Nový Oldřichov is a small town located in the north of the Czech Republic. The region is famous not only for its deeply rooted glass craft tradition, but also for its beautiful hilly scenery with countless basalt sculptures created by nature. The black house with its dramatically shaped roof and characteristic colour of charred wood, preserves the natural harmony of the site. The purpose was clearly defined: a small barrier-free house with a big garage for a married and sporty couple’s future days of retirement. The interior is logically divided according to functionality– the garage, utility rooms and social and living space connect to private rooms. The facades facing the road are practically blind in contrast with the direct glazing to the courtyard. The facade to the garden side is completed with a large terrace as the contact point between the interior and exterior, which was a priority for our clients who are deer breeders.
