Mimosa Architekti ● Vyšehradská 320/49, 128 00 Praha 2 ●

In a well-attended competition invited by the Czech Union for Nature Conservation, our design of Water House won the first prize among many bidders.

Jury’s assessment read as follows: “The design creates straightforward symbiosis of the biotope of landscape with the Water House building. austere concept of the structure grips attention with its prominent roof that hovers over landscape and interferes minimally in its context. Landscaping of exterior areas creates a forefield to the Water House entry. The layout is subject to its interconnection with the exterior space. The two-storey structure is interconnected by means of an aquarium. Vacant areas of the house are ready for developing the theme of water. The submitted design has true architectonic qualities.”

The complete design, including jury’s evaluation, is available on the archiweb website.
