White Apartment in Uherske Hradiste, Czech Republic by Next Level Studio

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Article source: Next Level Studio

Over three years lasting reconstruction of the 3+1 apartment in Uherske Hradiste, Czech Republic appealed an endless process of thoughts and construction operations, which finally filled the visions. Every line on a sketch, every statement in a computer programme, as well as every single building block, was considered as crucial everything influencing steps. The most difficult task for an architect – is designing for himself. How to recognize reserves in the design, how to set the limits behind which he doesn’t need to go though the possibilities are finally almost limitless? The design was treated as the opportunity to try out certain procedures, materials and technologies. I am interested in monochrome space, where light can be experimented. White itself has many shades, tones, and valeurs. During the day, the Sun warms the interior with light of 2000 – 3500K. While the artificial evening light set on 4200K, cools the space. Artificial light casts varied shadows, highlights different elements and the interior transmutes. Colour RGB LED strips; hidden in the niches of the furniture, enable dynamic coloration of the space. They can “paint” the space in accordance with the current wishes.

Franz Kafka Society Center in Prague, Czech Republic by STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Article source: STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS

The basement of the small one-story building, formerly used for laundry and storage, now houses a space for exhibitions, lectures, and concerts, as well as it accommodates Franz Kafka’s private library. On the first level of the building the Franz Kafka Society has located its offices. The previously dark and dismal spaces of the building are now washed in daylight coming through newly inserted windows and skylights that provide unexpected views to the towers of the Maisel Synagogue. Marcela Steinbachová (Skupina) and Steven Holl Architects have deliberately situated these windows off axis to the interiors. Inside the building new visual connections through openings and inspection holes give its small spaces depth and create visual connections.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE in Pernink, Czech Republic by FAM Architekti (Feilden+Mawson Prague)

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Article source: FAM Architekti (Feilden+Mawson Prague)

The house is located 820 metres above sea level in the village of Pernink in a valley which is defined by a wild water stream. The prevailing western winds are tackled with a narrow gable end of the building. The house represents a hybrid typology of a small residential retreat and a guest house with facilities for skiing and nature hiking. The form of the house is largely defined by topography and the orientation towards views of surrounding woodland landscape. The external walls are made of 490 mm thick superinsulated rendered clay blocks which are also used for the main loadbearing wall. A sense of cave like protection against climate is supported by the journey from the entrance lobby to the upper floor living space which winds itself twice through this thick internal wall. The hierarchy of various internal ceiling heights is reflected through the exterior building form.

The family villa in Prague, Czech Republic by Ing. arch. Jan Lapcik (FUSIONarchitects) and Ing. arch. Jarmila Kopecna

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

Article source: Ing. arch. Jan Lapcik (FUSIONarchitects) and Ing. arch. Jarmila Kopecna

The original family villa is a work by architect Prager from the 1970s. It was not only a unique building, but also one at a unique place that thanks to its orientation offered an exclusive view to Prague and provided necessary privacy at the same time. A strict and exact cube with its austere elegance looked inconspicuous from the street. The villa was originally designed for the architect’s family. Yet the villa kept changing together with the family. The originally open ground floor was encased in masonry walls. Steel columns supporting the single-storied mass of the flat were included in the bricked outer walls. This is how the two-storied block was built accommodating two separate flats – one on each floor. The garden was the outer connecting living space for the life of two generations.

Lahofer Winery in Dobsice, Czech Republic by Chybik + Kristof Architects & Urban Designers

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

Article source: Chybik + Kristof Architects & Urban Designers

The winery is composed into the scenic South Moravian countryside scattered with vineyards. The structural scheme is based on the width of the row of grapevines and runs through the whole house. In the representative wine tasting room, the vineyard and an archetypal arched room, referring to the wine cellars in that region, intersect orthogonally. Wine making is concentrated in two horizontal buildings, the winery thus gives the impression of being lightweight in relation to the countryside.

Flat land to build a house is located in Olomouc-Slavonín. Access to the site is from the east side, where it is also connected by new driveway. The surrounding lands were until recently used as private gardens. Due to construction of a new access road (including utilities) in place of the existing dirt road, housing development in the area started.
