This architectural story takes place on a steep southern slope, offering a captivating view of a scenic valley. This location showcases the transformation of the landscape into a unique home that combines the villa’s minimalist approach with the wildness of the surrounding garden.
Not every plot of land is the same, and it’s precisely due to the unique characteristics of this plot that our story gains a special touch. It’s situated on a steep southern slope, with access from the north and a sprawling garden. All of this creates the perfect setting for a villa that opens up to views of a picturesque valley.
The architectural concept of the villa revolves around dividing it into several structures thoughtfully embedded into the slope. The above-ground floor, significantly extending beyond the underground level, stands out as the centerpiece of the house, subtly embedding itself into the northern side of the slope. Added to this are the structures of the terrace and the pool, bringing vitality to the overall appearance and character of the house. The villa is further divided into a social area with a living space and kitchen, and a private area with bedrooms featuring large glass entrances that offer a view into the valley.

Upon entry, we are immediately enchanted by the glass-encased entrance hall, which provides a glimpse of the valley and hints at the exceptional nature of this place. The residential area offers a spacious living room with a kitchen and dining area, complemented by a pantry and a laundry room.
The living room, located on a higher floor, leads us to captivating views of the surrounding landscape. The interior boasts clean and bright colors, accentuated by striking artworks by artist Martin Sněhota, specially created for this interior.
The private section of the villa includes a garage, spacious enough for two cars, and a space for a workshop and motorcycles. Additionally, there is the master bedroom with its private bathroom and walk-in closet, a children’s room or office with its own bathroom and toilet. The bathroom and toilet are easily accessible from the garage and the entrance hall.
The underground level opens up further possibilities, featuring children’s rooms, a guest room, a small kitchenette, a dressing room, a bathroom, and a utility room. From these rooms, there is access to a large multi-level terrace with a pool, adding an extra dimension to the house.

The villa’s materials have been carefully chosen to create a fresh and bright impression. White plaster and white stone cladding dominate the main structure of the house, while glass surfaces allow light and views to permeate the space.
The story of this villa is a tale of the fusion of design and the environment, where architecture becomes an integral part of nature, forming a perfect symbiosis.
