The recreational house is designed in the urban-rural setting of the highest mountain in the Podkrkonoší region. Its barn-like appearance perfectly blends in with the surrounding landscape. The house is designed with axial symmetry in mind, which is reflected in the layout and on the façades.

Surrounded by meadows and existing vegetation, the house utilizes all available areas of the land to allow clients to enjoy the peace and beauty of the surrounding scenery. The design also includes a biotope with a mole located at the bottom of the plot, perfectly integrated into the existing topography, providing an additional opportunity for recreation.
