2021 WIN Awards entry: Social Hall in Brewery Kocour - conversion - DOMYJINAK architects

Social Hall in Brewery Kocour - conversion by DOMYJINAK architects is an entry in the Cultural venues category of the 2021 WIN Awards

The subject of the proposal is a conversion of the former ceramics space from 1912 into a social hall. The building has a progressive reinforced concrete structure and in 2007 brewing beer with the logo of Tomcat (Kocour) was started.

The main idea of the solution is the rehabilitation of the technical monument and its introduction in a new technical and operating function.

In the original ceramics space there was a pair of damaged "H" columns, which was replaced by rods - a free space for a hall with a capacity of 250 persons was created.The space of the hall is two-storey with an inserted gallery, a dance floor, a space for music production.The hall is accessible through the foyer where a steel footbridge made of glass-concrete blocks with a light ramp illuminating the bottle wall with the Kocour logo was installed.The interior of the hall is materially designed in an industrial atmosphere - concrete structures are completed with black iron galleries, railing from wire mesh, staircase with perforated Kocour logo.

The floor is made of fireclay brick, smooth concrete and oak parquet and tear plate on the gallery. In the designed space there are two bars with different atmosphere - the taproom is accentuated by "endless barley field", the upper bar is a digital display of beer bottles. The ceilings of both bars consist of suspended beer coasters of local beers. The hall is illuminated by factory windows and factory lighting, complemented by an orientation system with an industrial yellow-black hatch motif.
