Project description:

The restoration of the house Masarykovo náměstí 21 will consist in its overall rehabilitation. At present, the house is in a very poor technical condition, almost unused, suffering from moisture, static defects, wooden structures are attacked by wood-destroying pests and fungal rot.

The house will be statically secured, windows replaced, a new roof made and the restorers will restore the wall paintings and beamed ceilings. The interior will be modified for the needs of the planned activities, the facade will be repaired.

The building will be barrier-free and a lift will be built. The building will be open to the public and will be used and visited both daily and at exceptional events.

The project includes activities that will give life to the house. The goal is to provide residents and visitors with complex links between the city, houses and their inhabitants, between history and the present. Through exhibitions, lectures, filmmaking and screenings on the social and architectural development of Jihlava, the house will actively serve to rebuild the relationship of residents to its city. The relationship, which has been repeatedly disrupted throughout history until it was fundamentally changed during the 20th century, first by the deportation of a large Jewish community and then by the displacement of the German-speaking, originally majority, population. The current representation of minorities and their involvement will be reflected in many educational and leisure activities.

The building will be operated by a funded organization of the city called Brána Jihlavy (Jihlava Gate) together with a project partner of the Documentary Film Center. These organisations will cooperate in creating if the program scheme, in the areas of education, tourism and business development. The partner from the donor state - Vestnorsk Filmsenter will provide his know-how in the field of the creative industry and will also be involved in the preparation of educational activities.
