The practice of Vladimir Balda Architekt was commissioned in 2011 to rebuild the square in Frydlant, Czech Republic, making the public space more open so that different activities can take place here.

Three types of paving tiles were used and two stone types to create a pattern which defines each space of the square and, aside from the parking lot, there aren’t any barriers. A fountain with the statue of Albrecht von Wallenstein stands as the dominant element in the square and there is a silhouette of Wallenstein on a granite pedestal a few meters away to be reflected into the water.

The square has an axis with the Kostelni Street dividing it into two halves and the divided square can be used for two different purposes at the same time, such as fairs or concerts. The central square is defined by a different, darker basalt tile choice and new public illumination was installed as well as information panels, benches bike stands and many more additions.
