Center for seniors in Brno-Medlánky
Otépka, Petr ; Klimecký, Martin (referee) ; Gerö, Jiří (advisor)
The architectural study for the elderly home follows on the urban-architectural study conducted in the previous semester as a part of the NGA056 – Specialised Studio course. The study resulted in a compact urban development with mix of functions. It includes not only housing, commerce, public buildings, the church, the sport hall and transport facilities, but also a block of centre for elderly. The architectural study is focused on creating a complex centre with good supply of services, amenities, privacy and, most importantly, quality spaces. The design is based on the concept of compactness. All pavilions which are full of spatial and operational requirements form a block and inner courtyard. The inner courtyard is situated above the underground parking, and it is adjacent to a park, connected to it by a ‘neck’. The park opens to the southwest and its borders are defined by the centre on the east and apartment building for elderly on north side. On the side which faces the centre of the new district, the block turns on its ground floor, accommodating a café, entrances and other services. It facilitates connection with the community, together with park on the opposite side. The proposal presents a contemporary perspective on housing for the elderly in our society. The spaces try to have their own identity, with which residents or clients can identify and accept a room or apartment as their home, rather than just a final stop on their life’s journey.
Restoration of limestone in Grygov
Otépka, Petr ; Mikeš, Stanislav (referee) ; Guzdek, Adam (advisor) ; Šuhajda, Karel (advisor)
The topic of my bachelor thesis was to prepare a documentation for the building permit and in part C a documentation for the construction. The documentation is based on an architectural study from the course “AG034 – Monument Restauration Studio”. The topic of the course was to think and to suggest a solution for the restauration of the former lime works building in Grygov that had lost its original use. Now it is falling into disrepair. Fortunately, the association “Za živou vápenku” is trying to bring the object back to life. After analysing the external influences, the needs of the inhabitants of Grygov, the requirements of the association and after preliminary construction-technical survey, I came to the following concept. If I kept the industrial character and especially the Genius loci of the building, the operational costs would be too high and, in the future, it would probably start to decay again. As a suitable solution, I suggest creating a multifunctional object. It will be used to the full in the summer and only occasionally in the winter. It means that the interior of the building will be divided into two parts: fully heated and locally tempered. This way will also help to sensitively solve humidity in the building by the method of ventilated air gaps. The multifunctional building will include exhibition spaces, a multifunctional hall and other multifunctional rooms, small refreshments in the bistro, distillery and sufficient hygienic facilities. A special innovation will be the conversion of the chimney into a lookout tower. In spirit of pluralism, I examine the quality, monumental values, individual layers and elements for suitable methods of restoration. Then I highlight the best of all the examined parts and bring them closer to future visitors. The experience of this industrial space will lie in being itself. This object will get ambition to become new place where people will meet and its existence will be there for future generations.
