13:05 beginning of the site visit

Mrs. Kateřina Tůmová, Deputy Director, Trojská Primary School, introduced primary School. The participants of the tour passed through the complex from the main entrance of grammar school to the main entrance of the primary school located in the extension of gymnasium. Mr. Tomáš Bryknar, the mayor, explained the development of operations and entrances: Historically there was only one entrance in the historic building for both schools. After the floods, the gymnasium was rebuilt, and because of the intersection of grammar and primary schools, the entrance to the primary school was placed in the extension of gymnasium. According to the mayor, the current solution of the operations may appear as awkward, but it works. The Contracting Authority wishes are to separate the operations.

Gymnasiums (large and small) are capacitively sufficient. The Contracting Authority wishes to maintain the current state.

Lockers are capacitively sufficient. The Contracting Authority wishes to maintain the current state.

Gymnastic apparatus storeroom of similar size as lockers next to the gymnasium is located on the 1st floor.

The public entrance to the gym is on the 1st floor level. Some gym users use the entrance to the primary school, which is more accessible, thus shorten their way to the building, which is not appropriate.

The only hygienic facilities for the entire 1st floor are in the gym, where is also a small gym, changing room and gymnastic apparatus storeroom. This solution is not optimal.

The site visit continued to the primary school premises:

The present maximum school capacity of 130 pupils is now filled. The school counts with up to a capacity of 180 pupils.

The primary school changing room is now in the lobby of the gymnasium extension. Two pupils share one locker. Each pupil needs to have his own locker. It is necessary to find a full-fledged location for the changing room.

The primary School hall is in the heart of action. It directly follows classes, the school values it. The hall does not have a well-solved acoustic.

The so-called Aula 2 should be designed according to the brief, which should be of similar size as the existing hall; it will serve school exhibitions or project days. The wish of the Contracting Authority is for aula to be directly linked to primary school operations.

According to the deputy, the after-school care with the capacity required for the five classes does not have to be placed in groups, since pupils at the first stage can be divided into younger and older. Currently, the after-school care is located in three spaces on the 2nd floor, in a smaller classroom leading to the 3rd floor, and one core classroom is used as an after-school care as well. Current status is not optimal.

The staffroom and the pedagogical center are established provisionally. Competitors ought to find a suitable placement for these two spaces.

Director’s office and computer lab were built additionally and they should be connected to the school operation in a better way.

Competitors should propose, beside of the existing 5, new specialized classrooms (5×20 pupils), which will prospectively serve as core classes.

The site visit continued on to the grammar school hall, where Mr. Radim Andreas presented the grammar school and its operation:

Class attendance is 24-25 students, the relation to the primary school is clear and important (the eight-year grammar school is directly linked to the primary school, primary school pupils have an economic advantage if they decide to continue studying at this grammar school). Currently, the grammar school has a detached workplace and rents space in a building across the street. It is the wish of the client to unify all operations. The ecology classroom, the art classroom, and the psychologist-premises area should be located, for example, on site 294/1. The planned future capacity of the grammar school is 300 students.

Users enter the grammar school hall from the main entrance; the hall is followed by the secretariat of the school. The operator perceives this relationship very positively.

The secretariat is sufficient regarding dispositions and capacity.

Classes are located around the hall. They are sufficient regarding capacity.

Teacher’s offices were established by diminishing classrooms. They are accessible through classrooms. Each office should have its independent entrance from the hall or corridor.

The changing room was set up instead of the least sunlit class at the main entrance. Students share lockers in twos. Each student needs to have his own locker. Participants ought to find a fully-fledged location for the changing room.

It is appropriate to move the room of a psychologist, where also takes place intensive tuition of Czech language for Russian-speaking pupils, to the site 294/1.

Primary and grammar schools miss storage facilities. Participants ought to set up handy storage for teaching aids that teachers use regularly in teaching in addition to the main stores.

UNDERGROUND CLUB is to stay in the basement. According to the director, the grammar school will appreciate if the club has its own entrance.

The following questions were searched for: the site

19           Nemá se jeden z provozů, např. gymnázium, z budovy vystěhovat, aby uvolnil prostor tomu druhému, ZŠ?

No, both schools should stay in the building.

