Biotope at Honětice is a modern resort nestled into an old agricultural machinery garage in Honětice, Czech Republic. Architects Přikryl Prokš reconstructed the old structure with gorgeous concrete ribbed ornamental ceiling, and reused the old brick masonry to maintain the 1907 building's authenticity. The space opens up towards a swimming pool that has a natural water filtration system to create an informal modern area where people can get refreshments and enjoy the surrounding view.
The garage is situated on an old farm that was once part of a nearby castle in Zdislavice. After World War II, the estate was nationalized and severely damaged. Two main barns were completely demolished and garages were used as spaces for agricultural machinery. Over the course of five years, the buildings were reconstructed and transformed into a modern agro-tourism site.
The artificial pond located just a few steps from the facility has a natural look thanks to its walls, which are light green in color. The entire estate is wheelchair accessible and offers sporting goods, shower rooms, baby changing rooms and a café. The guest house offers six large quadruple family rooms with separate bathrooms. A restaurant with 45 seating places and a fully equipped kitchen is located on the ground floor.
