The ŠTAJNHAUS has not been a project the ŠTAJNHAUS has been a procedure. This house with a Renaissance core stands correct at the foot of the chateau hill, in the former Jewish quarter of Mikulov (a. k. a. Nikolsburg). All through its existence, it has suffered a substantial amount of scars, it has gone through tens of reconstructions and operations. All of this have altered the house past recognition. It has maintained its nearly medieval picturesqueness.
ORA Architects: We came to a “pudding stone.” The more person layers, spaces and surprising circumstances we uncovered, the far more revisions and alterations our undertaking we had to make in our venture and this lasted, in truth, until the finish of realization. In the beginning, we did not have a clue in which we would come to in the finish.
We were searching for a limit what time we could come back to and for a level when we ought to rather go on a new journey. But we nonetheless wished to protect the home as an natural unit. You will not locate a straight wall or a rectangular opening in the home, so we had to reinvent and remake to measure all the factors, which the investor was compliant with.
Initially, our work was just interior style. Progressively, nonetheless, we realized that the interior and exterior could not be solved separately, as area and the shapes have a tendency to mix and develop an indivisible unit. The home has been reconstructed for the wants of a guest home, a part of it will be utilised as a private flat of the proprietor. Every single room is exclusive every has its particular atmosphere. And there are wine cellars below the residence, which have come back to their unique use. Photo credits: Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNice
