Weekend House in Bukovany

The house is conceptually divided into several layouts. The bedroom, bathroom and toilet occupy the brick part – originally a living area. The glazed living room stands on the site of the former goat sheds and is structurally a steel structure. The superstructure is made of wood and houses a sauna with a relaxation area. The house uses every bit of the steep plot. On the 230 m2 area, in addition to the house itself, there is a shed and above the roof terrace a swimming pool tucked into the slope with a panoramic view of the surroundings. The house has a traditional morphology but combines modern details with historical technologies. For example, the studio set a hand-hewn loft ceiling into a steel structure, which continues into frameless glazing. The interior plaster is coloured and polished without any additional surface treatment. They also applied a traditional Japanese folk technique of charred wood shou-sugi-ban. The mixture of the variety of details and the overall layout creates an architectural experience of the space and shows the possibility of implementing modern architecture in the historical context of the cellar lane.
