Immediately after their graduation from the Faculty of Architecture of the Czech Technical University in Prague, the architects Boris Redčenkov
(1969) and Prokop Tomášek
(1969) founded the studio Atelier 69 – architekti in Cheb in 1994. In 1997, a third partner, the architect Jaroslav Wertig
(1969) joined the team. As part of the completion of the Prague residential complex Villa Park Strahov, the studio expanded its efforts in 2000 to include an office in the capitol and to add new co-workers. In 2003, the original association Atelier 69 – architekti was transformed into the limited-liability firm A69 – architekti, s.r.o.
A69 – architekti, s.r.o. has several dozen projects and realisations to its credit in various locations in the Czech Republic. Among the most significant buildings and award-winning designs are the Dr. Peták Sanatorium in Františkovy Lázně, or – in the same town – the reconstruction of the street Anglická or the connective corridor for the Hotel Pawlik (the latter realisation winning a prestigious award as part of the Grand Prix of the Czech Architects’ Association). In 1999, they won first prize in an invitation-only competition for Villa Park Strahov, later A69 won international competition for Central Park Prague and Hotel at Narodni street. A69 – architekti, s.r.o. likewise has an impressive record in the design of private houses with a definitive creative personality.
A69 architects also leads workshops and lectures both in Czech republic and abroad. They are one of the most published Czech architectural studios publishing in prestigeous magazines and websites all around the world.
