Passive House in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic by Echorost architekti

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Article source: Echorost architekti

The house was designed for the old couple, whose main demands were low maintenance/operation costs and distribution of main rooms to the ground floor.
It was the specific shape of the plot which set a boundary of the house and together with structural constraints also defined a resulting geometry of the house. The geometry was based on a consistent extrusion of the house boundary. The proposal took into account also an option that clients could buy up the neighbouring plots. This came true during the construction of the house. The design of the house was optimized for the lowest energy demand while keeping other design demands (e.g. possibility to use the first floor as a second flat). Therefore the house met the passive house criteria and among else qualified for the appropriate government subsidy.

family house in Mikulovice, Czech Republic by ZETTE atelier s.r.o.

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

Article source: ZETTE atelier s.r.o.

The house is located in Mikulovice, a quiet village near Pardubice, in a flat region surrounding the river of Elbe. Despite having only 1000 inhabitants, this village is currently going through a housing boom. The house site is situated between a baroque church and a forest. Just like the neighbouring ones, this housing lot was also made by restoring a former waste disposal site.

Prague National Gallery Entrance Hall in Hradcanske Square, Prague, Czech Republic by Mateo Arquitectura

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: Mateo Arquitectura

In the grounds of Prague Castle, among various palaces currently reused to house the National Gallery, the brief was to design a small building that provides an entrance to the museum complex. Two parallel surfaces organize what used to be an empty space without weighing it down: one forms the floor, the other the roof.

Family House Vaňov in Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Saturday, May 25th, 2013

Article source: 3+1 architekti

House is difficult to access, located on a steep basalt slope above the village. Garden is facing northeast. On the other hand there is a positive side to it –  an exceptionally beautiful view on the river. Builder feels a very strong connection to this place, as there used to be a small weekend cottage built by his grandparents.

Family House Libochovany – extension in Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: 3+1 architekti

We are asking how to adapt a hundred years old  and only little maintained house to everyday needs of a modern family (small floor space, technology and materials not functional anymore, lacking sanitary facilities …). At the same time we do not want to break or violate soft, sensitive links and layerings created here over the time, as these generate a strong character of this place – magical (and familiar) atmosphere.

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

Article source: Basarch

Existing green mound, protecting the open fields of the game preserve from the bustle of the road became a refuge for hunting lodge – a lookout, which replaced original technically unsuitable structure. Above all, the lodge provides necessary facilities for the game preserve, as well as becomes a place of encounters, whether with friends or of romantic views of the surrounding countryside.

City Green Court in Prague, Czech Republic by Richard Meier & Partners

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Article source: Richard Meier & Partners

City Green Court is the third of a cluster of buildings designed by Richard Meier & Partners and it completes the corner of the Radio Plaza superblock located in the Pankrac area of Prague. The building is conceived of as a geometric volume in dialogue with the near context while offering respected contrast to the surrounding buildings. Smaller in scale than its predecessor and sibling, City Tower, it is equally inspired by the language of Czech Cubism, with a façade that while addressing issues of conservation and sustainability incorporates forms reminiscent of this avant-garde movement. The quote below, in essence, sums up the philosophy and concepts behind City Green Court.

Family House in Černošice, Czech Republic by Studio pha

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Article source: Studio pha

The house is divided into two masses. Mass of single-floor (Ground floor) is a “plate” free umbrella residential space that is open to surroundings. This living area has a strong “Back” hosted service block together with a garage. Mass of two floors with a distinctive roof rack is contrary to the self-contained house (wood house) with bedrooms, bathrooms and relevant rooms, connected to the living area by short corridor. Modification of the land among them creates smooth connection between the interior and exterior.

Villa Řitka in Czech Republic by Studio pha

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Article source: Studio pha

The basic idea is a kind of enclosure of the building in and on itself, and the use of the sloping ground to divide the building into a two-storey main residential part on the upper part of the land and a lower building containing the garages and entrance hall further down the slope. The result is essentially a two-storey house with a flat roof, positioned atop the concrete “retaining wall” of the lower structure. The house’s plan is of “U”-shape, or equally it could be described as a rectangle with an interior atrium open on one side to the surrounding landscape. Inside the atrium is a small pool, which ensures for this space pleasant cooling, reinforced by the system of louvered blinds against the sun.
