Znameni Ctyr Architekti created this adorable mountain chalet in the Czech Republic that combines traditional and modern details. The adapted staggered profile with angles outwards on both of its end walls protects the walls from rainwater. The house contains four storeys: two set into the sloping ground and two upstairs. Granite flagstones give the building a solid and hardwearing base, and laminated spruce provides the main structural frame. Oak-framed windows lend symmetry to the elevations. Inside, wooden walls and roof trusses are left exposed throughout. Additional living rooms and bedrooms can be found on the upper and lower ground floors, as well as a sauna, a wine store and a garage.
