A brilliant matrix of contemporary architecture, the Decin Villa is situated on the edge of a natural divide in the landscape so that each floor is consistent with the land with its orientation providing spectacular views across the Usti nad Labem countryside in the Czech Republic. A significant example of contemporary architecture, this luxury residence offers a prime example of modern living in the countryside.
Built with a structure composed of a demarcated relaxation wing and living space; both parts are notably glassed in, allowing them to be opened up during summer and enabling smooth passage from outside which can be freely accessed from the terrace. The home has a stone base that supports an exaggerated conglomeration of rooms that are partly cantilevered over the terrace and divided into separate spaces for children and parents.
The structure was architected to follow the natural incline of the property slope, incorporating a sunken base that makes the home almost intuitively appear to be a one level residence from the upper driveway. This composition ensures peaceful privacy and serenity for the exposed rear of the residence with restricted view lines and natural wind breaks allowing for year-round enjoyment. This is what relaxation is all about.
