Location Steep, fertile, south-facing slope. The growing number of houses and cottages in the area, which was almost untouched by construction half a century ago (fields, meadows, orchards). Quality of buildings is rapidly declining on the contrary to quantity.   Proposal House is placed in the upper part of the property, both floors are settled in order to fit well into the sloping terrain. Property offers possibility to enjoy wide open views of the Elbe valley and the plot is at the same time relatively easily accessible from the adjacent road. The builder of the original wooden cottage, whose ground plan footprint was absorbed by the new house, was apparently thinking in the same direction as we did. Brick base firmly settles the house into meander curves, wooden first floor rotating to the south is a tribute to the anonymous masters of typical Czech weekend cottages. We consider new house to be a free reinterpretation of the original cottage. Coat of the new house reflects the colors of the Bohemian Central Uplands in a summer haze.
