House of Many Faces Prague

How to place a large number of residential units on a small, very sloping land so that the whole fits into the existing location of residential villas?

House of Many Faces. From the street very inconspicuous, set in a series of solitary two-storey villas, respecting the context of the site. Two houses, each slightly different, complementing the existing block of buildings and creating a green heart.

The residential complex in Prague – Reporyje fills a block between Smichovska-Vserubska streets.

Two buildings have been designed on a very sloping site, that creates a green courtyard in between.

On the upper street, there is designed a simple rectangular mass with a gabled roof, with parking spaces set on the ground floor of the house. On the T-shaped facade takes place a game of square window openings.

When viewed from the courtyard, the house reveals its surprising size. A four-storey, quite rugged mass appears with balconies, terraces, loggias and front gardens.

On the lower street, there is designed a terraced house with three residential units. The mass also respects the surrounding buildings and the height of the cornice is connected to the neighboring building. Each house has its own garage, spacious garden, English backyard and small balcony.

The houses are designed simply, the basis is white plaster and anthracite gray elements of roof sheeting, window openings or garage doors. As a softening element was used wood, which appears on the partition walls, terraces, staircases. A corridor runs through the whole block, a wooden “tunnel” connecting both streets.

The set offers a wide range of housing units – two-roomed with loggias, three-roomed with front garden, two-storey duplexes with a roof terrace and three-storey units with a generous garden.
