Campus Prague masterplan competition

    Description:

    Campus Prague was a masterplan competition for the headquarters of a Czech bank. The multi-functional office campus will occupy a brownfield site and extend the Smíchov neighbourhood in central Prague.

    In our masterplan proposal, an interplay of buildings and public realm creates a welcoming, diverse and urban office campus. The blocks continue the scale and permeability of Smíchov. The proposed office building type fosters vibrant street life. The headquarters gathers around a pedestrian boulevard that leads to a new station. Subtle variation in the width of the boulevard and open ground floors animate the route.

    The headquarters consists of four star-like buildings that unite below the boulevard. The office units wrap around multi-storey lobbies. The layout is functionally adaptable, efficient, naturally lit and nurtures communality and creativity. The masterplan clusters the functions of the headquarters for synergy. While the campus has a uniform appearance, each building has a unique functional character. The crystalline building volumes of the masterplan echo the heritage of Prague.
