Petr Hajek Architekti designed this beautiful branching single-family home in Prague with 360-degree views of its surroundings. Inspired by chameleons, the house sits in the middle of a meadow with each of its minimalist rooms oriented towards different areas of the garden.
The skin of the house was covered in a semi-glossy coat that reflects the colors of its surroundings like an amphibian. The living room faces the apple tree, the master bedroom looks onto a cherry tree, the bathroom is oriented towards the peach tree, the guest room towards the silver spruce, while the children’s room boasts views of a beautiful walnut tree.
The house is subtly divided into “house spaces” and “garden spaces”, which describe areas dominated by different views. Thanks to the fact that the floor is positioned low on the ground, the interior spaces feel connected to the outside and seem to draw nature deep into the volume of the house.
