Martin Neruda architektura saves burned family house in czechia

 

Martin Neruda Architektura revives an old village house standing in decay on a corner plot in the settlement of Baně, southeast of Zbraslav, Czech Republic. The single-family residence consisting of an attic and a small cellar was irreparably damaged after a fire dismantled the ceilings and roof structure. Respecting the original volume and footprint on the site, the reconstructing alterations added a larger garage, hidden under the ground, forming a green slope in the existing garden. The surrounding landscape was redesigned to its whole setting up a glazed vestibule and terrace. The project’s main restorative gestures were applied to the covering framework.

open house plan accommodates various functions ON two levels

 

The transformed garden can be viewed through new openings and passages of the house. At the house’s central zone, a generous living space, open to the roof, is interconnected to the dining room and kitchen overlooking the willow trees and the rooftops of the surrounding houses. The interior benefits from open space and easy circulation. The more private part of the house forms behind the staircase, fitting the bedroom and bathroom. Concerning the upper floor, the attic shapes a gallery serving as a library with a study area, a playroom, or a place to practice yoga. Also, the reconstructive plan by Martin Neruda Architektura accommodated two bedrooms and a small bathroom. Illuminated by a strip skylight, the master bedroom gives into day and night skyscapes.

concrete ceilings and roof beams shape in triangular formation

 

The most impressive feature is the new construction of the ceilings and roof trusses. The rooms on the ground floor are dominated by reinforced concrete ceilings, whose individual ribs are triangular in cross-section. Thin steel collar beams are the structural component of the recycled roof truss, shaping the loft space and also acting as shades. The materials of the interior alternate between rough and rustic finishes, and gentle and elaborate details. Delicate draperies and colorful everyday objects complement the minimal character of the house.
