Our
values

  1. Seeing to quality
    Our ambition is to raise quality standards for the Czech construction industry. We are convinced that quality and practicality should never be compromised. We have zero tolerance of fumblers and botched building work. Ensuring compliance with the right procedures is a matter of honour for us.
  2. Not afraid of unconvential solutions
    We are not constrained by outdated doctrines or prejudices. We don’t waste time thinking up excuses. Instead, we listen to our clients and do our best to implement their ideas and fulfil their requirements.



  3. We’ve designed it, we’re able to build it
    What we enjoy most is providing our clients with complex services that include everything from designing an exterior to honing the most subtle details of an interior. We’ll be happy to assist you while your new home is being built to ensure its smooth completion.
  4. We believe in fair play
    It’s an extremely challenging thing for architects and clients to cooperate without knowing each other well. That’s why we always start by meeting in person and discussing your as well as our expectations. There’s no bluffing or promises that cannot be fulfilled. Fair play is the defining aspect of what we do – whether you are a client or a partner. Our conditions are clearly defined and transparent.

Established in 1994, Univers projekt focused on designing and constructing buildings for both the state and the private sector. In 2012, Tomáš Valeský and Zdeněk Kočí, new partners and professionals in their fields, joined the company and refreshed its mission and vision. We had different expertise and experience, but shared a common goal, which was to focus on end clients. To that end, we started to design and deliver turn-key residences, homes and interiors.

Testimonials

We were looking to have our flat refurbished and came across Univers projekt on the internet. Initially, we were only interested in having the interior of our flat redesigned and rendered, but as we were very busy at the time, we ended up asking them to deliver the renovation works too. Univers projekt managed to refurbish our flat to our exact specifications and within a deadline we had agreed upon earlier.
Mrs Hana Novotná, flat renovation, Brno
A nearly 6-month renovation is never completely hassle-free. While a range of complications may always occur including those that are caused by the client, what really matters is how the supplier is able to face them. I am confident in saying that the gentlemen from Univers projekt were fair and straight with us throughout the process, and I hope that’s what they think about me too. I have never questioned or regretted my decision to ask them to renovate my house. Quite on the contrary, actually. I am perfectly satisfied with the result both in terms of architecture and construction as such, and I have already recommended Univers projekt to a number of my friends and family members.
Mr Ladislav Obrovský, home renovation, Brno-Žebětín
UNIVERS projekt designed and built the interior of our health food store. We are more than satisfied with the results – the shop looks just amazing. We would highly recommend their services and are perfectly sure that the number of their satisfied clients will grow.
Mrs Lucie Ondrášková, Parkfit.cz health food store interior design
I needed to furnish a new build flat I had bought. And as specialized work should be done by a professional, I decided to hire an architect. Three years have passed since then and I still appreciate all the smart details and high-quality work. While visitors praise the look, I also enjoy how practical and user-friendly everything is. Granted, I would have been able to furnish my flat somehow, but I would have never come up with all those perfect details: location of sockets, appliances, cupboards, wardrobes etc. Mr. Valeský was incredibly helpful and professional and I highly recommend his services.
Mr Jakub Talaš, design and delivery of an interior of a flat in Brno
My expectation was to receive an interesting flat interior design from UP. The solution was truly exciting and provided on time. I was surprised by how creative the entire UP team were and how closely they were able to cooperate. Communication with Tomáš Valeský, who coordinated the project, was an absolute joy. UP did an amazing job, I highly recommend their services.
Mrs Miroslava Vágnerová, flat interior design and delivery, Brno
We asked UP to help us to renew expired building permits and update design documents for a number of homes. Not only did they fulfil each and every one of my expectations. I also enjoyed working with them a lot because of fair play and a friendly approach to work. It was an amazing experience to see how talented the members of the UP team were and how closely they were able to cooperate. All the deadlines were kept, communication was hassle-free. All of these give rise to a company culture every client of UP is going to love.

AN OWNER’S WISH TO HAVE A DESIGNER APARTMENT BECAME REALITY

AN OWNER’S WISH TO HAVE A DESIGNER APARTMENT BECAME REALITY

A developer supplied to our client an apartment that only had finished floors, interior doors, tiles, cladding, and basic equipment. The architect’s job was to design a modern, practical and user-friendly interior. We managed to finish the entire build within less than six months of a preliminary discussion with the client.

PARENTS’ FLAT BECAME A NEW HOME FOR A YOUNG COUPLE

PARENTS’ FLAT BECAME A NEW HOME FOR A YOUNG COUPLE

A 3-bedroom flat was in need of thorough renovation – floor components had to be replaced, new electrical wiring, boiler and heating elements needed to be installed, walls had to be plastered and painted. The client and the architect found common ground as early as the design phase and were able to come up with a practical and cosy as well as unconventional and timeless design. The renovation works were divided into two phases. It took us about five weeks to finish the interior design while the actual renovation took just under three months.

A FLAT FOR A YOUNG COUPLE FEATURES SIMPLE EQUIPMENT AND BOLD-COLOURED STRIPES

A 2-room new build flat in Brno was in need of new residents as well as some vibrant finishing touches. The clients, a young couple, wanted a simple and modern design that’s spiced up by bold colours. The entire refurbishment including the design and the manufacturing of bespoke lacquered furniture took about two months.
