Palkovice House by Qarta Architecture (11)

Palkovice House is a single-family house designed by Praha-based Qarta Architecture.

Project description: The house is situated in the periphery of Palkovice, nearby Frýdek Místek. From this site there is the view on the Beskydy mountains. The first idea was to reconstruct the old house on this parcel. The original house was situated in the middle of the garden and the architecture of the house was a product of the nineties of the 20th century. After a long effort to modify the old house and to adapt it for the new requirements, we found out, that this was not the right path to go. So we decided to build a new house.

This idea allowed us to place a new house in the back part of the site, so the house has a view of the mountains and at the same time is facing the south. Another added value of this solution is that the owner can live in the old house, while the new one is being constructed. The concept of the house is also based on the requirement of living on one height level. The solution was very easy on this flat land.

The next important point was to create a terrace, patio and atrium not only as a relaxing zone, but also as a connection between the interior and exterior. Interesting elements of the house are the rooflights in the children’s room and the entrance hall. Outdoor atriums with greenery placed inside the house are an enlivening of the interior.

Palkovice House is designed to the individual zones such as: part of the garage, entrance zone, or private area. The private area – the children’s room with its own sanitary facilities follows the entrance area. Another part – the semi-private area is made up of the kitchen, the dining room, living room and the covered outdoor terrace. In the northern part of the house is situated a cloakroom, bedroom, bathroom and a study room.

Palkovice House is materially conceived as a combination of stone, wood and glass. Stone permeates from the exterior to the interior. Glass is in large areas for a maximum connection with the exterior and valuable views. The stone walls are harmonized with wooden paneling, beams and wooden floors.
