Palascak Simonova Studio Project Introduction – New Archip

This semester we are designing a future-oriented and sustainable new school building for Archip. Building site was choosen in cooperation with LENKA BURGEROVÁ (Council member of the District of Prague 7 for development and architecture). The site has the potential for future devedevelopment and the new school building.

The task is to design NEW ARCHIP placed at Z-shaped plot near Nadraží Holešovice – Prague Metro station on Line C between streets Plynární and Železničářů.  Line C partly crosses the plot and the station is 7 metres below ground level. The site is not suitable for extensive development, but very suitable for small public building such as school.


The goal is to design school for 150 STUDENTS divided into 6 STUDIOS. We are looking

for FEASIBLE solutions with interesting SPATIAL CONCEPT. New buidling should support

positive social change, should bring culture and education to the area and present ARCHIP as

open institution.

Design, spatial layout, structure and materials will represent Archip as young and PROGRESSIVE

international school of architecture in Prague. It is going to be the center and a favourite gathering place for students.