20           Je současné rozmístění kabinetů po škole vhodné?

No, the distribution of offices is not suitable. Especially offices with entrance through  class are not suitable. Every office should have its own entrance from the hall/corridor. There is no need to associate them.

21           Opravdu má být ZŠ rozšířena o dalších pět tříd?

Yes, the vision 5+5 classes is reasonable. The prognosis for the next 12 years is a system of two parallel primary school classes. There is a need for teachers to be in contact with after-school tutors. That is why primary school prefers to stay on plots 314/1+315. If the participants decide to move some of the primary school operations, this decision must be justified.

  1. 7. 2018 – 4:06 SELČ

22           I noticed that in the document PP.01, there is only one blank for one participant, so I would like to know whether we should submit more than one PP.01 files, each one represents one participant in our team.

There is only one document PP.01, fill all names in one document. For purpose of this competition is sufficient one address and e-mail.

23           Besides, we were told that the competition is something about reconstruction and expansion of the school; we want to know if we can demolish the existing building totally, or demolish it to a certain extent.

                Demolition is possible; the contracting authority wants to preserve the historic school building and the extension of the gymnasium as much as possible. Any demolition should be considered in relation to the budget of the Contracting Authority and the quality of the existing spaces affected by the removal.

25. 7. 2018 – 10:11 SETČ

24           From the brief we understand that there will be around 550 m2 added to the original school on plot 314/315. This can be done by adding on the top or next to the building. What is the preference?

                The only limit that may affect the priority of the Contracting Authority is the recommended limit of the Metropolitan Plan, which is set by the 3 NP (floors) on plots 314/1 + 315. Contracting Authority prefers to maintain the elevation level of the main ledge of the historic buildings of the school on Trojská Street due to the extent of enlargement, the importance of the Troja School for the neighbourhood and the nature of the district.

25           Following question 1. What are the building regulations for both plots 314/315 & 294? Please provide min. the following:

Existing school 

There are no Greenery, Site coverage coefficients for this plots (314/1+315) Metropolitan plan (it doesn´t have English version) recommends 3 floors (Contracting Authority prefers to maintain the elevation level of the main ledge of the historic buildings of the school on Trojská Street due to the extent of enlargement, the importance of the Troja School for the neighborhood and the nature of the district) and by nature they are classified as garden town:

Article 46

(06) the structure of the garden town

(1) The structure of the garden city is the urban structure of separate buildings, usually houses and villas located in their own gardens.

(2) The following principles of the spatial arrangement are set out in the area of the garden city:

  1. a) the street line is usually designed with fencing,
  2. b) the construction line is receding from the street line and is usually open,
  3. c) unbuilt parts of building blocks are private gardens,
  4. d) the height arrangement is stable and it is only possible to replenish it.

Plot 294/1

There will probably be a change in the land plan, the current regulation is:

OV – generally residential area

Territory used for housing with the possibility of placing additional functions for the population.



D             0,8          0,35        <= 2       0,4          Family houses, buildings for business

                               0,5          3             0,27       Vilas, buildings for business


KPP – coefficient of floor areas

KZ – Greenery coefficient

KZP – Site coverage coefficient

Metropolitan plan recommends 2 floors.

Regulation No. 10/2016 Coll. (Prague Building Regulations) is in force in Prague.

26           Please explain in more detail what the grammer school is. Is it a pre-school, in between primairy & high school, for different age children? Or, is it a more exclusive school for same age children but preparing for elite (harvard etc) schooling? Is the grammer school a seperate entity? Controlled by different director/board, or part of the same organisation? Please clarify further.

                                How does the school operation work in the Czech Republic is described on page 7 of Competition Brief, paragraph 3.9

Grammar school contains the second stage of elementary school and high school (6th – 9th grade + another 4 years). There is a general rule that students from grammar school continue to study on universities. The primary school is established by the city district, the grammar school is private. These two operations are independent of each other.

  1. 7. 2018 – 10:35 SETČ

27           Which building parts can be possibly deconstructed?

                See answer 23.

28           Requirement for disabled entrance to grammar school from the public space-it is now for disabled, accessible from the courtyard / public space /- so what is inconvenient on the current etrance to grammar school?

