Residential houses in Brno
The plasticity of seemingly flat things, a fine game of lights and shades on planes and grating, a relative scale - a compact forest, a panel house - a slab. An important motive is the position on the edge of a group of panel houses and the elementary goal is creating architecture of buildings as a transition from a panel development to a free landscape - flats as close to the forest as possible, a forest penetrating in to the flats - large windows, wood to balconies. The design emphasizes simple clear shapes and proportions of the whole building and details. The north fašade facing the panel houses is completely flat; their articulation projecting the internal arrangement of sections and corridors materializes in shallow embossments on the basic mass' level - an exemption are the broken and emphasised entrances to the buildings or individual sections, as the case may be. The south front is on the contrary, richer in shapes and materials.
