Join us at Festival of Architecture - OPEN HOUSE, May 13th-14th

We invite you to the third annual Open House Festival Prague 2017

Our third annual Open House Prague Festival will open up more than 40 buildings and structures of architectural interest, thus inviting the general public to visit buildings in Prague that are not usually accessible over the weekend of 13 and 14 May. The public will have a unique opportunity to visit and explore the interiors of houses, around which they walk every day.

Duhovka enters into the project with its elementary school for the second year and with its high school for the first time this year.

Duhovka High School, Saturday, 13 May

The building itself, in which our high school is located, was built in the 1920s. The aim of its reconstruction was to express its original character but also to meet educational needs. The school should be a place where seriousness and elegance of the architecture of the First Republic meet with open and dynamic present-day Montessori education.  

Architects: Tomáš Bém, Vratislav Lhota a Mečislav Petrů

Duhovka Elementary, Saturday, 13 May

The reconstruction of the building aimed to create an environment that corresponds with children's natural developmental needs. Each classroom has its own colour scheme based on the concept of our school. The purpose of the reconstruction was to create a spatially varied environment with a pleasant atmosphere supporting creative activities where children feel happy.

Architects: Ateliér SAD
