Bára I and Bára II in Czech Republic by Martin Rajniš

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš

The history of the tower Bára has got all atributes of a dramatic story. Town council of Chrudim decided to build an out-look tower in the forest boundary, where the landscape provides beautiful panoramic view of the surroundings. An architectonic contest was made and as the winning project was marked the one by Martin Martin Rajniš from e-Mrak team. An out-look tower in the shape of truncated triangular pyramid, made out of larch planks with minimum number of fixed joints, secured by metal tow bars. Acces to the view platform is provided by circular oak stair, which is fixed on the convulated steel pole rod in the middle of the tower. Upon the view platform is placed a mast made of steel tubes with flashlight on the top. Out-look Bára was festively opened for public on the 21st of June 2008. Unfortunately, a massive storms, with a power of tornado in some locations, swept across the Czech republic just four days later. One of them appeared at the region of Chrudim and caused irrecoverable damage to the new-built out-look. Whirlwind left nothing but a mass of wreckage a few meters from the place were original out-look bas placed. However, citizens of Chrudim did not give up and the decision to build a new one was made almost immediately. On the 3rd of September 2009 was the new tower – Bára II opened. This new out-look is pretty much the same as the previous one was. It is just slightly lower and built in a way to resist the wind with power of a cyclone (approximately 200 kms per hour, in contrast to the previous one, which was able to resist only 130 kms per hour). Bára II has also got more security components, including steel cables with tension varying each thirty minutes according to air moisture. View from the platform is usualy the most interesting feature of the out-look, but Bara II has much more to offer. For visitors with interest in technics has to be pleasure to see the unique construction with number of simple, but clever details. Those, who are more into philosophy could use the wall of the tower as a source of meditation. Variation of horizontal wooden lines and gaps between them makes really delightful view. The structure reminds of water clarification and makes interferential optical effect, which is well known for its sedative action.

Another interesting feature was the positioning of a high- capacity fish tank into the living room.The main characteristic of the former flat plan was an over-sized double entrance space which occupied an excessive amount of space.

Attic apartment in Prague, Czech republic by Mooza architecture

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Article source: Mooza architecture

„Small, but flexible“ – Two keywords, which are the best description of this interior design. The space itself is indeed generous in its height, but it is really limited in its ground surface. The challenge was to find here a place for dining, cooking, meeting friends or watching a movie, working and of course – sleeping. Last but not least to create a sufficient amount of storage spaces which are needed for an active life.

Maisonette flat in Brno, Czech Republic by Mooza architecture

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Article source: Mooza architecture

The initial state of the flat was made up of two dwelling units forming a maisonette where the orientation of the connecting staircase did not allow a full use of the upper storey. It included two rooms, one of them being a walk-through room and a little bathroom in bad need of renovation.

The drive behind this commission was a lady investor who sought Martin Martin Rajniš with the request to try and design a studio to fit among some stone houses. There was already an old stone wall on the site, defining a small area below the street level and overlooking a river valley.

Apré Ski in Príchovice, Czech Republic by e-MRAK – Martin Rajniš

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Article source: e-MRAK – Martin Rajniš

A Rajmach dome. “Après ski” is where skiers go for a drink after a day on the slopes and relax with their friends. Aleš Voverka, a friend of mine, is building a small skiing area in Příchovice and was very enthusiastic at the prospect that this experimental construction would serve as the fi rst après ski. We hope that sometime around the middle of 2008 the fi rst dome will be transported by helicopter to the site. It is a pioneering step in the fi eld of wooden construction, which was created by Honza Mach for his thesis project. He built it himself, only with the help of several fellow students. And with only eight kilograms of wood per square meter of structure with a span of 9–12 m! That’s what I call success.

Guild House Slavonice in Czech Republic by ov architekti s.r.o.

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: ov architekti s.r.o.

The Community House in Slavonice was built by German citizens of the town before the Second world war. It was the meeting place for their clubs and societies. After the Second world war Germans were expelled. From the 1980´s the house had been extended without any concept several times, conversion into cinema was never finished. In 1989 the totalitarian regime ended. Later the house was bought by local NGO (Slavonická renesanční), which organizes public cultural and educational activities, and it was decided to renovate it.

Post Office Sněžka in Czech Republic by Martin Rajniš

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš

It’s hard to find a more difficult place for building a house than the peak of Mt. Sněžka. Wind speeds reach up to 250 km/h, winter temperatures hit record freezes, it is the most strictly protected zone of a national park. How to build in such a locality without spending excess money, and create a house that would remain in the minds of the people who visit? This building is a cousin of the storage depots of Amundsen’s or Scott’s polar expeditions, or the houses that you see in Greenland or the Spitzberg Islands. It enters on tiptoes into the national park: it is of wood and glass, standing on delicate metal supports. In the harshest winters it is completely closed off behind interior insulation slabs – shadowboxes – and exterior blinds, which protect it from flying bits of rock and ice. Its outdoor staircase reminds you that you are climbing to the highest point of the Czech lands. An environmentally friendly wooden building, respecting nature, humanity, and the majesty of the mountains.

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.
