Stack in Slavonice, Czech Republic by e-MRAK – Martin Rajniš

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

Article source: e-MRAK – Martin Rajniš

The client purchased land in a protected nature reserve known as “Czech Canada”: wide meadows and rock outcroppings surrounded with pines. His wish was to build a stack here. What emerged is a house of nine modules of 3.60 m: the two modules at the edges are left open as terraces. The entire northern side is insulated and simultaneously forms, as in Japan, a long cabinet with sliding doors. The southern, eastern and western sides of the house are glazed from inside. The sliding dilation joint allows for fixed swinging frames with double glazing to be fitted even into the structure of the lumber stack, which can change its dimensions with damp or gradual drying of the wood. Experimentation with the hollow lumber stack here reached the level of a fully inhabitable house, where the tectonics of the hollow lumber stack simultaneously serve as a pleasant, firm external shading that prevents the emergence of a greenhouse effect inside.

Katka and Honza are cooking all the time. So they decided to burn their new house as well. But not from ground to top.Just only all around. Their boys are wondering around with hands full of coal looking forward for winter and making snowman. Hopefully there are some coal buttons left for snowman coat. Katka is harvesting carrots for his nose. Just tomcat with dog are sharing doghouse together. Spending long evenings trying to wake up memories for lovely and warmy flat in Prague.

Pisek city forest administration in Czech Republic by Huť architektury Martin Rajniš s.r.o.

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Article source: Huť architektury Martin Rajniš s.r.o.

The administration of the forest of the town of Pisek held a competition for a new operational building on a beautiful site at the edge of the forest; sloping to the south, it has a splendid view. Our foresters’ lodge is a box sliced in half by the hallway and its charm lies in the way that all of the outer layers of the building are wrapped around it: the linear winter gardens and the slanting shade-awnings. The interface between architecture and nature is a few steps wide, from an interior space surrounded by several layers you fi nd your way to the exterior. The structure also has several layers: the classic form of the box is supplemented with the wooden framing structure that supports the awnings. Down below, at the village, is an oasting-house (a building where ears of grain are left to dry to release the seeds) and we had the idea of making for this little house a kind of sister, a geometrically faithful copy in the form of a lumber stack, and that it could be the forest’s information centre.

JACER – training center in Ústí nad Labem-město, Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Originally a farmhouse, built in the second half of the nineteenth century in Předlice in the suburbs of Ústí nad Labem.

Under the communist regime it was occupied by agricultural cooperative which used the estate strictly pragmatically – only what was immediately needed was taken care of, the rest was neglected. Since the 90´s, the place was deserted and rapidly fell apart. Despite devastation of the area, there was still a strong sense of the original conception and smart design left.

Massive objects along the perimeter of the property define scale and space of the large yard area. Two of those – fifty meters long stables on the western edge of the property and sixty two meters long barn on the south – form basis of our proposal.

“We were inspired by, among other things, the Rubik’s Cube, the structure made of cubes in a cube where individual parts can change positions. Visitors to our pavilion represent the mobile component, i.e. imaginary particles which can use the structure as a landscape with a view.”

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: B² Architecture

This loft apartment located in a late 19th century house presents an interesting challenge: how to recover the graceful proportions of the living room while taking advantage of the possibilities offered by an earlier alteration which had inserted intermediate levels.

BRANCH OFFICE OF THE COMPANY M&V in Brno, Czech Republic by Rudolf Müller

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

Article source: Rudolf Müller

Converting the building of a former garage, body shop and paint shop into a branch office of a company selling hardware and metal machining toolware falls within the projects that you simply need if you still desire to make endless search for the relationship between architecture and its surroundings, to historical and future development, and to detail. Or, the desire to search and to deliver as well, to put it more precisely. The aim is not to be bound by previously taken decisions, on the contrary, following critical discussions with experts, to select the seemingly best solution and to feel the client’s support. Subsequently, the whole process results in the absence of extremes, i.e. unilateral and pointless architectural exhibition and a unified and universal solution with stubborn efforts to reduce the budget at any cost.

SINGLE FAMILY HOUSE Habrovice in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Agricultural village spread around a municipal road. Original strong and confident establishment as well as neighboring generous farm houses are gone. Nearby natural swimming pool (widely used not long time ago) has been devastated (also due to lack of interest of local authorities). That is an unsettling image of the contemporary outside. Uncertainty, treading water… Now what?
