Fittingly titled the ‘Weekend House,’ this project was designed to be the perfect get away property located in the snowy landscape of Nosice, Slovakia.
The project was designed by the Bratislava-based studio at Pokorny Architeki, and was recently completed in 2011. The home is a great size for a vacation spot, spanning about 1,400 square feet ideal for a few couples looking to get away for a while. The home has all the essentials to help keep warm in the harsh weather conditions including an indoor jacuzzi to set the mood right.
“The core of the weekend house is a two storeys high gathering/living/eating space with a tile stove. This core is functionally extended by a roofed atrium and wellness area on the ground floor and two loftlike bedrooms on the 2nd floor.
The construction is made of layered and insulated wood pannels on the critical corners reinforced via steel profiles. The interior/exterior concept is based on the original idea (“traditional wooden house”) visually transformed in the fully wooden skin as from the outside (thermo pine) so from the inside (larch slabs) together with a up to date furnishing.”
