Block-type private house for 1-2 children family
The great author Faust in admiration called Bohemia “the Rome of the North”, “the heart of Europe” and “the most precious stone” of the world’s stone crown. We believe that it will be interesting for our visitors to get acquainted with block-type private house residential architecture in detail. It is interesting that here people themselves do not accept foreign names for dwellings, calling them in their own way rodinných domů.
The owner of a newly built family mansion has commissioned his project from the 3 + 1 architekti design studio. The question of choosing a construction site for the owner had long been decided – it was deeply familiar to him, because his grandfather lived here, on the outskirts of the compact town of Vaňov. Isn’t it sentimental and touching? It should be admitted that the grandfather was right about the location.
The new building with its concrete foundations is cut into a rocky basalt slope with many picturesquely scattered natural pillar-like minerals. The mansion is turned with its façade to the north, from where a picturesque landscape of a calm navigable river opens up, of lower, almost utopian, rural houses under textured tiled roofs.
The territory around the dwelling is landscaped: the well-groomed English lawn, covering the walls of the block-type private house with a carpet, pleases with fresh greenery; without blocking the view of the river, the fruit trees of a private garden are approaching.
Block-type private House designed to accomodate 1-2 children family
Speaking about the architecture of a family dwelling in general, we note that by its structure it is laconic and designed to accommodate an average Czech family with 1 – 2 children.
Analyzing the architecture of a dwelling, you involuntarily correlate the rectangular shapes of the building with the architectural style of constructivism. However, we have to admit that this largely folklore design is quite interesting.
The designers took advantage of the difficult terrain to add variety to the project – the back of the basement level is completely closed, and from the side of the facade it is raised and decorated with a basalt installation.
The first floor has continuous glazing over the entire area of the facade and contains a hall, living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. The second level of the family house is incomplete, it is designed as an attic and consists of a master bedroom, Mastersuite and a nursery. Both rooms look like separate attics and are equipped with separate internal staircases to the first floor. They bring originality to the exterior of the entire home with their striking siding.
The Mastersuite block has a bright red exterior finish, while the nursery has a yellow finish. The siding of the first floor, on which these attics are installed, is intense black. The foundation of the building, raised from the side of the facade, is decorated by the designers with a kind of installation made of crushed basalt taken during construction right here, from a cut hill.
The foundation has a larger area than the first floor. Thanks to this, a covered terrace lined with teak is equipped above it – a favorite family place for relaxation and contemplation of nature and its phenomena.
The interior of the house is light, minimalistic. White walls, ceilings, and solid glazing are characteristic of the spacious modern open-architecture room, with zoning into the kitchen, dining room and living room. Glass sliding doors separate it from the terrace.
The floors are lined with a walnut-like laminate in dark and reddish shades.
The furniture of this family house is diverse, contrasting: if it is white for the kitchen with the dining room, then the ergonomic leather furniture-transformer of the living room is black, decorated with nickel-plated fragments.
Concluding the journey to the Czech penates, we will conclude that the Slavic brothers really know how to build in their own way, in an interesting and original way.
