The competition

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.

Competition area

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.

Function

Mainly residential, with approximately 500 apartments (min. 46 200 sqm GFA) combined with public amenities (commercial or non-commercial function) of local significance.

Location

Žižkov, Prague

Originally envisioned as a residential area on the periphery of Prague, Žižkov has undergone significant redevelopment in recent years – transforming it into a lively neighbourhood with steadily growing public amenities, as well as efficient connections to the city centre.

Jury

The jury comprises 10 members. Five members independent from the organizer and five members representing the organizer.
