This project excites us very much! Adult couple, whose children are already adults and living by themselves. The future Lady of the house lived for a long time in an impressive landscape of Scotland. Master of the house is a typical north-bohemian, athlete with a direct view. House in a small village Krásná (means Beautiful in English) not far from the Černá studnice and Jablonec's want to build for the pleasure at site they carefully picked.
The site is apart from a village. It is located at the end of the path in a meadow between two forests. It is the lonely place with just one neighbor. There's a small house and next to it is driketa (little glass factory), the usual combination of glass and costume jewellery, which you can see hundreds of them all around.
We've designed the House with a small footprint, which was inspired by the original modest house. The entire casting from the outside is made of concrete. The interior is handled smoothly. It has three residential floors. We designed it to engage in a rugged environment and it is based on on the experience of its future inhabitants. Before the first meeting with clients, we were a little worried about how our thoughts would be taken. The most surprising was the reaction: "Oh, the roof is also made of concrete, if this is so, I like it very much."
The object is entered from the North into the middle floor. There is a room with views of the Hill to the Northeast and a kitchen in the exceeding space. The gallery above the kitchen on the floor above is used as a study and a room fot the guests. Each of the floors are connected by a spiral staircase. If you descend down the stairs you get to the private part of the House where there is a master bedroom and bath with sauna. This floor has direct contact with garden. Interior of the House is covered with white wood. There is a minimum of furniture everything has its place. Creates a peace of mind.
Its really enjoyable that the House is so small and yet contains so many generous spaces and decisions. The work of architect is freed by understanding and the confidence of investors, who are not stressed by a small problems and let him create an interesting and inspiring places in a house.