 If participants design a solution that changes the current deployment of sites and their entrances, they must ensure that the entrances are barrier-free. We are adding a scheme because the verbal explanation of the barrier-free operation of the main entrance may not be clear.

  1. 7. 2018 – 12:23 SETČ

29           Ktoré budovy môžu byť búrané a do ktorých môže byť zasahované čiastočne? Which building parts can be possibly deconstructed?

See answer 23.

30           By the requirement on entrances from public space, you mean entrances from street Trojská, Na Kazance or Nad Kazankou or even from the courtyard?

If referring to the sentence in paragraph 3.2: “Both must have a separate, barrier-free entrance logically oriented towards public space.”, then it´s important that the entrances are logically orientated toward the public space and easily accessible in the sense that they are visible from the street, having a way without obstacles leading to them. Their orientation is up to participants’ decision.

31           Can we use the green space next to the plot 294/1 on the Trojská-Na Kazance crossing?

No. This plot is a property of Diplomatic Service.

  1. 7. 2018 – 16:08 SETČ

32           Is it possible to move one of the schools to the new plot or is it preffer to keep them in the current building?

It is preferred to keep them on current plot. See the answer 19.

33           What is the function of the empty space below the basketball court/gym? Can it be used for extensions to the current building?

“Empty space below” is probably foundation. Under the big gymnasium there are only lockers and small gymnasium. There are no empty spaces.

34           How many pupils does each school has and how many do they expect to have in the following years? What does changing up to 180 and changing up to 300, stands for?


Elementary school is expecting up to 180 pupils, Grammar school up to 300. “Changing up to XY” = The Changing room capacity up to XY

35           In 3.4: what does 3×20 and 5×20 stay for? in regard of the after school space.

3x space for 20 pupils

                5x space for 20 pupils

36           in 3.6: are there new requierements for the caretaker apartment? Or does it mantain the 2 bedrooms, living room, corner kitchen scheme?

There are none.

37           in 3.7: can you clarify what you mean by “clean and dirty flows” to double check that we understood it correctly.

Dirty Flow – A person comes from outside with the outside shoes, he/she changes in the changing room.

                After that he/she goes in in inside-sports shoes to the gym – Clean flow.

38           in 3.8: Does the primary school need a new Hall of 120 sqm and if yes, is it located in the new building or in the old one? Can they use the HALL1 of 600 sqm  instead or it this not possible?

As written in 3.7 Operation Scheme, primary school requests 120 sqm hall on plot 315+314/1. This smaller one is only for elementary school purposes. The big hall will be situated on plot 294/1 and is for purposes of schools and the city district as well. Answer 21 is connected to this one.

  1. 7. 2018 – 11:39 SETČ

39           Can we change the location of different facilities/functional units between plot 314/1 & 315 and 294/1 (e.g.  to place caretaker appartment or visual arts class/ecological class or new hall on the plot 314/1&315)?

The Contracting Authority considers this distribution of function as ideal. Facilities directly associated with teaching should stay on plot 314/1+315 and facilities not directly associated with teaching may be situated on the plot 294/1 (See 3.7 Operation Scheme). If the participants decide for a different functional setting, this decision must be justified.

40           Can we move the location of existing sport field?


41           Can we move the location of existing sport field to the plot 294/1?


42           Do we have to design parking places for plot 314/1&315 and 294/1? If so, what should be the number of parking places?


43           What are the obligatory distances in Czech Republic or in our plot (local regulations) from the plot borders for the new buildings – with windows, without windows?

28, 29 Regulation No. 10/2016 Coll. (Prague Building Regulations)            

44           Can we change the location of both monuments on the plot 314/1 & 315?


45           Can we cut the existing trees or should we preserve them?

 It is clear that existing trees have value. It is up to participants’ decision whether to preserve them or not.

46           What is the level of underground water in both plots? Is it possible then to build some facilities/functional units underground?

Both plots are situated in historical flood area. After 2002 the city built anti-flood walls, so Troja is safe now, but the underground water level is high.

