There aren’t many organic houses in our country, their number has been increasing rapidly, as a result of nature protection and energy savings.

Organic Housing

Můj Dům (My House) magazine, July 2016. A text about the building designed by acad. arch. Oldřich Hozman, written by Vlastimil Růžička.

Stylistic elements include in particular rounded corners – not only the outer corners of the house, but the corners of plaster in the interior, between the wall and ceiling. The corners of the top architraves around the windows, inner lining of the windows or top corners of the door panelling in the interior are also rounded. These recurring forms unify the style in which people feel good. The architecture level of the house is increased by well-processed, high quality artistic details. E.g. sheet metal covering of roof edges or retaining wall is made very carefully. It has a fine profiling. Also the endings of the beam gridirons are finished in full detail.

Healthy Kindergarten Interior

Poradce ředitelky mateřské školy (Adviser to the Director of the Kindergarten) Magazine, July 2016; text by acad. arch. Oldřich Hozman.

Pedagogy and education include certain principles, by which we accompany a child. These include a sense of truth, experiencing the beauty, and experience of the good. By designing interiors, we can assist in their formation. Character of the shapes of classrooms and their detailed design affect the mental experience of a child. They influence forming of the child’s mental capacity, since they work on the moral and social level. Interaction of environment and education leads in adulthood to transformation of the mental strength from the childhood in overall development of health.

The House that Listens to the Voices of Nature

Article for the Eco Bývanie Eco Housing magazine, which is the yearbook of the MEDIA/ST publishing, issued in March 2016; author: Branislav Koscelník

At first glance, it will surprise by the liveliness of organic shapes, boldness of solutions, but also by its naturalness and harmony of its arrangement of both outer and inner space. The house in Catalonia, Spain by the river of Fluvia is an example of the fact that when the architect and the investor are tuned to the same wavelength, having not limiting their imagination, inspiring, impressive, and unconventional piece of work can be created. The propagator of the idea of organic architecture and harmony of living, the Czech architect Oldřich Hozman makes no secret of the fact that when working on the house, he was listening to higher forces and principles of geomancy and feng shui.
