We invite you to Hovorčovice to an exhibition of proposals for the new Town Hall
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Friday 18.6.2021 from 18:00. The opening will be attended by representatives of the municipality, jury and organizers of the competition. The exhibition will be open to the public on Saturday 19.6. from 12:00 to 18:00 and on Sunday 20.6. from 10:00 to 16:00 in the Gymnasium of the Hovorčovice Primary School (Revoluční 930).
Our team of architects including Alexandr Verner, Kseniya Bahdanovich, Michal Šourek, Pavel Hřebecký and Pavel Shaban designed two double-storey, interconnected buildings – an office and a post office with three separate barrier-free entrances. The focus of the building is a courtyard which opens towards an adjacent church, which also acts as the forecourt of the building providing a friendly public space and a place to meet.
The form of the building and the arcade define the three entrances; leading to the offices, the post office and to the café. The volume and materiality of the building as well as the morphology of the roof naturally responds to the scale of the surrounding urbanism, which it harmoniously complements without the need to compete with the church opposite. We did not win this architectural and urban planning competition, but our proposal for the Town Hall continues to make us happy.
