Revitalization design for the industrial area of Perla 01 and its building plan by our studio compete for the title of the Urban Project of the year 2019
Building of the Year, Foreign project of the Year, and Urban Project of the Year – these titles were awarded on the ceremonial gala evening held at the Bethlehem Chapel on October 21, 2019. Our building plan of revitalization of Perla 01, the brownfield in Ústí nad Orlicí, competed for the 2019 Urban Project 2019. Three projects were shortlisted by the panel of experts. Our design respects and reflects current connections and bonds in the area and develops them positively. It integrates the restored area in the structure of public spaces and city infrastructure; and eliminates its existing separating effects. The revitalized Perla is designed as a part of the city infrastructure and it offers different comprehensive uses meeting expectations and needs of citizens in Ústí nad Orlicí with the needs of comprehensive city development. The system used eliminates premature demolitions, ensures continuity in urban structure development and continuing potential for development on all economic, social and cultural levels. Its ability to continuously adapt to changing needs and possibilities of the city, its population and business segment as well as its economic feasibility are particularly important aspects of the designed concept. Economic feasibility of the concept is based on flexible stages of the reconstruction as well as on using a wide range of funding sources – private, public provided by the city and up to the state and European funding as well as standard commercial credit project funding.
