For the last 20 years the original Hodolany Theatre buildinghas served as a warehouse for stage sets. After a period without proper maintenance the building started to developtechnical defectsand was sold to a private owner. The aim of the project was to submit an architecturally reasonable modification of the theatre and its surroundings in relation to its planned use as well asto find optimum city-planning connection of the premises with the surrounding housing development.
The concept of the reconstruction project was to maintain the original shape of the historic building and complement it with contemporary materials for its new use. Currently, the theatre premises serve as the main entrance with the superstructuresupporting resort management offices.
The new buildingsare simple blocks which sensitively complement the originaland are distinguished by the use contemporary materials, namely glass and COR-TEN pre-weathered sheets. A low block covered by COR-TENsheets witha casinowas added to theoriginal theatre on the southern side.The casino houses a restaurant with a glass-walled facade. You can enter a tall blockon the western side of the resort, whose facade was designed as a combination of glass and COR-TEN, through the connecting neck above the entrance to the car park. In this building there is a hotel and wellness centre.Between the two new massingsthere is a raw concrete wall defining the inner space of the resort.
The project also includes an updated traffic solution based on the reconstruction of the exit fromVelkomoravská street to Tovačovského street. The main entrances to the resort as well as entries to the car park are located on the northern side of Ostravská street, the latter situated both in the courtyard, and basement. Suppliesare delivered underground.
