Madeta, the largest processor of milk in the Czech Republic, wanted the new Madeta Akademie to create a clear visual identity for the company’s premises, invest in thermal insulation and sustainability and optimise synergistic use of the existing buildings. They wanted a modern building complex with a touch of industrial atmosphere, without completely abandoning the existing architectural structures.
No easy task for the architects of +arch from Budweis, who had to work with rooms on varying levels and very specific space requirements within an existing collection of buildings. Some façades and windows were to be retained, which involved breaking up spatial structures or installing insulation.
Elsewhere, new building elements were constructed. The client wanted the complex to have overall clarity, from the inside and outside.
