The hotel building was built at the turn of the 1950s and 1960s in the area of Sedlčany square and formed a quality part of it from the urban and architectural point of view. The building with its courtyard wings used the entire site quite intensively for a restaurant, a ballroom and hotel rooms, but for many years it was no longer in use and fell into disrepair.

The new owner, who approached us for cooperation, decided to convert it into a multi-purpose town house enriching the social life of Sedlčany and its surroundings, it was his second non-profit project besides the establishment of a theatre in the village of Dražkov. The building program included two multi-purpose interconnecting halls, a fitness center, a wellness center, medical offices, a café, offices and an apartment unit.

Adaptation to the new function did not require extensive intervention in the supporting structures, and the basic scheme of the original layout proved to be well utilized. The eastern façade facing the square was retained in its original form with the exception of one glazed dormer, while a local extension with a two-storey residential unit was added to the western courtyard façade. The purpose of our work was to exploit the simple, unadorned qualities of the original building, including the interiors, for the new function and to integrate original craftsman details, although this is far from being a case worthy of conservation.

The new entrance hall includes a restored inlay by Bohumír Matal. In the new café facing the square (with the future assumption of adapting part of the public space for outdoor seating) there is a mural by Patrik Habel.
