centre and being located on the city’s ring road, thus providing an easy access for car-born as well as foot traffic." said Martin Žížala, a partner at Cushman & Wakefield.
The architecture of the centre combines the structure, layout and character of the old brewery with a modern design of the leading Czech studio Šafer Hájek Architekti. Two main malls of the centre, dominated by the old brewery’s chimney, will be overarched by a glass roof, which will bring in natural light to the malls. The combination of the contrast between modern and tradition parts of the building and the presence of natural light in the centre, will help visitors orientate themselves and will create a captivating shopping experience. The heart of the Breda & Weinstein centre will be the object of the former brewing house with original brewing equipment, where a large new stylish cafe will be created. A restaurant with a microbrewery will also be present in the project.
Achieving an energy-efficient design, which would save a significant part of the consumption of energy for heating and cooling over the year compared to the current standards, will be another significant challenge for the developer. To accomplish this goal, the centre will be for example using the most up to date energy-efficient technology for ventilation/cooling/heating and will employ practices such as overnight natural ventilation of the malls through chimney/atrium effect, presence of numerous water and green spaces or negotiations with the tenants regarding using energy-efficient lighting.
