Jury auxiliary bodies
The land for the construction of the new administrative center of Lesy České republiky is located on the southeastern outskirts of the city of Hradec Králové. There is a forest belt, several dozens of meters wide, which separates the complex from the road no. E442 / 35, leading to Brno. There are wide municipal forests on the other side of the road, which are to some extent used by Hradec citizens for recreation.
The territory relevant for the competition participants is delimited from the west, north and east by a fence of the Directorate of Lesy České republiky, and from the south by the Přemyslova street and subsequent residential houses. On the west, one of the buildings of the complex known as "Silvia" is directly adjacent to the building of the Municipal forests of Hradec Králové. They share entrance areas, which are separate from one another, but architecturally unified and structurally interconnected. On the south, the complex is delimited by the Přemyslova street.
The urban plan of the city locates civic amenities in this area, which are surrounded from the west by a large area of low-rise residential buildings, typical for the larger part of the New Hradec Králové. In the south, there are smaller residential areas with multi-storey buildings, and in the southeast there are areas with technical equipment. The area is surrounded from the north and east by recreational forests. The national significance of the complex of Lesy České republiky increases the importance of this location. It is an important administrative center of a state enterprise managing the largest forestry assets in the Czech Republic.
The land plots of Lesy České republiky headquarters currently hold an office building with a canteen and a dining area, a building known as "Silvia" with a conference room, archive, several offices and a dormitory and there are also buildings used as a warehouse and a garage. There are also sports facilities, several parking lots and inner roads.
The complex is connected to all necessary utilities - sewer, water supply, power lines, gas and telecommunications.
