One of the biggest challenges for architects is designing their own residence. We also tried that while planning our own headquarters, named “Svitava Office”. The designed building is an administrative building carrying office-spaces with facilities, such are meeting rooms, sanitary facilities, incl. showers, kitchenettes etc.
The new administrative building was built on the site of a former apartment building, which was demolished due to the unsatisfactory construction and technical conditions.
It is a clean, four-storey building without a basement, with a flat roof construction, and with its floor plan together with a solid shape fully respects outlines of the plot and surrounding buildings.
Size of the ground floor is recessed and there is a passage to the remaining part of the plot behind the building, a backyard, on which there is a parking space.

From a construction-technical point of view, the structure offers a standard solution–main structure is made of a reinforced monolithic concrete, using the column system with concrete columns and concrete ceilings, in combination with fill-in brick walls. Supporting walls are made of ceramic blocks, partitions are made of plaster-boards.
The facade is bearing contact thermal insulation system.The backyard facade is designed as a simple white, while the facade facing the street is bearing brick-coloured ceramic tiles.Windows and doors are made of aluminium in anthracite colour.
The roof is designed as a single-sheath and serves for the placement of technologies.