  1. 7. 2018 – 12:07 SEČ

48           The hall of 600m2 is to be used as auditorium. Please clarify if this is a stage & inclined seating arrangement or a level floor with flexible seating (event space) arrangement.

Level floor with flexible seating (event space) arrangement; As is written in Competition Brief in article 3.8: “Contracting Authority … prefer a new … shared auditorium – a multifunctional space that would house city social events.“

  1. 7. 2018 – 14:21 SEČ

49           What is the exact destination of the large hall (600 m2) that should be placed in the plot 294/1? Should it be designed for exhibitions only (flat floor, daylight, no stage), or for concerts, theather plays (auditorium type floor, stage, backstage, cloak rooms and sanitary rooms for actors./musicians ) ?  How many people will be using this space (100 – 150 – 400 ?) Should it be totally independent from other school activities or will it be also used by primary and grammar schools?

See answer 48.

            The Contracting Authority wishes hall for 250 persons.

            The large hall should be connected witch cafeteria and it´s facilities. As is written in the Brief, the Primary school, the Secondary school and the City district are going to use it. That is why it should be independent on the regular schooling. Minimum backstage for performers is appropriate.

50           Can we design urban furniture or greenery outside plots 314/1 & 315 and 294/1, especially on the road and on the pavement between these plots, along Trojska Street?

Main task is to solve and organized the whole program on both plots.

8. 8. 2018 – 13:18 SELČ
54 Is it allowed to submit two booklets representing the two sites? With the amount of information produced from both sites, it seems a 15 page booklet won’t be able to convey our design intension.
Please submit one booklet. To have the whole Contest Entry in one Booklet is clearer for the jury. It is expected to be 15 pages long, not limited to 15 pages.

8. 8. 2018 – 15:59 SELČ
55 About HALL 1: are you sure about 600 m2? HALL for 600 people has floor plan 600 m2 if sittings in lines. For 240 people is 300 m2 enough. Some examples from Prague to explain the statement.
For Contracting Authority is important to have multifunctional hall for 250 people (answer 49). Said area is a rough estimate. Follow the required Aula capacity. Please keep in mind that Contracting Authority wants to hold also other events as Annual Dancing Balls (answer 48).

12. 8. 2018 – 16:52 SELČ
56 Are we going to be eliminate if we place cafeteria on plot 315?
Placing the cafeteria on the plot 315 is no reason for elimination. It is not a part of Competition Condition. The Contracting Authority is saying in the point 3.6 of the Competition Brief, that:

„The cafeteria is moved to plot 294/1. … The cafeteria could also be used for catering for various events held in the new big auditorium, which should be also newly set up on the 294/1 plot. …“

And in point 3.8:

„The Contracting Authority thinks that the most suitable solution is to move the entire space-intensive operation (cafeteria) into a new building.“

Placing of the cafeteria t is up to contestant decision. The Contracting Authority wish is clear.

14. 8. 2018 –11:38 SELČ
59 Is it possible to desing cafeteria and big Hall as one shared space?

            It would be good if these two spaces, cafeteria and hall on plot 294/1, to work in parallel – It may happen to be that the pupils are on the lunch and there is another event going on in the hall.

18. 08. 2018 11:23 SELČ
60 From the operation scheme in 3.7, how many offices are intended for primary school teachers on plot 314/1+315?

There is only one “office“ for primary school teachers, it is called „staffroom“ in the brief: “The intention of the school management is to create a fully-fledged staffroom for 10-15 teachers with a storage for supplies and teaching aids that are used regularly.” Competition Brief 3.4, paragraph 3, page 5


61 please we need more explanations to question 39. Are the intensions of the contracting authority to have all the grammar school classes situated at plot 314/1&315 together with the primary school and facilities not associated with teaching be situated on plot 294/1?

Yes, as is written in the Competition Brief. Primary school and Grammar school should be independent on each other, situated on plot 214/1+315 based on Contracting Authority wish.

62 From question 34, If the Primary school is expecting up to 180 pupils, Grammar school up to 300, do the contracting authority intend having 480 pupil on plot 314/1&315? Can the Grammar school classes be distributed on the old and new sites?

Distribution of the Grammar school classes is up to contestant decision. The Contracting Authority wish is clear.

