GeddesKaňka Ltd. was established in December, 2007, by its Managing Director, Tomáš Kaňka, together with his partner, Clark Geddes, the head of Geddes Architects in the UK.
The relationship between the two partners began when Tomáš moved to London to join Geddes Architects in 2005. During this time he was involved in several international projects, including the design of a major extension to the Olympia Shopping Centre in Brno, Czech Republic, during the period 2005-2007. Such was the success of this project that the decision was made to open a local office which would be a partnership between Tomáš and Clark Geddes, and in January 2008 the doors opened on GeddesKaňka Ltd., with Tomáš heading up a team of architects and civil engineers.
With its unique ability to call on expertise and international know-how from the London office, but at the same time offering in-depth local knowledge, GeddesKaňka has quickly made a name for itself as one of the leading architect offices in Prague, specializing in architecture, urbanism, interior design and private development projects.
Now based in Tomkova, Prague 5, the GeddesKaňka team is a rapidly expanding group of young and dynamic architects and civil engineers and its completed and ongoing portfolio includes several high profile projects, not least the complex and potentially spectacular Zlatý Lihovar development in Smíchov, Prague 5.

After studying at the CVUT Faculty of Architecture in the Czech Republic and at University in Graz, Austria, Tomas travelled to the UK to join the London firm of Geddes Architects. This move led to the foundation of Geddes Architects Prague in 2007, due, in no small part, to Tomas's successful cooperation with Clark Geddes, the owner of Geddes Architects in the UK. Geddes Architects Prague subsequently changed its name to GeddesKaňka, which was seen as a step towards strengthening Tomas's position in the real estate world.
The Prague office of GeddesKanka has a team of talented architects and civil engineers that take a complex approach to all of its projects. The overall aim is to work with clients in order to provide them with top class design and engineering services that deliver their commercial aspirations through the team's skills in master planning, architecture and interior design.

Clark has spent more than 30 years working as an architect in the UK and all over the world. He has enormous experience in a wide range of disciplines and has been involved in the design and build of just about every aspect of commercial architecture. He feels that he is now in the enviable position of not only running a successful firm in London, but also spending time in Prague with a team of young and highly talented architects and designers, (as well as some old friends), who are pushing him and the business onto even greater achievements.
