Dob?í? Family House, Prague
Dob?í? Family House is located in the colony of weekend cottages near a game preserve, which colony consists of small sized quaint houses, each of them being built according the taste and skill of its individual owner.

As to its shape our house seems, a little, a kind of freak, too. Its forms were motivated by the wish of its future occupiers to have an unusual, environmentally soft house (?no box?) built of natural materials.
The house is located in the northern part of the plot, whose southern part is used as a garden. The house dimensions unfold from the size of surrounding buildings and are subject to local regulations. The house layout follows from its orientation and location, with the living areas facing to the garden, while service rooms are located in the northern part. The ground floor is designed with the view to emphasizing its open character and easy access to the garden.
