Obnova is a small building company focused on restoration and revitalization of historical buildings. By our legend “We Care on the Monuments” we try to point out the fragile boundary between destruction and sensitive conservation as well as presentation of the monument’s nature. The company use traditional technologies with local and harmless materials as lime, stone, cork, straw, wool, hemp, wood and others.
Obnova in 2001 responded to almost zero information in the area of cultural heritage by establishing the website Obnova.sk. The Internet Magazine was virtually the only online information source in the former Czech Republic and Slovakia until the arrival of social networks. The operation of the portal has saved several dozen monuments by providing appropriate information at the right time. For a number of years, this project has also become a meeting place for the shaping castle community. It has created an extensive database of information on cultural heritage for its time.
Our representatives of the new arising Building Heritage Centre – Centrálka in Banská Štiavnica attended the 20-day course “Prince’s Foundation Summer School” where they were able to extend experience that will help our startup center, involving a workshop for the needs of heritage conservation and organizing courses of traditional crafts, incubator for artisans, a conference hall and a museum of historic building elements.
As a community of people in the field of heritage conservation and traditional crafts, we carry out courses and trainings for more than 15 years and run an independent online magazine of cultural heritage Obnova.sk. With the belief that a commercial entity may carry out socially useful and selfless activities, despite different community setting around us, recently we have got covered by the company Obnova s.r.o. to help, especially in difficult beginnings of the project. Based on these activities, we have acquired in 2016 Pontis Foundation award Via Bona – Good community partner.
