The architecture of the new district is based on simple and clear shapes and colours, yet it still respects the uniqueness of each house. The uniqueness is shown, above all, in the first floor that becomes the differentiator of the houses, and in the last, retracted floor, corresponding to various types of apartments and providing for forming of generous terraces and views.
Although the „Nová terasa“ residential compound is located nearby buildings typical for the 1960s, we have based our concept on typical urban elements, such as streets, squares, and courtyards. Indeed, closed courtyards form one of the key elements of the new district. It is a semi-private area with defined specific users and thus also owners that care for it and enjoy it.
It becomes the centre of a new community, forming an important element of a pleasant living, and a protected territory for minor relaxation activities for children and adults alike. It includes a small playground and greenery with places to sit.
