Date of completion / approval of the project January 2021

The investor bought a stainless steel swimming pool and was looking for a solution to integrate it operationally and visually into a previously sensitively reconstructed family villa in a quiet part of the Bílé Předměstí in the city of Pardubice. In the end, the crucial decision for the location and technical solution was to give swimmers a clear view of the thoroughly maintained garden all year round and at the same time enjoying a countercurrent swimming machine. The generous investor also agreed with the new construction of a second building, which will finish the garden better than the back wall of the neighboring garages. The open salla terrena eventually transformed into a lockable outdoor covered space with pleasant seating even in the cold and damp weather of the ending autumn. A small garden storage shed was built for garden tools and bicycles indispensable in Pardubice. It connects to the paved courtyard and at the same time prevents views from the street to the private garden. Some visions remained only on paper, many details were buried by the „creativity“ of the craftsmen. Nevertheless, the result in the form of three new buildings, with the unifying use of the supporting structure made of larch wood, is widely used by a satisfied investor and his grandchildren.

Swimming pool: load-bearing frame construction - glued larch wood, stainless steel pool with countercurrent, heating and ventilation by air-conditioning unit, aluminum windows, green roof, external plinth cladding and lintel with cetris boards.

Outdoor kitchen: load-bearing steel frame construction, cetris wall and ceiling tiling, flat roof, frameless sliding folding glazing, versatile fireplace insert, kitchen fume hood.

Garden house: load-bearing frame construction - glued larch wood, aluminum sectional garage door, safety glass, flat roof.
