Villa, Prague 10

Work in Progress

The currently developed residence in Prague aims to blur the difference between garden and interior. The whole plot is a house, inhabitable in its entirety, with conical pods floating on the terrain. Each has a different program and orientation, but they all inherit a common scheme. Some merge, while a few stay separate.

The site is simply divided into three zones related to medieval garden types and programmed accordingly. The hortus contemplationis is a simple square surface divided into areas of greenery, water or wood, entering gradually the interior. The hortus catalogii is a utility zone with plants and a greenhouse, as well as the home office. Finally, hortus ludi contains programs for play and relaxation.
