Project Description

(“Text as submitted by the Architects”)

The family house is in Moravia, in a built-up area near the river’s embankment. A quiet, stabilized zone with typical development of family houses and the requirements of future residents was the impulse for the design of a single-storey house. For the need to arrange the client’s functions and demands, the building occupies two plots.

We create a fragmented house while the roof intentionally remains compact. It overlaps the atrium, but at the same time, we deliberately cut it out somewhere. We let light into the house by using skylights and creating another dynamically changing element. The house has different nooks and atmospheres. It opens more somewhere; on the other side, it closes introvertly. 

The vestibule becomes the primary communication space of the house and divides the space into a social and residential tract. The living area and the rooms face the garden and open onto a terrace with a swimming pool. A garden house is situated on the axis of the house, which serves as a lounge and guest room or storage. We work with simple materiality, and we let stand out the structure of the house and the play of light on clean surfaces.
