Townhouse / ProjektStudio

ProjektStudio has designed a multifunctional townhouse at the corner of Dlouhá a Zámecká in Moravian Ostrava.  The townhouse includes commercial spaces on the lower levels while the upper floors can be rented for residential or office purposes.   For the design of the townhouse, the architects have mixed the historical forms of the area with a contemporary expression.   Inspired by the historical horizontal emphasis of the facade treatment, the architects have shifted the facade to creating an irregular textured effect across the building.  This triangulated facade creates a new dramatic effect and provides a break from rows of traditional building faces in that area.  The historical regular window ordering as been modified as windows rotate and combine to form new rhythms in the fenestration.   “Dramatic effect by the view at the proposed new-building is reached with the minimum of devices but all at once in the classical way so that the new building is fresh and progressive, but at the same time it is  accepting  character of its neighbourhood,” explained the architects.
