Architecture offices Gruppa Studio (Jan Kudlička, Anne-Sereine Tremblay) and Anagram Architecture & Urbanism (Marina Kounavi) received the first prize in the competition for the reconstruction of the Town Hall in Přerov, Czech Republic, for their proposal “The Connector”.
-Text description provided by the architects
The brief requests the reconstruction of the Town Hall of Prerov, a building which dates back at 1969 outcome of an intensive political period of Czechia. The connector offers a new image for the Town Hall of Přerov respecting the character of the building and emphasizing the aim of the town hall as a social generator rather than a power imposer.
The building is composed of a repeated structural system – a concept that delivers flexibility and efficiency. The 6-storey building will accommodate almost 5.000m2 of office program and public amenities.
The main idea is to create an open dialogue between the Public and the Town Hall. By creating the Connector, the main stairs which cross the whole building enable the easy communication between the departments and also create an entrance point to the terrace with a Café which becomes a contemporary viewpoint, a watchtower to the historic square of the Přerov city.
