The newly constructed suburban villa by Nacházel Architekti is a home for a young family of four with a great affinity for sports and art located in the suburbs of Prague.

The terrain of this property slopes slightly away from the driveway, allowing architects to take the unique approach of locating the parking on the roof of this one story home. The house's layout is inspired by characteristic floor plans of Renaissance and Baroque mansions. Four separate wings divide the parcel into four respective gardens with like-rooms facing the same outdoor space. The main entrance and common garden areas are planted with trees and will eventually develop into a lush park-like setting.

The main staircase in first visible volume with a garage leads down to the public living area while it keeps the private entries discreet. The rooms in each wing are connected along a single corridor providing a vista through the entire suite of rooms. The enfilade serves as a walkway through the house as the spaces spread out one after another. Four separate wings divide the parcel into four respective gardens with like-rooms facing the same outdoor space and therefore each garden has a specific character whose privacy is controlled by a concrete fence.

The house showcases a very honest and humble materials pallets. It is a fully concrete building. Concrete staircase and peripheral load bearing wall are exposed in a raw form, while other walls and floors are polished white. For bathroom and swimming pool cladding is used a natural stone, whereas for wardrobe panelling and fixed furniture is used wood veneer with a special attention to fine detail.
