LIKO-S, the leading production and construction family company from the Czech Republic, inaugurated the world's first living hall - LIKO-Vo on June 18, 2019.

Sanchita Residence

“Shanchita” means a “collection of memories”, in a way to treasure. The lifestyle of Dhaka has considerably changed over the last 35 years. Beautiful one unit houses with gardens have been replaced by uncaring high-rise apartments. Today’s apartments serve only to provide us with a residence and do little to become a home. The houses of the yesteryears held a rich collection of memories because families lived together, their gardens were treasured by the children to the elderly. There trees, verandas, terraces were not just elements but integral part of the life of the occupants.   The clients aspired for a 'Baganbari' - house in a garden, where their own children could grow up with ample places to play...

After-School Care Centre Waldorf School

The grounds of the Waldorf School in Prenzlauer Berg possess a unique urban positioning between socialist prefabricated structures, Wilhelminian style blocks and the green spaces of the Jewish cemetery. The school building, having undergone a spirited renovation process, is a 5-storey prefab building from the 1970s.The after-school care centre and later extensions were designed in a completely different style. The new centre docks on the school’s courtyard stretching towards the sports hall, providing the schoolyard with a structural back to the street and a clear centre. The projections and recesses create different outdoor areas for various uses. The buildings received green roofs inclined in different directions and, with the rising eave... En savoir plus

Mia Resort

MIA Resort is located on a coastal road linking Cam Ranh and Nha Trang in Central Vietnam. Man’s control over nature had left the site abandoned when the side of the mountain was excavated to build the road, and extensive rock and debris was thrown down the sloping site. The demand for infrastructure had short-sightedly rendered the land damaged and barren.However, the site presented an amazing development prospect as there was a private beach below the steep 35m drop from the road. Upon our first visit, we saw the site as an opportunity to return the rubble-filled area back to its natural beginnings by planting the seeds for nature to take over. Unlike most projects where architecture dominates the site taming nature, this project attempts... En savoir plus

Projet • By FAKROMaisons privées


Living ‘green’ is a goal for many. The owner of this family home in the Dutch town of Lent took this goal seriously. He created a building that literally became one with it’s surroundings. The house features an impressive green roof which, besides it’s unique appearance, also provides a lot of benefits. An important advantage is the natural heat and noise isolation of this type of roofing. But also purification of the air, a richer biodiversity and planned water management are named as advantages. However, proper installation and regular maintenance are crucial. FAKRO develops windows and flashings for all types of roofing. For this project they provided center-pivot windows with a flashing especially designed for green roofs. The flashin... En savoir plus
