Modern Lake Cabin in Czech Republic

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

Looking to reinvent the traditional lakeside cottage, while still keeping things simple, the teams at FAM Architekti and Feilden+Mawson collaborated to design the Lake Cabin.

Situated on a plot of land just outside of Prague, the small residence was built for an owner with a passion for yachting. The entire cabin’s facade is draped in timber cladding with small slits allowing natural light to illuminate the interior without intruding on the owner’s privacy. The cabin features a room upstairs, with a sleeping area in the loft, and kitchen separated from the main living space. Concrete floors cover the entire property, helping to keep it cool during the summer season, while a fireplace helps warm things up during the winter. Rounding out the interior, a large set of sliding glass doors give the owner easy access to the nearby lake.
