Invitation

Česká spořitelna is pleased to offer an open call opportunity to European architects to participate in an architecture competition for the best design for its new Headquarters in Prague.

The new Headquarters should create a new, open and innovative collaborative workspace for our employees that would at the same time interconnect customers, employees and the public in general. It should also provide a strong visible sign of our purpose and should help to develop the district and also bring prosperity to the community. The new Headquarters should be part of the commercial part of the Smíchov City project developed by Sekyra Group.

More than 140 years ago, in 1874, Spořitelna Česká, the predecessor of Česká spořitelna, organised an architectonic competition for the Rudolfinum gallery and concert hall in Prague. Rudolfinum was completed at the cost of Spořitelna Česká in 1885 and since that time this building has been an indispensable part of Prague’s cultural life and has also become one of the city’s landmarks.
The new Česká spořitelna headquarters should bring to the Smíchov City and to the City of Prague high quality architecture that will serve for decades, not only to Česká spořitelna, but also to the community as a whole and, similarly to Rudolfinum, significantly contribute to the creation of a new modern part of the city.

Česká spořitelna warmly invites architects to participate in this competition. We will consider all applications and will be looking for the most suitable partner who will be able to cooperate with Česká spořitelna and the Sekyra Group on this ambitious project.
