Domesi Concept House for sustainable living.
This concept house stands in the spectacular natural landscape of Bohemia, in the north of the Czech Republic. The architects adopted a holistic approach to the design, and Domesi Concept House offers a new way to live sustainably.

Who wouldn’t like to live in an environmentally-friendly home that looks attractive and is not too expensive? According to the designers from the two studios prodesi (architecture structural engineering) and domesi (construction) – the best way is to spend some time in the object of our wishes before coming to a decision.

So, their Domesi Concept House, made from KVH (solid construction pinewood) rests on a gentle slope, on piles that support two thirds of the home and the patio, minimising its footprint. It was conceived as a holiday home, where visitors can experience nature without impacting on the environment.

The architects’ design philosophy is based on a holistic approach that does not focus just on reducing the power bill but that believes in the total design of the construction, offering simple and right-sized exteriors and interiors. Bespoke furnishings are also included in the design.

The building’s reduced environmental impact corresponds to passive houses, and it adopts the latest technology while at the same time retaining all the comforts of ergonomic design that is attentive to interaction with the outdoors.
