CHK and SKANSKA collaborated on the mixed-use development of a post-industrial site in Modrany, on the outskirts of Prague. Once a Sugar Factory, after decades of prosperity, turned into a brownfield. This dominant site will now become a new center of the neighborhood, keeping its industrial identity. A new, hybrid type of material was used – Rebetong, from recycled bricks and concrete. This solution not only reduces waste generated during deconstruction but also preserves the unique, industrial character of the area.
The neighbors took an active part in the design process through consultations from its very beginning, as a result of which large public areas, including a multifunctional hall and a range of facilities and recreation riverfront areas, have been developed. The advanced system of blue-green infrastructure, together with renewable energy sources, mitigates the carbon footprint of the complex, embracing its biodiversity. The balance of architectural, technical, and sociological aspects formulates the harmonious habitat, which as an outcome, shapes a balanced neighborhood of distinctive identity.
