The A8000 studio, led by Martin Krupauer and Pavel Kvintus, has been one of the leading Czech architectural studios for more than three decades. Currently, the studio employs sixty architects, engineers and specialists based in Prague, České Budějovice and Brno. This allows us to specialize in projects that are demanding in their scope and complexity in the Czech Republic and beyond. We also operate in Slovakia and Canada, have long worked with foreign studios as local architects and are always looking for opportunities to expand into other countries. Our projects are characterised by authentic architecture with a strong artistic concept, but the spatial, social and economic context of the design is equally important to us. In this complexity lies the essence of the studio’s vision.

In 2020 the studio was awarded the title of Building of the Year for the project of the Sedlčany Community Centre and in 2022 the honorary award of Finalist of the Czech Architecture Award for the reconstruction of Hall Z at the České Budějovice Exhibition Centre. The studio’s other notable projects include the architectural design of the Forum Karlín multifunctional hall in Prague, the reconstruction of the concert hall of the South Bohemian Philharmonic in České Budějovice, the Martin Shopping Gallery in Slovakia, and the reconstruction of train stations in Pilsen and České Budějovice.
