The Dutch architects are known mainly for the construction of the main Train Station in Rotterdam, completion of the new wing of Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, or The Edge, the green office building also located in the capital of the Netherlands. They have received several international awards for their work, including a nomination for the prestigious Mies van der Rohe Award. The Dutch entered the competition together with Prague studio RA15 that they had previously worked with on an urban study for Prague airport.
The winning design bet on the concentration of greenery in an urban closed inner yard where a park with an area of 9,500 m2 was created.
Penta Real Estate - together with SUDOP and České Dráhy – have invited local and foreign architects, architectural practices and teams to an open two-round international architectural and urban design competition. This aims to find the best proposal for a large-scale residential scheme in the Prague city part of Žižkov.
The competition site is located in the eastern part of Žižkov, on the north-east edge of the former Nákladní Nádraží Žižkov (Žižkov Freight Station).
This area will undergo a large-scale redevelopment with a focus on residential usage.
We are confident that our project – defined by its location, atop a mound with views to the south and separated from the rest of the area by a mature line of trees – has strong potential to transform the location into an attractive, convenient, and comfortable place to live.
Mainly residential, with approximately 500 apartments (min. 46 200 sqm GFA) combined with public amenities (commercial or non-commercial function) of local significance.
The jury comprises 10 members. Five members independent from the organizer and five members representing the organizer.
