the house in neveklov, czech republic, by ateliér kunc works with the basic, archetypal form of a family house with a saddle roof. from the perspective of the composition, there are two buildings with the same roof pitch and different heights, slightly jutting out and connected by a glass neck. the main motive of the studio’s concept was to link the interior with the exterior through large windows and terraces.

ateliér kunc’s house is very airy, it offers a number of look-outs into the large garden. the colors are very minimalistic – the house is black form the outside and the interior is predominantly white – based on the long-standing inspiration by scandinavia. the details and the furniture bring color accents to the interior, the atmosphere is created by a fireplace and a number of accessories.

the house is standing in a formal orchard, and the building is thus designed to integrate into the garden throughout the time. ‘when designing, we deliberately incorporated the beauty of imperfection,’ explains the team. ‘we expect the façade to get patina, the color to go grey, the wooden terraces to go silver, the grass and the meadow flowers to grow a little wild and all that will blend into an organic whole.’

construction-wise, the house is a wooden, skeletal system. the façades, including the sloping roof are made by the japanese technique, they were covered by hand charred larch planks. in order to highlight the minimalist look of the house, kunc designed a concealed gutter. there are white planks used in the interior peripheral construction, the internal partitions are plasterboard, the floor is cast cementitious screed.

  • ‘Flame cooked’ siding… might not be a bad idea, but I wonder what insurance companies would think. It looks a bit like a train station, (lay the driveway along the backside) but very livable and practical.
