Contemporary Weekend Cottage in the Czech Republic

Contemporary Weekend Cottage in the Czech Republic

An old stone basement served as the foundation for this new contemporary weekend home in the Czech Republic. The home's design by architect Pavel Horák of Prodesi | Domesi embraces the appealing and simple "house" shape and is clad in untreated larch — a bountiful local hardwood known for its toughness.

One of the more interesting features is the use of large folding doors that allow the interior to be opened up to the backyard — or to close off the porch in winter and inclement weather.
