Zen Houses By Petr Stolín Architekt

Dec 30, 2016

The way we work is changing. People are increasingly clocking their hours remotely as full time employees or simply working as dedicated freelancers. It makes sense then that as we change how we work, the buildings we spend the most of our time in should change accordingly. Or at least that seems to be the thesis behind Petr Stolín Arhitekt’s Zen Houses.

These houses are split into three primary areas; the living area, the open courtyard, and the work area. The work area and the living area are identical in size, but vary slightly when it comes to the interior. In an attempt to mimic the look of a blank page or empty canvas, the work area features a white interior on both the ground floor and loft, while the living area of the home features a darker interior. While both areas are relatively small – just three yards in width – the large windows flood the space with light and give the impression of a more open area. To add onto this light open feel, the exterior of the building is covered in an translucent acrylic panel that exposes the wooden frame of the building. All things said – this project looks better than most houses or offices combined. Prices are available on request. [Purchase]
