. Holešov's industrial zone parcel concept was ment to facilitate exclusively production islands, so that the industrial land usage could be maximized. Still, to provide optimal functioning of the zone, some of the border sectors had to be reserved for transportation of goods and materials,. The urban concept suggested also a services centre including accomodation, catering, spaces for visitors and some basic civic facilities.

. The centre itself does not include any of the zone's industrial production, so it's reserved space should take as less of the zone's area as possible. Traffic and pedestrian communications are part of all urban structures and are essentially a free space. Using the aviable volume above the main communication led to the creations of howering civic spaces overlooking the zone. Each cell volume represents different kind of common spaces. The body of four cells is tightly gripped together by strip arches, which emerge from pedestrian walkways, continuing along the traffic road and penetrating the structure on different levels. These pedestrian bridges create an essential connestion between the lower zone and upper services centre.

. Construction of each cell is split in two major parts. The diagonal structured shell consisting of repeating strip components and bracing side facades. The structure is covered in textile membranes and ETFE inflatable pads, because of the material's low weight.
