Terrace Houses, Prague

We have designed four groups of residential terraces in a wider planned development in Prague. The site is close to the old centre of Prague Reporyje. The character of the surrounding area varies from small single family houses to apartment blocks, and the proposed new house follows the scale of the immediate residential neighbourhood.

Due to the orientation and urban conditions the house plan is proposed as L shaped with the street elevation lining up with the neighbouring houses. The house then opens towards the western quieter part of the site. A garage and car port function as a discreet buffer from street noise, supported by a dense landscaped edge.

Internally the house is divided to a social ground floor zone and a private family zone on the first floor. Importantly the ground floor expands to the exterior through an extensive terrace that completes the L shaped plan.
