It’s always a great challenge for an architect to create a house. It’s a showcase which is always visible to its inhabitants and their visitors, as well as to passers-by. The authors and future users had chosen timelessness, functionality and constructional simplicity as the main criteria for creating the concept of the house.
A significant defining aspect was the relatively small property (470 m2). One terrace is situated to the south west towards the garden and the second terrace to the north and it is made of a semi-covered patio, which offers a pleasant cover from the sun in the summer. Cleverly assembled window openings sophisticatedly illuminate the interior and allow views of the exterior. Interesting features of the house are graphics from the artist Peter Bařinka, which soften the walls made of visual concrete.
