Text description provided by the architects. Labor 13 was asked to design two low budget family houses on same building site. Clients are two friends with their families. They had same program and also we decided to use same style of construction and materials to make the building more efficient.

The situation of house (slope, orientation to sun, position of entrance) and taste of client was  cause of two houses with diferent inside organisation and look.

House R is situated on sloping part of site. In the order to create three autonomous flat plane (parking place, terace from living space and flat space in lower garden) we design masive concrete wall which organise the garden and hold the house. This horizontal wall in the contrast with narrow, tall wood building create nice dynamic composition. Wood facade is from larch without any surface treatment.
