Located in the south Bohemian region of Pisek, the stunning building was a winning competition entry. Designed by Prague-based e-MRAK, it provides information to visitors while serving as an admin hub for the area. With an area of 6,436 sq ft, this stunning woodland lodge is shaped like a wooden box sliced in half by the hallway.

The building’s facade is composed of different layers that connect the interior to the natural world. A skin of alternating wooden slats help to regulate the amount of natural light that filters inside, and the building’s shape was inspired by the form of a stack of lumber.
