The task for kaa-studio was to design an overall reconstruction of the suburban house in a retro style in Lány, Czech Republic. The architects worked with the original mass, only remodelling the interior layout and window openings. The residential attic was used in the existing volume; kaa-studio only brightened the roof. The only new annex is a new wooden patio/summer entrance, attached to the garden facade.

 

New openings appeared into the facades due to the change in the layout; the original ones were revised and locally adjusted. In the southern facade, a strip of window was made across the entire width of the object for more light and contact with the forest. The attic was brightened to the north by a strip of large roof windows, opening the space to the garden and views of the Lány horizon.
