Nový Oldřichov is a small town located in the north of the Czech Republic. This region is famous not only for its deeply rooted glass craft tradition but also for its beautiful hilly scenery with countless basalt sculptures made by nature. The black house with a dramaticly shaped roof and the characteristic colour of a charred wood, maintains the natural harmony of the site.
The purpose was clearly defined: a small barrier-free house with a big garrage for a sporty married couple for „when we‘ll go into retirement“ – age.
The interior is logically divided according to the functions – garrage, utility rooms, social and living space andending with private rooms. The facades to the road are practically blind compared to the huge glazing to the courtyard. The facade to the garden side is completed with a large terrace as the contact between interior and exterior is a priority for our clients who are fallow-deers fanciers.
