The project deals with the reconstruction of the central part of the Bohnice housing estate at the Krakov Shopping Center and Culture House.
The proposal is based on the necessity to solve the entire territory in a comprehensive way, taking into account also the wider urban and landscape links of Bohnice and Prague’s Northern Town, as well as the original idea of ​​housing development as a housing surrounded by nature.
The entire territory is divided into three main parts, marked by the predominant functions such as “square”, “urban park” and “park”. These three spaces are not physically separated from each other, but they interfere freely. All three parts of the area are interconnected by circular “islands” with green or reinforced surfaces and tree planting. Part of the project is also the involvement of a cultural house from the 1970s into the public space using new access lanes and wooden stair steps.
