family house Černolice

Černolice, Czech Republic; 2017-2018

architectural study

authors: Jan Foretník and Jakub Stýblo


The design of a family house is situated on the edge of the current built-up area of Černolice on the sloped plot with a beautiful, though limited view. The shape of the cross is a response to the assignment of a large building program and, at the same time, to the investor's requirement to minimize connections. The resulting shape of the object is then optically horizontally divided into smaller units to reduce the scale of the building. Regarding the surrounding area and the urban regulations, a saddle roof is proposed on the larger mass.
