The summer house has been designed as simple box-shaped volume with a single-pitch roof. The special appeal of the house lies in the interior facing the outside. Overlooking the south, the volume has a large loggia adjacent to the kitchen and the living room. The loggia has functions similar to those of the house itself as it has a fireplace with a couch, a summer kitchen, and a large dining table with built-in places for seating. Thus, the house provides everything which is necessary for a summer vacation in the countryside. The cozy and warm interior adds a lot to the relaxed atmosphere of a holiday.
ZA architects made preliminary design of the house with the use of 3D visualization.
