A pension in Borová Lada
The building of a family pension lies in Borová Lada in a protected landscape area of Šumava. It has the capacity of 20 beds and two long lease apartments. The pension consists of three structures; two are meant for housing and one, ground-floor basement building, is holding complementary services and technical background joint for both dwelling structures. The building structures are organized into the shape of a letter L and thus create a private court. This architectonic element is inspired by a traditional village development, where a court is a central element of the disposition and serves as a half-open social area protecting the inhabitants from sounds of traffic and unfavorable weather, mainly north-west winds in this case.
The character and shape of the windows of the exposed building sections correspond with the typical architecture of this region. Those parts of the building invisible from the country or its’ immediate surroundings are equipped with French windows, transmitting generous optical connection of interior and exterior. Mostly, natural materials are used; stone facing, wood brattice paneling, slate roofing. Windows are designed as aluminum with low-energy glazing.
