The city park in Šlapanice is a natural centre of social life, a meeting place. This is what this house wants to be. It is not pretentious. Its simple morphology corresponds to the settlement around the castle. The two perpendicularly placed masses covered with gable roofs correspond well with the morphology of the surrounding area.

The proposed new building consists of two parts. One of them, perpendicular to Riegrova Street, houses the restaurant. This block contains, in addition to the necessary facilities, public toilets. In the summer months, the restaurant area can be directly connected to the generous space of the city park by means of a folding wall.
The second part, which is perpendicular to the restaurant block, houses the city library. It has a separate entrance close to the Šlapanice Grammar School. Behind the entrance on the ground floor is the children’s and young adults’ section, and upstairs is the adult section.
The main focal point of the “cross” at the intersection of the two masses is a multi-purpose meeting space. It can be transformed into a café and a reading room where visitors can read books from the shelves, or it can be separated from the restaurant and used for lectures, concerts, recitals, small theatre performances for children and adults, town festivals and other activities.
The space can be connected either with the restaurant or with the library space, or it can be used separately. The elevation of the hall follows the existing terrain and naturally extends to the outdoor terraces.

The façades are dominated by wooden cladding of heat-treated pine, by glass, metal, ceramic roof tiles and facade insulation system. The paved areas are made of granite combined with concrete.
