Brick House in Brick Garden / Jan Proksa

Traditional villages in the Southern Moravia region of the Czech Republic are characterized by their distinctive urban planning. The streets are lined with L-shaped row houses neighbouring each other on narrow rectangular plots, each with its own long and narrow backyard. A single multi-generational family home typically consists of three parts: the street-facing house inhabited by parents with their children, a home for the grandparents bordering on a courtyard, and the remaining lot to the rear of the property which was traditionally used for small-scale farming. In general, the front-facing houses are more spacious and feature more elaborate construction techniques. The facade, for example, the house’s public presentation to the neighbourhood, is plastered and coloured in light natural tones. The rear buildings, however, typically remain unplastered, as such a solution was an unnecessary expense. The use of exposed brick architecture for the rear buildings was a simple, durable, and cost-effective solution which nonetheless radiated familiarity and warmth. Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceI decided to respect this tradition in my plans, using bricks for the construction in the rear of the property. The building is long and narrow, conforming to the historical shape of the lot. However, I departed from tradition on one point, in terms of structural planning: whereas a typical house would be one elongated L-shaped structure, I decided to detach the existing front-facing house from the new addition. Both houses thus retain their individual identity. Save this picture!Floor PlanThe flat roof further emphasizes the simple elegance of the new structure. It evokes and celebrates the perpendicularity of the property, as if the façade itself were an additional property-line fence. The exposed-brick façade, spilling over into an exposed-brick courtyard, also defines the boundary of the backyard garden. The single-floor floor plan is very simple and functional. The main room features an open kitchen and a large table, abutting in a non-frame sliding window with views on the garden. Adjacent, there is a bedroom with a narrow bathroom.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceWith this construction, it was my aim to create a modest yet fully-functional living space that reflects and respects its surroundings.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessPastoral Center of Moscavide / Plano Humano ArquitectosSelected ProjectsSon Yang Won Memorial Museum / Lee Eunseok + Atelier KOMASelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© BoysPlayNice+ 20 Share Architects: Jan Proksa Area Area of this architecture project Projects CopyHouses•Prušánky, Czech Republic ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area: 55 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs “COPY” Brick House in Brick Garden / Jan ProksaSave this projectSaveBrick House in Brick Garden / Jan Proksa Manufacturers: Vola, Zumtobel, Nieuw rood bont gesinteld Products translation missing: ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeJan ProksaOfficeFollowProductsGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPrušánkyCzech RepublicPublished on June 09, 2017Cite: “Brick House in Brick Garden / Jan Proksa” 09 Jun 2017.
