Chybik + Kristof Architects preserve Brutalist architectural heritage while advocating for positive social change through their redesign of the Zvonarka Central Bus Terminal

In Brno, Czech Republic, Chybik + Kristof Architects have completed the redesign of Zvonarka Central Bus Terminal. The project saw the architects actively engage in preserving the existing Brutalist structure – a steel supporting frame and concrete roof – and its original identity, preserving and reflecting an important part of the city’s architectural identity. Alex Shoots Buildings Stressing the station’s central role in the city and the region’s sociocultural fabric, the project is further a rethink of a decaying transportation hub and public space, adapting and responding to current social needs. Caption Constructed in 1988, Brno’s Zvonarka Central Bus Terminal has long been considered one... More

IDEAL-Trade Service Brno

From outside... The gray envelope of the facade panels in the street, where there are mainly companies and car showrooms, fits in with the others. At first glance, however, it differs by its dark framed horizontal windows, which thus refer to the most famous, functionalist period of the city of Brno. With a little imagination, you can see the outlines of the famous Villa Savoy, an icon of the period. And thanks to these wide strip windows, there is enough light inside for all the offices in the administrative part of the building. The two-storey administrative building itself is supplemented to the rear by a production, development, and storage facility. An important element of the exterior, which is not visible from the street, at first... More

Mendel's greenhouse

Nested in the 14th-century Augustinian monastery’s gardens, the original building was swept away by a storm in the 1870s, leaving to this day only its foundations. Building on the latter, the architects revisit the structure and, in commemoration of Mendel’s birth 200 years ago, will return the historically significant site to Brno’s old city in 2022.  Located in the heart of the town, St. Augustin Abbey houses the remains of the greenhouse where Gregor Mendel, an Augustinian friar at the adjacent monastery, spent eight seasons, from 1856 to 1863, cultivating and breeding pea plants in his endeavor to uncover the biological mechanism through which physical traits are passed down from one generation to the next. B... More

Funeral hall in Valmez

A new funeral hall is placed in the cemetery grounds at the edge of the town of Valašské Meziříčí.The architectural competition took place in spring 2014 with about 60 participants. The task was to design a new building of a funeral hall for 200 people along with columbaria, scattering garden and adaptation of space of the main cemetery entrance. Our winning project covered all the required elements into the one composed unit – ceremonial district.This ceremonial district is a clearly defined space element with a strong symbolic importance. A ritual meaning of the place is accented by an ascending axis symbolizing the last journey. This path is lined by trees and divided regularly – as well as the human life – by the regularly set stairs. T... More

FUNTASTY office

FUNTASTY, a mobile app development company from Brno, Czech Republic, has just made itself at home in a unique conversion of a former parking garage. The new work environment serving forty-two developers, coders and designers was brought to life by Studio Perspektiv. Dozens of cars cruising the garage every day have given way to a full-fledged office without compromises. By completion of this generously equipped office a much larger company could brag about, FUNTASTY achieved the necessary freedom, flexibility and opportunity to throw social events and gatherings in a spacious social zone richly supported by the community kitchen overlooking Kounicova Street. Studio Perspektiv decided to incorporate certain aspects of the rather p...

Pavilion of Humanity in Brno

Moravské Náměstí is a busy square in the centre of Brno, and a vibrant center of Brno’s social life. As it lies right on the Brno ring road boulevard, inspired by the Ringstraße in Vienna, thousands of people walk and drive through it every day. Few of them, however, realize the historical complexity of the spacious area, which used to be part of the city’s fortification system from 1243, a Nazi center during the war, and memorial sites . Last summer, the square gained another historical chapter when it was temporarily redesigned by the Brno architecture studio CHYBIK + KRISTOF, to hold the needs of the multigenre festival “Meeting Brno.” The festival’s theme was the notion of European unity, as it is currently greatly endang...
