A house by the street to Kunětická hora, in the centre of the municipality of Ráby. A ramshackle rural house with small farmyard originally stood on the site. With the orientation of its gable wall, it matched the rhythm of the neighbouring houses on the street. This was also respected by our main motif for the new house.
The semi-detached family house is designed to blend into its surroundings, and since the investor wanted a single-floor house, it was also necessary to use the space in the attic beneath the gabled roof.
There are two units in the house. The first one, closer to the street, is designed with the main living space on the ground floor; the bedrooms and bathrooms are situated in the attic. The other unit is separated by a large garage accessible from both sides. The unit is situated mostly on the ground floor, and the attic is designed as a relaxation zone with a study on the gallery. The entire house faces the garden with the swimming pool.

The structure of the house is conventional and is made of ceramic blocks with reinforced concrete ceilings. The roof consists of a wood-steel supporting structure with fibre-cement roofing tiles.