68 Dear organisation,
we would like to ask you about a prize limit… Do you mean 50 milions CZK or EUR? Because we think that if it is in CZK it is very underestimated.

The expected investment value is in CZK.

22. 08. 2018 18:39 SELČ
69 Do we have to stict to regulation on plot 294/1 mention in answer 25?

There will probably be a change in the land plan, so the KPP and KZ coefficients will probably change as well. The exceedance of the coefficients is up to contestants decision.

27. 08. 2018 16:11 SELČ
70 I would like to know also where is the Underground Club in the basement to create a separate entrance. (See pdf)

27. 08. 2018 15:31 SELČ
71 Hello,

In the grammar school, next to the classrooms there is always a cabinet. Do we have to keep this distribution? Are this cabinets the offices for the teachers (brief 3.5)? If not, the offices teacher have to be close each other or has to be divided one for classroom?

Cabinet is an office for Grammar school´s teachers. There is no need to keep this distribution base od Additional information 2: answer 18 – minutes from the site visit, paragraph 22, page 3:
“Teacher’s offices were established by diminishing classrooms. They are accessible through classrooms. Each office should have its independent entrance from the hall or corridor “

and answers 20:
“No, the distribution of Offices is not suitable. Especially Offices with entrance through class are not suitable. Every office should have it´s 
own entrance from the hall/corridor. There is no need to associate them.”


28. 08. 2018 7:47 SELČ
72 Please can you clarify if it is understandable to relocate the pc rooms from their present position to meet the new separation of both schools (Primary & Grammar)

74 Changing rooms are now one single space for each school. Is this a preference to be applied to the future arrangement? Can the changing rooms be designed in a different way that brings them closer to the classrooms?

It depends on the particular design. The primary school wishes pupils to enter the main operation in slippers. To bring changing rooms for clothes closer to the classroom is possible.

75 Is it possible to clarify the uses and therefore the requirements of the Hall n.2 of the primary school? Is there any special requirement about its space, about its perimeter, or about the possibility to close it from the rest of the operation?

Hall No.2 for primary school should have similar dimension as current Hall as is written in 3.4 and 3.7. It would be good to have a possibility to close it from the rest of operation since Hall No.2 should serve also gatherings and performances.

76 One question occurred to us that in the competition brief, there is a discription: “School management appreciates the size and location of the principal and secretary office currently on the first floor to the right of the main staircase.” does it mean that we could not move or modify the current principal and secretary office?

This sentence doesn´t mean that you could not move or modify the current principal and secretary office. It just means that school management appreciates the current size and location.


Aim of the competition

The purpose of the competition is to optimise the existing facilities and to supplement their capacity according to the needs of the management. Separation of the primary school and the grammar schools is particularly important.Both must have a separate, barrier-free entrance logically oriented towardspublic space.In addition to the current plot no. 314/1 (labelled as no. 315 including the building) the school can also newly utilise plot no. 294/1 belonging to the city district, where it is possible to place facilities not directly associated with teaching (dining room, assembly hall, offices for the school psychologist and prevention officer).The city district would like to use this new construction as a community centre, where various ceremonies and cultural events of the city district can also be held.All proposed facilities must have adequate sanitary amenities.The Contracting Authority expects to invest CZK 50 million excluding VAT.This amount does not include the price of equipping the interior.The entry should pay close attention to the design in terms of both the capital and the operational budgets.

The Čechova School is located at the intersection of the streets Na Kazance and Trojská next to the Kazanka estate. The building currently houses a first-level primary school and an eight-year grammar school. Such space-sharing has been common over the history of this school since its establishment in 1872, as well as in the life of this building that was ceremonially opened in 1928. For instance, after WWII, the building was home to a primary school and a kindergarten, alongside a library and an office of the city hall. The 1926 memorial to Jan Hus, by the sculptor Vilém Amort is an important listed monument on the site.The existing building has become insufficient due to the expansion of the facilities: for example, the staff rooms are small, the locker rooms not optimal, and the capacity of the cafeteria is not sufficient. Moreover, the two school schedules overlap, and this is not ideal.Plot no. 294/1 is currently used by the Troja Sokol as a caravan camp.
