Czech studio e-MRAK designed this stunning wooden building, which is inspired by a lumber stack. The new Pisek City Forest Administration building sits at the edge of a remote forest in the Czech Republic. It's made from local wood and glass, and it features bright wide interiors filled with plenty of natural light.
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.
