Location Pruhonice, Czech Republic
2015 Baumit Façade of the Year
2015 Czech Grand Prix Awards - Honourable mention
Jestico + Whiles was appointed to design a luxury private villa in the heart of the prestigious Pruhonice, near Prague.
The client’s vision was to create a family home which fuses clear lines and minimalist spaces with a maximum visual and physical connection with the external landscaped gardens.
The building is conceived as a landscaped artwork where the whole south façade is transparent, allowing natural light to flood the whole living space.
The north façade, by contrast, is created from a series of living picture frames, each of which defines a particular view or object.
The whole building is designed as an intelligent home utilising the latest available technologies for lighting, audio visual, thermal comfort and security, and achieved a high level ‘A class’ energy rating.
