The family house was built in 1930's for the purposes of permanent residence.
It was designed by the later renowned architect Vladimír Karfík.
The house is located on an almost secluded spot above the Hradec u Stříbrné Skalice village. The large plot of land has got an adjacent forest.
The forest and the plot are separated by a reinforced driveway.
The house is situated in the upper part of the plot.
The plot is slightly sloping, has an excellent southward orientation and great views of the Jevanský brook valley.
The family house reconstruction was designed with a great respect to the original architectural design which is excellent and, despite its age (approximately 80 years) still up-to date.
We fully respected the house's original volume, nothing was added, nothing was demolished. Nonetheless, there were some changes to the original design: bigger glass surfaces, more openness of the house towards the garden. Most of the windows are French windows or windows with only a small sill.
In order to get more space, the original disposition of the house is loosened by demolishing some partition walls which used to divide the house into smaller rooms.
The house is designed using the following colour palette: a white cube with a veranda and a roof-top terrace, put on a stone sockle.
The windows and doors are wooden and anthracite black.
From the -0,300 level, the perimeter walls are insulated by EPS Baumit Open Reflect, in order to maintain the diffusion-open composition of walls.
The surface finish is a plaster with 2mm grain size.
