Modernising and extending IGY

This project involved the reconstruction and extension of the IGY Centre in České Budějovice, regenerating and modernising the existing centre while constructing a new building called IGY2, designed by local architects Atelier 8000. Two skyways link the buildings across Pekárenská Street.

Chapman Taylor’s Prague studio is architect on the regeneration project, completely remodelling the original IGY building to provide it with a contemporary ambience.

Providing a comprehensive retail offer

Two floors of new shops, restaurants, a nine-screen cinema, a food court and other facilities extend the existing commercial area from 8,000m² to more than 29,000m², all served by 700 parking spaces.
