The new streetlevel public space urban design is an external extention of entry lobby of Dejvické Divadlo , as well as of adjacent Cafe .
The theatre itself is located at the ground and basement levels of a typical apartment building. The original space in front of the building was just a footpath with a strip of grass. The new design transformed this space into a kind of external lobby used for meeting ,relaxing and consumption of bewerages before the theatre program as well as during intervals.
The new public external space defined by a combination of flower 3D wire nets and masive wood benches is now wider than the original grass arera and offers space to stay and sit . 3D metal nets with flowering bushes work as fragments of green partitions ,offering a degree of privacy for the new relaxation areas. Masive exotic wood benches complete the partial public space enclosures. Large scale stone boulders combined with small stone filled areas add the element of city garden .
The area directly in front of the theatre and the cafe are fully paved in a combination of prague mosaic and prefabricated concrete stripes. The public space design extends further up the street. The fully paved area by the theatre entry gradualy changes into a garden area with minimum paving.
A new large catalpa tree marks the central point of the area.
