Rooseveltova street, Ústí nad Labem, Czechia
Marie Mikulová, Robert Randys
04/2023 architectural study
The main goal of the new administrative building was to respect the slope profile of the Rooseveltova street. The design has been developed with the location in mind. The new structure follows the terrain and builds up on its height that is parallel to the street height. The windows run all along the corner of the building which makes it look very dynamic. The sunbreakers in the lower floors facing south add on the compelling look of the mass.
The studio also considered the shape of the road nearby when designing the floor plan. The wings of the building are aligned parallel to the axis of the road. The main face of the building oriented to south west and south east, which provides optimal sunlight and attractive views. The main entrace is located in the north part and directly connects with the road.
The entrance to the underground garage is in the north part as well. The green rooftop of the parking place also serves as an entrance space in the main mass of the building. The charming cascade form of the structure allows for unexpected outdoor spaces to be used on each floor.
