A sweet transformation
Kamil Mrva Architects Architectural studio in Czech Republic was commissioned to reconstruct a home / studio in Kojetín near Nového Jičína (why, of course!) from a former 1862 barn. While this is basically a one-room space for living and working, a family house nearby is planned for the future. The sleeping / WC area is behind the mod curtain divider.
I love the proportions of this little house, the materials, its situation overlooking a valley, and the way it reminds me of the cozy feeling I have for Philip Johnson's Glass House. – GF
