The competition was held in the Czech language only.

The town of Pelhřimov announced an architectural competition for a new accommodation building, the design of the cladding of the adjacent ice rink and the design of the adjacent public areas.
The new accommodation building will replace the existing Sporthotel in order to increase the standard of accommodation and thus use the existing capacity and potential of the sports complex and the town of Pelhřimov. At the same time, it will also add other necessary functions to the complex. The new design of the shell of the ice rink building will reduce energy consumption and combine the adjacent buildings into a single unit.
The aim of the competition was to select the most suitable architectural solution designed with regard to the overall economy of the building.
