PETROVA BOUDA MOUNTAIN HUT
Proposal • Area 820 m² • Principal architect Zuzana Kurz • Giant Mountains
The Giant Mountains peaks and plains contain many huts for refreshing and resting. The original Peter's hut used to be among them and it was undoubtedly one of the architectural gems. It was Johann Pittermann who had Peter's hut built there. By distorting his name the label "Petrova" has emerged. The next owner converted the hut into a hotel with a flat, grassy roof, a glazed balcony and a veranda. The facade was decorated with a two-colored slate creating specific patterns. Petrova bouda Mountain hut was certainly one of the most progressive and most visited buildings back then. The hut fell into disrepair for a long time and eventually burned down unhappily. All that remained of the original building was the underground floor, parts of the perimeter walls and the transformer station. The proposal presented here by us is an attempt to start in the original place fresh and considerately restore the spirit of the original cultural monument.
The original Peter's hut were located at a junction of three footpaths, which as if flowed freely through it. This particular three-way and the imaginary blending through the object became the main inspiration for the concept of the new architecture. Our version of Peter's hut seeds the essence of a path into the building itself. It flows throughout the hotel unnoticed, unrestricting its intimate daily buzz. The building itself was designed as a sealed case, which is represented by a stone-concrete shell. Cozy, individually insulated wooden cores are set in it. In these cores, all the life of the hut takes place - work, rest, sleep, hospitality, etc. The space formed between the sealed case and the inner wooden cores is „the path“. It serves mainly as a veranda, where you can rest, snack or perhaps just run through and freely continue your journey in the beautiful Giant Mountains.
