The Czech architects, from , finished their wooden house project in Central Bohemia at a former arboretum, last year. It’s a three floors economical and spacious weekend house, surrounded by nature, that has an open residential ground floor, an enclosed bedroom floor, and a rooftop terrace.
The ground floor (the living are) is a great concept that was built as a central core, forming a single space that looks into the forest through large expanses of glass. The structure comes with movable walls which allows to separate the living area and the kitchen if you like, or turn the southern corridor section as a winter garden. The upper floor is the quiet part of the house, with the bedrooms and a large bath, plus a “secret” staircase that leads along the facade to the rooftop terrace, for a pleasant and relaxing time under the open sky.
Because it’s built on a wooden frame with thinner outside walls (reinforced OSB slabs), the construction time was shorter than usual. What I would like to know is how much the owners had to pay for that house, because it sure is a great escape from the busy towns we probably work in.
