Auditorium in a Former Gasometer
One of the successful modern constructions in Ostrava is the development of a multifunctional hall within the original gasometer.
This bold and successful idea was realized by architect Josef Pleskot in the Dolní Vítkovice area of Ostrava, which has been transforming from an industrial area into a multipurpose center.
The original gas cylinder, seventy meters in diameter, was partially lifted by fifteen meters to place a skylight of the same diameter in its center. This development has won numerous awards.
The freshest fruit of Ostrava's modern architecture is a multipurpose administrative building named Organica, scheduled for completion by the end of 2023.
The building comprises not only six floors with over 25,000 square meters of office space but also an adjoining park with its own furnishings and perfectly planned lighting.
Ostrava University Campus
On Černá Louka near the banks of the Ostravice River, a unique construction worth over a billion Czech crowns was completed.
The site, with two new university buildings and quality facilities for sports and the arts, has significantly transformed the Černá Louka area in Ostrava.
Near the aforementioned Ostrava University campus is the building of the former slaughterhouse.
In September 2023, the gallery Plato moved into this newly renovated building designed by Polish architect Robert Konieczny.
Ostravica – Textilia
Another unique project transforming a historical landmark into a modern structure is the former fashion house opened in 1930.
In its time, it was one of the most luxurious buildings in all of Czechoslovakia.
Today, in private hands, the building is being reconstructed according to the design of the famous Berlin-based extravagant architect Marie Frommer.
