location: Horni Jiretin
status: Built project
We have designed this house for a young family on a rather exceptional site where the North tip of the City of Horni Jiretin blends with the foothills of extraordinary mountain ridge that creates a natural barrier between two countries – Czech and German. Dense forests frame the site from three sides and only the South edge opens towards the Bohemian plateau.
It offers stunning views of the Czech Highlands with its distinguished volcanic peaks and recently renovated landscape that reminds one of the brown coalfields still rich and active in the adjacent locations. In these unusual circumstances we are creating a solid form independent and sovereign of its surroundings.
