Jestico + Whiles has completed a luxury private villa in the heart of a village close to Prague in the Czech Republic. A sophisticated five-bedroom family home that marries a contemporary aesthetic with the best in environmental design, the property also includes cutting-edge intelligent home technologies. Fully integrated into the surrounding landscape, Jestico + Whiles’ design fuses the home’s minimalist spaces with physical connections to the landscaped gardens. The villa features a transparent south- facing façade that allows natural light to flood throughout the entire living space without any danger of overheating or glare in summer thanks to balcony overhangs and a cantilevered roof. A large skylight on the upper level is designed to break up the façade on the second floor and highlight the division of spaces into master wing and children’s wing. The skylight also brings light deep into the ground floor and is framed by a picturesque pocket garden visible from the master bedroom. The north façade is defined by a mosaic of windows, each one offering a framed and unique view of the garden.
