Farmhouse Extension South Bohemia

HAMR Huť architektury Martin Rajniš en tant que Architectes.

To the old farm in southern Bohemia, the investor wanted space for rest and relaxation - the observatory and the observatory. We extended the mass of one wing of the farm with a semi-transparent wooden structure made of spruce and larch. In the basic shape concept, the extension is a harmonious continuation of the original farm, but in the structure and construction it is a contrasting transparent wooden building with a Zen atmosphere.

The ground floor is folded wood. You go up the spiral stairs to the first floor on the footbridge. It connects the attic of the old building with the attic of the new one. There is only one room in each of them. Observatory in the old attic and observatory in the new extension.

In the observatory between the boards of the outer shield you can see out into the surrounding landscape.

There is darkness and privacy in the observatory and light falls only through a narrow window. However, part of the roof can be moved away at night and one can watch the stars undisturbed.

It's very nice to realize that when you look at photos, there's not much to add. We have already proclaimed several times that beauty can arise as an expression of a logical, moderate construction that uses the possibilities of wood to the consequences. At first glance, you can see how properly shaped wood can create beauty in space without the need for any ornament or "aestheticized architecture".

It is clear from the result that it was very worthwhile that the client behaved generously and invited top experts to cooperate from the beginning. Especially our good friend and collaborator of wooden construction designer Zbyněk Šrůtek. We have been cooperating with him for many years and our architectural ideas really understand his static and structural thinking. Facade suppliers and other participants in this small but even more interesting realization were similarly great. Thanks.
