GeddesKaňka wins 6 new projects in the past 6 months

In yet another sign that the economic crisis is finally slowing down, at least in the case of the real estate market in the Czech Republic, Managing Partner and co-owner Tomáš Kaňka announces that the firm GeddesKaňka, s.r.o. has been appointed as lead architects on 6 new projects in the past 6 months, including the very high profile Zlatý Lihovar project in Smíchov.

GeddesKaňka, which operates as a partnership with Geddes Architects of the UK, has recently moved into new and modern offices in Tomkova, Smichov, and it is now actively recruiting new architects and support staff to cope with its ever-growing portfolio of projects, which, in addition to Zlatý Lihovar, includes the Opletalova mixed use scheme in Prague 1, where the next project phase has just been confirmed, and the Zlatníky-Hodkovice – Dolní Břežany masterplan.

Geddes Architects Prague was established on Kaňka’s return from the UK, where he worked for Geddes Architects between 2005 and 2007. He arrived back in his hometown of Prague in 2007, when the firm was appointed as the architects on the award-winning Olympia Shopping Mall in Brno, and such was the success of that scheme that Clark Geddes, the Managing Partner and owner of Geddes Architects took the decision to partner with Kaňka in order to set up the local office. The firm was subsequently renamed to GeddesKaňka in 2015.

Talking about the new projects, Tomáš Kaňka said: “The eight years since Geddes Architects Prague/GeddesKaňka was established have been very exciting for everyone involved. For me, it all started with our work on the Olympia Shopping Mall, which was an amazing experience, and then to be given the opportunity to set up my own firm in Prague was something I could have only dreamed about. Now, with the various new projects that we are working on, we are planning a big and quick expansion, which is very exciting for everyone concerned.”

GeddesKaňka operates a general architectural practice, which includes expertise in shopping malls, mixed-use, technology parks, and commercial and residential developments, from large-scale projects such as Zlatý Lihovar to small family houses. It also offers clients an interior design service that includes the firm’s ability to provide design furniture, lighting, and other fixtures and fittings through its
partnerships with a number of international companies, including Nordlux for lighting and Profim for furniture.

Referring to this side of the business, Kaňka says: “We want to be able to offer our clients something more than just a regular architectural practice; for the individual clients for whom we might design a family house or apartment, in particular, we think it is important for us to be able to assist them from the start of the project to the day that they move in.”

With several new projects on the horizon, in addition to those started in the past few months, Kaňka is looking to expand his business fast.
