Opuštěná-Trnitá, South Centre, Brno
A new impetus
for the Moravian metropolis
Brno is on the verge of seeing a large section of the city, known as Jižní centrum (South Centre), dramatically transformed for the better. This revitalized location in the heart of the largest city in Moravia will present the city and its inhabitants with new opportunities and a fresh energy.
An urban development study of the first 50 hectares of land was prepared by the Office of the City Architect of Brno (KAM) together with architects from the Brno-based Burian-Křivinka studio. Mark Johnson, the renowned American urban designer and landscape architect, whose team has experience in delivering similar projects around the world, also participated in the plan.
An important factor, which the study reflects, is the construction of new apartments for the city. Around several thousand new inhabitants, according to the plans of the Architect's Office, will live in this area. This new and vibrant area in the city centre will offer many new jobs as well as cultural and recreational facilities in the future.
Part of the substantial South Centre district is our piece of land, 4 hectares in size, located between Opuštěná and Trnitá streets and the future central boulevard. Mixed construction, comprising chiefly apartments, green spaces, offices and public buildings in a sophisticated urban project, will bring a new aesthetic to the site in the city centre, which has been neglected for too long.
The focus and scope of our project is coordinated from an architectural standpoint by the prestigious Burian-Křivinka studio. Our goal is to create a diverse urban neighborhood and avoid uniformity. That is why Burian and Křivinka invited other architectural studios to cooperate, in order to give the project as much character as possible and create a formidable yet atmospheric new nieghbourhood.
