Discreet jewel in Brno city

Modern house with sandstone tiled facade with cedar wood and titan-zinc accessory. The view of the house from driveway is inconspicuous. Youcan pass by and miss it, but if you come inside you will be amazed. “The house was a real challenge, exceptional, but complicated land and against this really generous clients requirements,” says architect Rostislav Jakubecfrom the company ATX Architects. Process of birth “At the beginning of designing, the most important for us is to find out why the client actually wants to create a house and what is expected from the result,” says Mr. Jakubec. With the standard things the architect can advise.”We are interested in unusual things, for example, I would love to haveroom for design railing ‘or’ I wish to have a giant aquarium.” Then we usually create several options for the client that verify the possibilities of use of the given space,explains the architect. In this case we discussed the project rather shortly, a couple of months, says architect Jakubec. The most important things to be discussed are the look of the house and technologies of user interface.
