe entrances to the reservoirs and to fill the reservoirs with a new function, because the reservoirs were terminated in 1997, when they were disconnected from the water supply network.
Reservoirs - Brno, Zluty kopec (Yellow hill)
Tomanová, Tereza ; Horňasová, Tereza (referee) ; Nový, Vítězslav (advisor)
The diploma thesis deals with the possible use of now defunct reservoirs on the Yellow Hill. This water supply complex consists of three underground reservoirs and a technical house. The area is spread over a large plot of land overgrown with wild vegetation in the middle of a residential area. The set of underground reservoirs, covered by a system of arches supported by pillars, represents a unique architectural and technical monument. The aim of the proposal is to make the reservoir area accessible to the public through new functions while preserving their historical value. The main motive of the concept is an interactive water museum built in the youngest reinforced concrete reservoir. The exhibition deals, among other things, with a very current topic of sustainable water management. The complex is complemented by a new visitor center, which will make it possible to access the reservoirs through a new entrance to the underground. The existing unmaintained area of greenery will be transformed into a public park independent of the operation of reservoirs.
