Všebořice Resort – Hotel and Restaurant
Revitalization of a burnt down building
ÚstÍ nad Labem, Všebořice, Czech Republic
project study 2010
project planning permit 2011
On the outskirts of Ústí nad Labem inVšebořice there is located a two-storey burnt down house to
which stone ruins of a former industrial building belong.
The object has huge potential, even though it is a part of an industrial zone. That is the reason why his owner decided to reconstruct it.
The zone has been gradually reclaimed from production to recreational. The original exhausted
areas have been changed into flooded lakes which adjoin an airport and a golf course. Moreover, there is a unique proximity to the first exit into town from the D8 highway.
The place itself is beautiful, full of greenery. Mature lime trees with a small chapel at the crossroads
give it distinctive atmosphere. Upper floors of the building and the terrace of the restaurant offer magnificent views of the hills of the Bohemian highlands.
The existing burnt down building is going to be rebuilt into a hotel with capacity of 28 persons.
The hotel is going to be extended only on the ground floor from the west, south and east side to create necessary capacity to operate the hotel. On flat roofs on the second floor there are projected small terraces adjacent the rooms.
They are going to be separated with strips of green roofs with high grasses.
The adjacent object looks like a stone ruin. Place to place there was used brick masonry, especially in the vaulting above the windows.
This stone torso has its own magic and that's why we decided to preserve it in the current state.
The new restaurant building is going to be inserted inside it as a steel skeleton and ferroconcrete construction with its own foundation. The ground floor is going to be more or less
hidden in the stone mantle but the second floor is going to be largely glass cladded in contrast with
stones in the ground.
The restaurant will offer views of the landscape and surrounding greenery. The glass surfaces will encourage passers-by to stop and sit for a while.
