The investor did try to find „his house“ thoroughly, and he did not leave anything to chance. The choice of a real estate was vital for him where it would have been possible to erect a building fully meeting not only functional but also emotional needs. A house where he intends to move increasingly his job and private activities from the metropolitan rush to, the house, which he wants to grow old with. A base for the realization of investor´s further imaginations was a steeply sloping building site having view to a water area in North Bohemia summer resort. The investor knew quite exactly what he was expecting of the project. He was turning over the functional relations and individual functionalities into details, he had his own ideas of dispositions, materials, and of overall spirit of the building.
The investor addressed architects whose existing works attracted him. At the same time, as he said, he searched for such artificers who would be different from the type and generation point of view, who would come with different but acceptable approaches meeting the order. He contacted Markéta Cajthamlová, Jiří Suchomel, Luděk Rýzner, HŠH atelier and Josef Pleskot. The last one addressed had to apologize because of another job and thus only four artificers remained in the „competition“. It was interesting that professor Suchomel was inspired by the order to set the same assignment he was working on to his architecture students of Liberec Technical University TUL.
All of the four studies documenting the approaches of the addressed authors will be reprinted in the following spreads – including one of the student works. Architect Rýzner´s study that has been finally chosen by the investor will be printed in the version that the architect had submitted for evaluation, as well as the following version that became a basic document for the project development after discussions with the investor.
