The alternative of an aged cabin on a lake shore in Norther Bohemia respects the distinctive natural character of the internet site and follows the cabin’s original outline, architect said.
The short of the undertaking was to give an all year spherical retreat for the clients’ yachting passion, with least typology and highest visible connections to the lake and the surrounding pine forest. The solitary pitch is a outcome of interior spatial preparing as properly as the relationship to the lake – shore axis represented by the mooring pier as a basic principle entry position.
The inside of the cabin is obtainable via the big window opening and is made as a continuous room open to the roof.
The principal focus of the space is on the extensive sights of the lake and on the connection of the cabin with its organic surroundings.
The continuity of the interior is enhanced by the unifying jangled timber cladding sealed in white oil complete, which provides it a experience of a cave like retreat. The flooring is a sand coloured cement screed relating to the sandy floor of the seashore all around the cabin.
