Villa in Ostrava, Czech Republic by FAM Architekti

 
February 20th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal


The villa is located on a large hill plot with outstanding views to surrounding landscape.The volume of the building is designed as single storey as the main client requirement was a barrier free space. This horizontal concept has produced an intense spatial relationship of all the interior spaces with the surrounding garden. The exterior – interior relationship is freely based on Wrightian ideas for prerie houses, which many Czech architects have adopted subsequently.

Our design is developing this concept further. The building is located in the central zone of the plot, on its highest point, a predominantly flat plateau, so that the large garden is used generously in all aspects with all views taken into account. There is no front or rear elevation. It’s a modular concept in which interior spaces are interchanged with a series of courtyards, as we think of them, external rooms. The volume, plan and materials are a logical outcome of the position and orientation of the house.

Materials used are left in their natural full-bodied rustical appearance, supporting the concept of a countryside villa. In principle all vertical structure is made of insulated cley blocks rendered with natural stucco. Horizontal structure is of exposed reinforced concrete. Structure and finishes flow freely from interior to exterior. They are completemented by built-in timber furniture, floors, and steel window frames, all left in their natural appearance.
