Janosik Design Window Showroom in Prague, Czech Republic by Mjölk architects

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Article source: Mjölk architects

The way the Janošík Company promote themselves, be it their visual identity or advertising new products, made such an impression on us that we immediately accepted the offer to remodel their showroom in Prague. It is located on the ground floor of a block of flats from the period of the First Republic (1918–1939); The rooms had undergone a number of renovations and had changed tenants many times. And it REALLY showed. Lots of plasterboard, a grid ceiling from the 1990s and floor tiles of all shapes and colours. At the beginning we met with Jakub Janošík, who was in charge of the renovation, and we laid out the main objectives: to get to the original structure of the house by removing all the extra layers and to limit the number of samples on display. We did not want it to be just a room full of windows – we wanted to change it into something more homely. And it turned out pretty well. We uncovered the original concrete slabs supporting the ceiling and, hiding under the floor tiles, we found the original terazzo. Parts of the original parquetry were beyond repair and had to be replaced with new floor boards. Now, the entire showroom looks much cleaner and better-arranged. The light shades of the interior help the windows on display to stand out. Jakub’s wish was to stick to Czech design with the furnishing as well. The chairs are genuine TON, the lights are Bomma or Lasvit, the flowers from the Plevel flower shop sit in vases from the Dechem Design Studio. We are happy to say there is a lot to choose from! We are even happier there are Czech companies that care about the places they invite their customers to.

ENGEL House in Andělská Hora, Czech Republic by Vit Maslo and David Richard Chisholm

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Article source: Vit Maslo and David Richard Chisholm 

In a small community in the Western region of the Czech Republic, not far from the spa town of Karlovy Vary, this villa was designed as a recreational house for an accomplished man, his family and friends.  The architect’s intention was essentially to assimilate the romantic context of this small village, posited just under the massive cliffs and ruins of a Gothic castle, where the town originated. Andelska Hora (originally in German Engelsburg), belongs to a protected area of the country, and sits above 600 meters in altitude.  The local climate, as one could expect, has dramatic extremes.

JETLAG tea & wine bar in Prague, Czech Republic by Mimosa architekti

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Article source: Mimosa architekti 

This small bar in the centre of Prague offers especially tea and wine but also delicious coffee. Separately or in various even astonishing combinations. The space concept of travelling through time zones has been derived from its name „Jetlag“. Within this meaning one can “fly through” the entire world only along the whole length of the bar (15 metres).

Church of St. Wenceslas in Sazovice, Czech Republic by Atelier Štěpán

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Article source: Atelier Štěpán 

Church of St. Wenceslas in Sazovice is a modern rotunda and contemporary architecture built on conservative principles from Moravian architectural office Atelier Štěpán. The idea of building a church in Sazovice dates from the interwar period. In 2011 the people of Sazovice brought the idea again and founded the association of church building. The first important task was to find a particular location, which would help to amplify the spiritual sense of church. According to the masterplan, we discovered 4 possible sites for the building. Only one of them was in the heart of Sazovice perfectly linked with the surrounding building structure and its social connections.

Circumstances

The task was to design an overall reconstruction of the suburban house in a retro style in Lány for weekend living.

The house is located at the outskirts of the village. The street consists of a row of family houses and the edge of the forest. The surrounding development is characterized by layering of various annexes and extensions to original houses. The designed house was preserved in almost original form and from this point of view it was exceptional.

Stajnhaus in Mikulov, Czech Republic by ORA

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Article source: ORA

The ŠTAJNHAUS has not been a project, the ŠTAJNHAUS has been a process. This house with a Renaissance core stands right at the foot of the chateau hill, in the former Jewish quarter of Mikulov (a. k. a. Nikolsburg). Throughout its existence it has suffered a great many scars, it has gone through tens of reconstructions and operations. All of these have altered the house beyond recognition. Yet it has maintained its almost medieval picturesqueness.

Brick House in Brick Garden in PRUŠÁNKY, CZECH REPUBLIC by Jan Proksa

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

Article source: Jan Proksa

Traditional villages in the Southern Moravia region of the Czech Republic are characterized by their distinctive urban planning. The streets are lined with L-shaped row houses neighbouring each other on narrow rectangular plots, each with its own long and narrow backyard. A single multi-generational family home typically consists of three parts: the street-facing house inhabited by parents with their children, a home for the grandparents bordering on a courtyard, and the remaining lot to the rear of the property which was traditionally used for small-scale farming. In general, the front-facing houses are more spacious and feature more elaborate construction techniques. The façade, for example, the house’s public presentation to the neighbourhood, is plastered and coloured in light natural tones. The rear buildings, however, typically remain unplastered, as such a solution was an unnecessary expense. The use of exposed brick architecture for the rear buildings was a simple, durable, and cost-effective solution which nonetheless radiated familiarity and warmth.
