Following the major restoration and remodelling of a series of historic buildings in Zirec, north east Bohemia, Czech Republic, GWE continue to develop the site as plans have now been drawn up for the next phase of work.
These latest images show the new phase of development for the client, St Josephs Home, which is a charity specialising in the care of patients affected by multiple sclerosis and presently provides care for some 50 residents; the latest phase of work will provide a further 45 beds. Other buildings have also been acquired by the charity, including a former school and brewery dating from the Baroque period.
The previous work included the conversion of the historic grain barn and lager beer store adjoining the brewery. These buildings together with the castle and church form a unique space in the centre of the town. Most of the buildings are listed architectural monuments.
GWE have an extensive history in the restoration and remodelling of historic buildings throughout the Czech Republic and also have specialist knowledge in the design of health care projects and specialist care homes, including the Sue Ryder Home in Prague.
