Richly varied, architecture in Czech Republic captures the country’s long history in stone – from Gothic and Renaissance architecture to Baroque, Cubism, Brutalism, and Postmodernism. Over the past couple of decades, contemporary architects have greatly enriched Czech Republic’s latest architectural chapter. On this page, you can see exactly what this means. Here, you can browse through some of the most imaginative and bold as well as avant-garde architecture in Czech Republic. Whether informed by tradition or inspired by abstract concepts, these projects are distinctly Czech.
Our selection includes everything from cabins in the woods and houses built among rolling hills to urban coffee shops, wine bars, hotels, art galleries, and even churches. Among residential projects, designs include modern takes on vernacular architecture and monolithic structures that re-imagine the rustic barn. Even more traditional dwellings with terracotta roofs and simple white walls feature creative details like expansive frameless windows and contemporary interiors. In old city centers, wine bars and coffee shops welcome customers in mesmerizing spaces. Sculptural concrete elements, metal detailing, and colorful accents combine in sophisticated designs. Color becomes a crucial element in these projects, including a monumental church with vibrant colored glass windows.
Nature is a central part of many Czech dwellings. From summer houses built in woodlands to homes located in rural areas or structures set in urban environments, nature makes its way inside living spaces or public areas. For example, a yoga studio and art gallery boasts a lush interior garden designed to be self-sufficient. Other houses have glazed walls that make nature a part of the interior. Sustainability is also an important aspect of architecture in Czech Republic. Here you can find houses with green roofs that disappear in the landscape or dwellings designed with both environmentally friendly materials and green technology.
