This project is a refinement of our winning proposal for the urban idea competition. The design subject became an area of the largest brownfield in the center of Břeclav, a former Kuffner sugar factory established in the 19th century. The project serves as the initial elaboration based on suggestions of key actors in the territory.

The proposed urban structure responds to the context and emphasizes quality connections with the existing urban fabric and the river. The utilization of different scales and typologies supports the habitability of the locality as well as its connection to the surrounding development. The new multifunctional district includes various types of housing, civic amenities, and production. Adequate population density and permeable structure allow for the application of the short distances city principle. As a result, a meaningful, readable location of diverse characters arises.
