The project aims to develop a new residential area in Újezd nad Lesy. It comprises 12 newly built family houses – 8 single-family houses and 4 semidetached houses. The semidetached houses form a front of the existing high street, while the single-family houses are situated in the second plan and they are forming a village square, which serves as their shared public space. The project offers houses in 3 standardized sizes – single-family houses A, B and smaller semidetached houses C.

Our endeavour here is similar to other projects, as we try to offer a solution for the need to have a family house with a private garden, while saving land at the same time. Since the houses are situated in the corners of their respective plots, the system allows for better utilization of the available land. While the area of a typical plot is 800 or 1000 m2, our project requires half of the size or even less.
