The villa is located in the central part of the village, on a sloping allotment in the inner part between the allotments of the already existing family houses. The disadvantage of the allotment is the gradient of slope to the north, the advantage is the quiet location and views of the historic centre of nearby Znojmo and the valley of the river Dyje. These views captivated the investor so much that they became one of the main subjects of his assignment and house design. For the local environment, we deliberately chose a simple volume of construction nothing more was necessary.

The design of the house is significantly affected by the properties of the location. There is only a narrow driveway to the allotment and the house and it also is at the highest point of the property. We designed the level of the entrance and the main residential floor to be the same as the driveway. The house therefore has an inverse layout - there is a garage, entrance, generous living space and a separate part of the bedroom on the upper floor. On the lower floor are the rooms of family members and a large terrace with a connection to the residential part of the garden, covered by the console of the upper building. Both floors are barrier free connected by a lift. To ensure the perfect view of Znojmo from the living rooms, the upper floor is equipped by panoramic glazing with electrically sliding portals and a glass frameless railing. The primary material of the facades is cladding made of fiber-reinforced concrete planks. The portal at the end of the distinctive console is artistically accentuated by a thick corten sheet metal cladding. The villa has a reinforced concrete load-bearing structure, non-load-bearing structures are bricked. The unified design also includes a complete custom interior.
