The attic has been designed as an open space, for now. New openings appeared in the facades due to the change in the layout, with the original openings revised and adjusted. On the southern facade, a strip of window was made across the entire width of the home to achieve more light and contact with the forest.
The attic was brightened to the north by a strip of large roof windows, opening the space to the garden and views of the Lány horizon.
The neighbouring forest edge and two old spruces in the front garden were all significant for the location where the house stands. In response to this, we wanted the house to have the colour of the forest, so the facades are dark, grey-brown.
The difference in height between the entrances to the main residential floor and the garden level is negotiated using field banks/green hills, reinforced with rough stone. In the reconstruction, we used materials and craftsmanship corresponding to the context of the original house, i.e. the classical building materials – brick, plaster, stone, wood, ceramics and copper.
For the interior design, we wanted an ordinary feel, rural simplicity and functionality. In addition to the chairs, we also designed almost all the wooden furniture.
