SKØG Urban Hub is a multipurpose space hosting activities as bar, coffee roasters and cultural events. It is located in the ground floor of an old secession building located in Brno city centre, the second largest city in Czech Republic.
We removed all unnecessary layers covering hidden potential to find a 6-meters high ceiling, original flooring in some areas, concrete ceiling, traditional brick walls, wooden and steel frames.
Due to budget and tight schedule the additions were reduced to the minimum creating an undefined space were people is the main focus. The choice of materials – wood, metal, brick are complementing the place original raw character and create an industrial atmosphere.
The ground floor layout is open to allow high flexibility and only defined by the location of bar, kitchen and the podium for cultural actions.This area can adapt to the changing atmospheres along the day, from quiet morning coffee to night drinks and live music.
