Penta Real Estate organized a two-round architectural competition for its downtown project, Office Hybernská. There were Czech and Slovak participants invited. The main goal was to complete the block of Masaryk railway station buildings with a strong historical context and bring new use to the historical, yet neglected building of the former post office.

Two winners announced

After the jury’s evaluation, out of a total of 7 architectural teams’ proposals, unusually two 1st places were awarded to both OV-A and Studio Klaskathe official announcement says.

“The jury recommended for implementation a proposal by Jakub Klaška, who was part of the Zaha Hadid Architects team for many years, participated in the Masaryčka building and knows the area intimately. Currently, he works at his own studio, but it is clear that the winning proposal is very well connected to the existing development in the vicinity of the site. The proposal truly caught the eye primarily with its design rendering, work with detail and sensitive connection of historical and new elements,” – Pavel Streblov, business director of Penta Real Estate.
