The house is located on the edge of Kadaň, in a beautiful spot
offering a unique view ofa bend ofthe Ohře river.
It is set onto a natural slope whose gradient influenced the
height layout of the individual levels. Grown trees have been
preserved between the house and the street.
The main residential level - the ground floor - is one meter
above the level of the garden on the southern side, which has
virtually no impact on the landscape horizon.The ground floor

interior atrium which determines the entire spatial design ofthe
house. The atrium, located at the center of the house, connects

open, the atrium becomes a part of the exterior space.
The house was designed for a familyoffour.The first level is
occupied by the main live-in area with a kitchen,entrance halí,
service rooms and garage. Bedrooms and a bathroom are in
the attic. In addition to the master bedroom, the parents háve
a study and a dressing room. The cellared section of the house
houses a laundry room, technical facilities and a storeroom.

mica content.The loadbearing elements ofwalis and ceilings
are from ceramic materials. AU the apertures in the house are
full ceiling height with a few exceptions (the corner Windows on
the first floor are beveled). The design includes pruning bushes
in front of the house, by the French Windows, affording měře
glimpses ofthe house. From a distance, the house will thus be
subtiy integrated with the garden.
