Mobius Architects as Architects

The house on a flat, square lot surrounded by typical houses. The plan allowed to cover the house with a flat roof and we made use of this aspect by creating a simple, intimate solid with crude expression which would be not accessible from the street. We achieved this effect with semi-closed interiors. Functional layout of the house is based on a wide, partially two-storey communication line which is successively combined with house functions, thus creating a very rational spatial arrangement. Second storey acts as a night area which is also connected by a long communication path in form of a platform overhanging ground floor corridor. The building block consists of cuboids arranged according to the concept of the functions which are inscribed into a circle formed by a garden composed of different types of grasses, bushes and trees. Beside the circle in the garden project plan there are also smaller circles which will be planted with high trees. Building projection was created in a way to save three high old trees planted in the middle of the lot and to integrate them into the designed building. The building is minimalistic, simply expressed, with an invisible detail. The assumption was to achieve a strong contrast to the surrounding typical land development.
