00280 / plešivec centre
location: 5. května Street, Český Krumlov-Plešivec, South Bohemian Region, Czech Republic
client: MEXUM
project: 2011–
floor area: 1788 m2
built-up space: 12014 m3

Plešivec is a part of Český Krumlov on the left bank of the Vltava River, south of the historic centre; it consists of a historical outskirts and a homonymous housing development. The multifunctional centre is situated next to the river, on the site of a former paper-mill where fragments of historic development blend with panel houses. The centre is designed as a cluster made of several free-standing objects: a two-storey multifunctional house containing three individual retail units in the ground floor and offices in the upper floor, a one-storey café with a view over the river and a supermarket. The volume of the supermarket is articulated by pitched roofs in dark fiber-cement slates. The whole construction is thus inspired by the form of the original objects referring to the industrial past of the location.
