The land plot with new building of the family house is located on the southern sid of the Ještěd Ridge with a beautiful view of the landscape. The  form corresponds with terrain relief and the land orientation towards cardinal points. The grand plan of the wide open V form splits the house into two masses. The social part of the house is situated in the western wing witha saddle roof – the timber building. The rest of the building is made of concrete blocks and has a green roof linked to the terrain. There, the bedrooms are located; the garage with the utility room is on the northern side. The wooden part is covered with timber coating; the roof has –slate-grey plates; and the concrete block part is realized as gauged brickwork, uncoated.

    best house i’ve seen in a while…lucky it’s just groundfloor, then it all ends up on making a nice picture – materials, typologies…love it!

    No interior pictures?
    Some missunderstandings in the plan. Such as no inside door to garrage.

      Does there need to be a door? garage, open garage door, take car, close garage door.. Interiors would be brilliant.. nice little project! very nice!
