Site compliance with zoning plan

New buildings situated along the streets in question (especially facing onto Českobratrská Street) will create a high-quality urban environment. The new buildings may abut the current buildings adjacent to the site; an alternative option would be an interesting free-standing building.

According to the current zoning plan, the sites are designated for mixed usage (residential and civic amenities). The optimum utilization of the space will be the construction of polyfunctional buildings combining residential units and civic amenities, though the decision is up to the investor. The sites are located within the Ostrava city centre urban heritage zone.


Site description

A new cultural quarter is being built in the vicinity of the site (on the land opposite).  Cultural and creative industries are key building blocks for all cities, and Ostrava is no exception. Ostrava has a rich and vibrant cultural life with a broad spectrum of institutions, artists and creative communities. Cultural and community projects are a natural and integral component of the City of Ostrava’s development-related activities.

The site is adjacent to a public cultural and community centre (PLATO)  and historic former city slaughterhouse which in the upcoming years is set to be transformed into a modern art gallery.The winner of the public international competition for this project was the KWK Promes studio from Poland, run by the globally renowned architect Robert Konieczny. The former slaughterhouse will be transformed into exhibition spaces for the PLATO contemporary art gallery, which (thanks to revolving walls) will also include an outdoor exhibition area. The six exhibition halls will be able to function either separately or together, as a single space. The building will also include offices, meeting rooms and a snack bar.

Close to the sites is the Nordica office building and one of the Czech Republic’s foremost performing arts schools – the Janáček Conservatory.
