Family houses have always been designed with an intention to fulfill
clients' demands and satisfy my architectural ambition.
"My home my castle" is great majority of people dream, very
often a past time dream. Contrary to the other field of architecture,
of family house architecture is a conservative area of architecture.
Many times I tried to convert some traditionally oriented clients
to more contemporary thinking, to contemporary shape, modern form.
I never wanted to be an professional working for the purpose of fee,
but wanted also to enjoy in process of design and building up house.
I always wanted to be proud what I had done. If good results have
been achieved, that was our common success, clients' and mine.
Dealing with clients, I never knew what was supposed budget for their
family house, many times even they did not know that or there have
been a disproportion between wishes and possibilities.
In functional sense house is alike small town (Alberti). It should
be protected, visually and physically, to have privacy. Inside there
is a square/living room for all and ego space, own room for each
member of family. Position of entrance, living room and vertical
communication are basic decisions which generate the project. For
good comfort it is very important to catch a nice views, and to set
proper orientation for good insulation.
On those projects, my personal feelings and change can be noticed.
Some are with motto exuberance is beauty with stress on formal elements
richness, some are modest, going to minimalism.
I always wanted for my house to become home of the family.
