Cube in a cube

boq architekti as Architects

Exceptional residential houses near the capital city.
.
A simple cube with hanging wooden construction. Closed-up, practical layout utilizing views of the landscape. This is the development project called "Za Vetrnikem Dobris".


Three semi-detached houses which were created as the first stage of the whole locality. Six units that form the basis of the developing part of Dobris city.


The entrance area is followed by a cloakroom, toilet and guest room/study, which leads to the living area with kitchen and dining room. On the upper floor, there are two rooms with a bathroom and separate parent wing with bedroom, dressing room and bathroom.


We worked with overhead lighting, which illuminates the hallway on the ground floor. We worked with an interior / exterior relationship, almost every room in the house has an exit to the terrace or balcony.


A significant element of the whole project is a steel frame with a wooden filling that fulfills several functions. It creates hidden nooks for storing garden tools, contributes to the shading of interior spaces and mainly creates a secondary cloak, a barrier that ensures the owners much more privacy.


Materials Used:
1. Brick building
2. White plaster
3. Hanging steel construction
4. Wooden vertical elements
5. Aluminum windows
