We are a design office engaged in land planning, town planning and architecture in its broadest sense, i.e. from research to designing and implementation.

The architectural firm was established by Jiří Knesl and Jakub Kynčl in 2001. It was transformed from a free association of architects into a limited company KNESL + KYNČL Ltd. in early 2003.
In January 2016 Jan Weiss and Bohuš Zoubek became partners of the office and the name of the company changed to knesl kyncl architects Ltd.

The firm is based in Brno, Czech Republic and it employs c. 20 architects and other collaborators. On a long-term basis, the firm cooperates with a team of specialised companies to ensure success even with the most comprehensive tasks.

For our work we are using products of Bentley (MicroStation XM), Adobe CS3 (Photoshop CS3, Illustrator CS3, InDesign CS3, Flash CS3, Acrobat 8 Professional), SketchUp 6 a Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook).

SITES OF ARCHITECTURAL EXAMPLE / DEFIANCE
The exhibition and publication, 'Sites of Architectural Example / Defiance', deal with progressive buildings designed in the period between 1990 and 2013 on the territory of the Czech Republic in villages and towns with a population of less than 20,000. It is apparent from the title that architecture can be both an example to various local governments or private entities, as well as be perceived as a manifestation of courage that results in the strengthening or even fundamental transformation of the identity of a certain location.
Also some of our projects are presented here: TJ Sokol Křižanovice [00016], the renovation of st. Roch chapel [00109], the Rychleby centre for ecology [00200] and the terminal station Nové Město na Moravě [00210].
