We are always primarily interested in where the house is going to be built, its relation and context. A house is not a statue; it doesn’t stand on its own. It is always a part of the city or the country. Therefore, we like to deal with a full range of architectural assignments and tasks – from urban planning to detail and from theory to implementation. Our perfect contract is, in the Bohigas’s sense, an “urban project“ – a structure, where each house intertwines with the city and where public meets private.

The architectural office was established in 2001 by Jiří Knesl and Jakub Kynčl – originally as a free association of architects that was later transformed into a limited company KNESL + KYNČL. In January 2016 Jan Weiss and Bohuš Zoubek became partners of the office and the name of the company changed to knesl kynčl architekti.

The studio is based in Brno, Czech Republic, and has a branch office in Prague. Actually it employs about 30 architects and other collaborators and on a long-term basis it cooperates with a team of specialized companies to ensure success even with the most comprehensive tasks.
