Traditional ski resort under Bukova mountain in the Orlické Mountains. A place for winter sports and summer recreation.
Holiday chalet from the 1980s, which was created on the site of a defunct cottage. Stone and brick masonry, wood, truss with a saddle roof. Distinctive stone chimney body.
The architecture of recreational buildings of the 1980s is preserved and developed by the application of a green saddle roof. Two smaller extensions are added to the original mass - the wooden mass of the entrance area and the glass mass of the conservatory.
Silver wooden structures, facades made of heat-treated wood. The interior walls of the ground floor are lined with light HPL boards, on the floor yellow marmoleum is used. Interior wall lining and floor of the attic are made of yellow colored MDF boards. Black aluminum window frames and glazed surfaces are used. The roof, the main mass of the cottage, planted with greenery, blends with the surrounding nature.

Spacious entrance vestibule accessible from the porch. Family room, bathroom with shower and integrated steam bath, winter garden/conservatory with a whirlpool and views of the countryside. The original staircase to the attic with two sleeping rooms. Practical and efficient interior furniture.
fiberboard, truss insulated with fibreboard insulation.
Retention green saddle roof with sedum plants prevents overheating in summer. Heating with fireplace insert with hot air chamber for the conservatory. Additional underfloor electric heating and ladder dryers. Compact air-to-air heat pump for cooling, heating and dehumidification of the conservatory. In winter, passive energy is gained through the glass roof of the conservatory.
The surrounding greenery is preserved - century-old maple, ornamental shrubs and meadows. The retention green roof keeps the water in the landscape and blends with the mountain landscape in long-distance views.
