Complete reconstruction of the villa • Area 210 m² • Principal architect Zuzana & Jan Kurz
The original task was to cosset the space of a beautiful, spacious villa on the outskirts of Prague. The client wanted to embellish the interior with paintings on the walls, replace the old sofa and do some other small adjustments. As it is our good habit, we had an open discussion with the client and through individual considerations, came to the common conclusion that the current layout of the house, in many respects, does not meet the real needs of the owners. Confidence in the overall process was sealed by the first layout designs and so the villa was awaiting a general reconstruction of the interior. Our main task was to remodel the house for the real needs of all two-legged and four-legged family members and to propose equipment for all individual nooks and crannies, from floors, through tiles, handles, switches to the last vase on the shelf.
In the design process, we really played around with individual details. Often it is the small details that makea striking difference between the interior, where we feel good and the one where we feel great, although we may not be able to name why.
For important details we also consider something far more complex, such as the structure or color of the floors and walls, their application and mutual symbiosis with the other, more subtle elements of the equipment. For the interior of the villa, we designed our own composition of wooden floors, lights from Bomma, hand-woven wool carpets by Maiman, a dining table or a wooden island, which serves as a generous storage space and proudly dominates the living and kitchen area. Owners can already enjoy their very new yet same old villa, in which they are surrounded by pleasant natural materials that will please the touch and warm the soul. And we are looking forward to introducing it to the world in all its glory soon.
