Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Article source: Qarta Architektura

The Origami project is situated in a peaceful residential district in Prague 6 and it consists of 7 houses. The concept is beyond the common idea of individual housing. Formally it’s been defined as a block of flats but the design is closer to the individual residential housing.

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.

Article source: Jiří Vokřál & Hana Horáková

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.

The Fence house in Semtín, Czech Republic by Mjolk architects

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

Article source: Mjolk architects

There is a yellow cloud covering Semtín(a factory producing Semtex explosives) again. It stings a little on the nose, but it’s not worse than chopping fresh onions. I drive home every weekend. My parents are great. My dad makes the best breakfast in the world and the mom is the best unrivaled stew cook. We have a small but proud house behind a wooden fence. Instead of a garage we have a container where we store all life junk. Our garden is slowly growing up and it alredy cut us off from the last prying neighbors. The house is a place just right for our for me, my sister and our parents. Me and my sister have our bedrooms on the ground floor. They are more cells than rooms, but they have some huge windows and offer us close distance to the garden. The parents bedroom is upstairs. They have a calm and lovely views. Visits are quite common in our house. I love the feeling when we’re all together. Sweet smell of dad´s plum destillate permeates the house and onion goulash hisses on the stove again. This is how we live here.

Modular Cafeteria in Vizovice, Czech Republic by Chybik+Kristof Associated Architects

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Article source: Chybik+Kristof Associated Architects

Few young architects under the age of 30 can boast of two completed commissions in their portfolios like Ondrej Chybik and Michal Kristof, the founders of Chybik+Kristof Associated Architects. Their first commission – a modular cafeteria for KOMA MODULAR in Vizovice – was completed in May 2014; the second­­ – the Czech pavilion at EXPO 2015 in Milan – was inaugurated exactly a year later. Both designs draw on the simplicity of modernist architecture, creating dynamic spaces of high aesthetic value. Their buildings are innovative in terms of the introduction of new materials and their combinations into modular construction. While the Czech EXPO pavilion expectedly attracts media attention, it is rarely mentioned that it could never have been so successfully achieved without Chybik+Kristof AA’s previous experience with modular systems at Vizovice.
