Situated in a residential area of villas on the northern bank of Revnice above the Berounka valley in the Czech Republic, House Revnice is a modern family retreat offering a healthy lifestyle. The residence- envisioned by Jarousek.Rochová.Architekti– is composed of a lower level embedded into a green garden and an upper volume which seems independent from certain viewing point. For privacy reasons, the street facade is relatively closed, while the southern part the house opens into the greenery of the garden and makes use of an intimate terrace.
According to the architects, the residence is structured as follows: “The living section consists of the main living space, dining room and a kitchen with exits to the terrace. This living area utilizes along its’ whole length the transparent curvature of the southern facade, with continuous contact with the garden and the house itself. The northeast of the building comes with a beautiful view and a section with a continuing curvature oriented to the patio. It is here that the bedrooms and a hallway with a dressing room are situated”. Enjoy the virtual tour! [Photography: Filip Slapal]
The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
