Project description

The Strizkov station, designed by Patrik Kotas, Atelier designu a architektury, is one of the new stations of the constantly growing Prague Metro network. The completely glazed building is pleasing because of its aesthetic structure and the technical implementation. Above the hall structure (160 m x 42 m), the roof construction was hung on the main vault using two different arched rod systems. The first system, with short bars performs the static function, while the second system with long rods incorporates special springs to reduce tension in the supporting structure. The façade was executed utilizing the highly insulated FW 50+.HI mullion-transom façade from Schüco.
