Inspirational reconstruction: Excursion to DEPO Business Parking

DEPO-Business-parking-min.jpg
The DEPO building is a former administrative and production complex of the Chemoplast company. The building from the late 1960s is undergoing reconstruction under the baton of Fandament Architects.
At the time of the greatest glory, CHEVA toys such as table football, but also plastic components for the Ještěd transmitter, were produced here. The total usable floor area is 5,500 m2. The aim is to transform the entire complex into a post-industrial, yet modern low-energy building, which will be an alternative  to classic administrative office parks within Brno. At present, there are 60 companies renting both office and production space, warehouses and commercial  premises. In 2018, the reconstruction of the former production hall began, with the aim of building real industrial studios, designed especially for creative professions of architects, graphic artists, photographers, etc. Visitors will look into industrial offices, learn about the building's history, reconstruction and other plans.
