Krumlov Backyard

The new-build family residence has been constructed on a sloping, ten-hectare plot of land in what was an overgrown orchard on the outskirts of a little hamlet in the South of Czech Republic near Český Krumlov. The building has an intimate, half-closed courtyard in an open landscape, and from its terrace church spires can be seen in the distance over the Vltava valley. Thanks to the ferroconcrete frame in part of the house, allowing the removal of some walls, the spires can also be seen from the inside. Water elements are naturally influenced by the vitality of the nearby stream. The design is inspired by the countryside, full of life, including the durable reed thatched roof that tops the building.
