The intention of the reconstruction of the former Brewery in Domažlice (cultural monument) was to build a new modern multifunctional facility for leisure, educational and social activities for the inhabitants of Domažlice and also to restore the interrupted tradition of beer production.
The brewery is located on the edge of the Municipal Monument Reserve and you will find a mini-brewery, a restaurant, a beer hall, a library, a community center, a hall, a gallery, a museum.
The design of the interior and its execution preserves the unity and openness of all existing spaces to the maximum extent. The individual operations logically follow each other and complement each other.
Relocated fragments of the original technology are installed in the interiors to complete the atmosphere of the brewery. The interiors are airy and uniform so as not to disturb the industrial architecture of the building. The materials are chosen mainly natural and stylishly complement the original building.

The considerate reconstruction combined the need for general building intervention, respect for the monumental values of the building and the functionality of the sensitively designed interior. The south wing of the building bears a unique transparent aluminum cladding and thus evokes the illusion of a beer tent. All this gives the building the hallmark of a significant dominant of Domažlice.
Carried out construction and remediation works on the building: modifications of foundation structures, remediation of vertical structures, pouring cast iron columns with concrete mixture, deep masonry grouting at the fault, remediation of horizontal load-bearing structures, remediation of wooden load-bearing structures with steel elements, total remediation of truss system including replacement of damaged elements. Complete replacement of technical equipment of the building (heating, all technical installation, air conditioning, electrical installation…).
