  • Výměník1 is a cultural centre located in the housing estate Šumava in the city of České Budějovice. It is a building of a heat exchanger station, one half of which still blows hot water into the radiators of the surrounding panel houses. In 2019 we expanded the original function of the heat exchanger station and transformed it into a cultural space, Výměník1. It also houses the non-for-profit organization Kredance. We have decided to keep genius loci of this industrial building by maintaining the minimalist construction design of the heat exchanger station, and adding only elements needed for a cultural space to function properly.
  • Výměník1 is a platform for contemporary performing arts in České Budějovice focusing on new theatre, physical theatre, contemporary dance, and new circus. In addition to theatre performances we also provide arts residencies of the above-mentioned genres, organize movement courses and workshops, and other events such as concerts, lectures, film screenings, farmers markets, flea markets etc.


  • An open airy space (12 × 12.5 m) divided into two floors (6.5 × 12 m of an open space and 6 × 12 m of a space with toilettes and a bar/kitchen) and a completely enclosed basement that could be blacked out and partially soundproofed.


  • Accommodation is available directly in the Výměník1 for up to 4 persons, more people on agreement.


  • In the space we have our own sound equipment, projector, microphone and other equipment can be rented as needed.
