Komon architekti is a Prague primarily based structure studio based by Lucie Roubalová and Martin Gaberle in 2017. We’re companions and college classmates from the School of Structure on the CTU in Prague. Along with architects Bořek Peška and Jana Drtinová we make up a small crew that permits us to present particular person consideration and care to every of our tasks.
We design tasks of various scale, from interiors, the place each element issues, to industrial halls or public park. Engaged on totally different scales doesn’t imply we use totally different design processes. At all times partaking our feelings in addition to our rational considering, we search singular options. Singular within the sense that they’re of a single, united concept, the place every little thing is expounded and tied collectively. The result’s modestly refined and calm.
A superb working relationship with the shopper is extra necessary to us than a giant or engaging commision. We take heed to necessities and respect means. We count on an analogous type of respect when presenting our designs. Our objective is for the shopper to be pleased with the end result. Which is why we seek the advice of the design from the primary sketch to the final element.
We’re within the attic of a Nineteen Thirties townhouse in Prague Libeň. An condo was constructed right here within the Nineteen Nineties. However there have been too many rooms, greater than the shopper wanted, anyway. The enjoyment of open attic area was misplaced within the muddle. Our job was to seek out it once more.
The peak is an important high quality in any attic. With that in thoughts, we open up the lounge to create a double-height area accentuated by a tall bookshelf on one of many partitions. Within the centre of the condo we insert a brand new core: a black wood field to hide a small lavatory, make up the steps and catwalk on the second stage, whereas nonetheless permitting daylight deep into the doorway corridor. This manner we simplified the structure with out resorting to structural adjustments.
The open plan kitchen lounge is positioned on the backside of the two-level condo. A pull down projection display screen is put in between two structural posts in the midst of the open plan room. The kitchen with island has further space for storing hidden within the black field. The second stage is extra non-public. Black wood catwalk above the lounge connects the bed room with a second lavatory. A rooftop terrace might be accessed from the bed room by means of a French window.
The fabric palette is decreased down to grease handled veneer for the black field, oak veneer flooring, and terrazzo for the kitchen worktops, backsplash and loo surfaces. White color tones are used for the remainder of the furnishings, and white wall paint. The uncovered roof truss parts and metal posts in the lounge are left naked. Plain linear lighting within the kitchen underscores the uncooked character and geometry of the area, making a juxtaposition with the 2 elegant glass chandeliers within the open plan lounge.
The shopper skilled some adjustments in his private life through the last part of the development and requested for value reductions. In an effort to economize we made some detailing adjustments that wouldn’t have an effect on the entire venture. In the long run we managed to keep up the unique daring architectural idea.
