Villa in Decín

Villa in Decín Studio Pha

Description:
The initial task was mainly to find the right location for a home (villa) on a large area, with its orientation providing views of the countryside and city. The house is situated on the edge of a natural divide in the landscape so that each floor is consistent with the land. The stone base supports each exaggerated conglomeration of rooms, which are partly cantilevered over the terrace and divided into parts for children and parents.
