From the architect. New family houses for different private clients are situated in a small village close to Prague. This location is very popular with young families with children. The parents work in Prague, but live in the country in a family house with a garden. This strong trend in the Czech Republic represents mainly standardized houses from catalogues.

Those two presented houses – designed as an archetypal form of a house in central Europe – stand out of this mass production. The reasonably used layouts are comfortable. The main living room is joined with the kitchen and the dining room. This gives an impression of a generous space.

The first house is made of concrete blocks with insulation and wooden cladding. The cable roof is covered with concrete black tiles. The house is opened to the southern garden. The garden was precisely designed and it is an inseparable part of the house. The owners started to be worried about their view because the neighbouring site was not built-up yet. They decided to recommend the architect and the site to their friends.

The second house is made of ceramic blocks with insulation and an added brick wall. The gable slate roof corresponds to the first house by the shape and colour. The focus of the design is a vista in the direction of the cross axis. This principle is inspired by passable barns. There are situated two tables in this axis. The first – internal one is placed in double story open space. The second table consists on the external embedded terrace. The living room is next to these spaces in an intimate part of the house.

The clients finally joined their gardens together. The houses appeal as a composition of two simple houses in a common large garden.
