We honestly think it doesn’t take more than a simple A-frame to make a fantastic weekend home, as proven by this beautiful dwelling by Pavel Míček Architects. Located in the southern part of the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy in the Czech Republic, this weekend home spoils its inhabitants with breathtaking mountain views.
The architecture studio balances the concepts of heaviness and lightness by combining solid concrete with light larch wood. “Concrete embodies the heavy hollow platform, partially burrowed into the earth’s surface; two light larch boards, holding the free-flowing space with open views into mountain scenery, were then supported against each other on this piece of rock,” the studio explains. Despite its sloping ceilings, the home exudes ‘cozy’ instead of ‘cramped’ – a difficult feat that was pulled off successfully by the architects. Skylights slit and pierce the slanted walls in addition to the living area’s glass doors that lead out to a view-worthy terrace. The interiors are kept minimalist, with materials that mimic its exteriors to create a harmonious atmosphere all throughout. More projects by the studio here.
