A house and a grown up forest. A house made out of Finnish pine. A house hidden behind a stretch of spruces. Sitting among other cottage houses. A plot densely populated with greenery.

Nature sets a strong character to the place and the house reacts, communicates with it. The distinction between outside and inside is diminished.

A house for a couple from the Ostrava region. The house with a significantly overlapping roof and a black box sticking out. The house that smells of wood. The real centerpoint of the layout is the living space with a kitchen. The other adjacent spaces are of utilitarian character. The client's wish to visually and physically connect the house with the surrounding garden was fulfilled. The terrace with an overlapping roof becomes a shelter protecting from sun and rain, a place for breakfasts and evening drinks.

The black box. The weight. A refuge for visitors. A small independent unit taken out of the volume. Antipole to the roof and the generous glazing. It brings an accent to the composition and frees the architectonic lust towards the garden.

A house, simple in shape and volume, is made out of Honka log system. The traditional wooden house structure produced by hyper modern CNC machines together with the way it is built shifts the meaning of a wooden house towards the 21st century. The modern technology is combined with high quality Finnish timber. The system of cross lamination stabilizes the wood, which prevents from the usual problems of log houses. The entire wall structure was made and transported from Finland. Thanks to standardization assembly on site takes little time.
The house is heated with electric floor heating which can be flexibly controlled. The centerpoint of the living space is a Tulikivi stove made out of soapstone which can keep the heat for a very long time. The roof above the 1st floor can be populated with PV panels with no harm to the aesthetic appearance of the house.
