Jindřichův Hradec – brewery conversion into cultural center
Atelier Girsa, Department of Monument Care, Faculty of Architecture, Czech technical university in Prague
The castle brewery was established in the 16th century but closed in the 20th century leaving behind a settlement of poetic ruins and historical remanescence.
Nowadays, the brewery building is in a state of deterioration and semi abandonment after a fire that destroyed an important part of its structure, some of which belonged to the renaissance epoque. Old photos show the important connection between the brewery process and the river nearby , as well as its production potential and architectural language.
The brewery has a highly valuable location between the castle, the historical center and local museums which would allow it to be an ideal meeting place for all inhabitants of Jindrichuv Hradec; the new social center.
