Wooden house with half-timbered walls, insulated with pressed straw bales. On the south side of the house, there will be a greenhouse for growing vegetables. The interiors will be plastered with earthen plasters. The inner half-timbered walls will be made of non-fired bricks. In the middle of the house, there are two ovens used for heating. One of the ovens will also include a stove for cooking.
Creation of the model
The model was developed together with our clients. Later, it served as the basis for further refinement of the project.
It is important to involve as many future users as possible in the design creation. When working on a model, circumstances that one would not take into account will emerge from the work the model…
By this method of joint modelling, the inspiration is directly reflected in the mass. Through fingers and hands it is applied directly to the formed shapes. Working with clay during the modelling creates certain calm and concentrated mood. The method of joint work allows bringing not only the strengths of thinking, but also the strengths of feelings and will into the design process. Every participating person brings liveliness and joy into the process of creating the model, feeling the context and building on the work of others. It gradually results in mutual agreement about the creation of the house. All participants are able to mentally connect with the emerging design in a better way. The modelling allows a free formation of shapes. It’s a way to organic architecture.
