Located in Prague’s Andel District, Manifesto Market Andel is an urban infill project activating an underutilized gap in the urban fabric. The new urban meeting spot was designed by Chybik + Kristof Architects & Urban Designers for Manifesto Market, a hospitality brand focused on turning neglected urban areas into revitalized neighbourhoods.
Drawing inspiration from the courtyard typology specific to Prague, the project comprises a series of courtyards, each with a unique concept for furniture, lighting and incorporation of greenery. A blue scaffolding structure unites and gathers the different courtyards beneath.
The mass of the project completes the building block, while the public nature of the market creates an active streetfront, engaging passersby-by.
A philosophy of reuse is central to the project with modular building components that incorporate aluminium cladding, lighting, and furniture pieces previously used in other projects.
Further to this, the market operates year-round and is fueled by clean energy from renewable sources. The modular nature of the units means they will themselves be suitable for reuse in future locations.
