The replacement of an old cabin on a lake shore in Norther Bohemia respects the unique natural character of the site and follows the cabin’s original outline. The brief of the project was to provide an all year round retreat for the clients’ yachting passion, with minimum typology and maximum visual connections to the lake and the surrounding pine forest. The single pitch is a result of internal spatial planning as well as the relationship to the lake – shore axis represented by the mooring pier as a principle access point. The interior of the cabin is accessible through the large window opening and is designed as a continuous space open to the roof. The tall end includes a sleeping gallery with a compact black box underneath containing minimal kitchen, toilet and shower facilities. The principle wall of the interior forms a deep full length cupboard for storage with a built in fire place.
