Hutě Koněv – Ore reservoirs

new life to an abandoned structure that awaits its rediscovery

spring 2020 scale: medium AU: ATVZ, ATV KA: Master

As can be seen from the regulation plan of Kladno, the ore reservoirs, by their location and appearance, form a certain center of the Koněv steelworks. The monumental building is gradually overgrown with vegetation and despite the danger (deep openings and rusty reinforced concrete structure) attracts many visitors. Access was possible both from the original suspended railway, where the ore was bound, and also directly from the field. 

The design should provide functional use of the building and its reconstruction while preserving the industrial character.
