Chameleon House by Petr Hajek Architekti

Take a look at the project from Czech studio Petr Hajek Architekti – a house on the outskirts of Prague with rooms that branch out in all directions to frame views of nearby trees. Named Chameleon House, the building’s sprawling configuration also creates gaps in between the rooms, which frame sheltered garden areas that cannot be seen from inside. “The inspiration for the proposal of this house is in fact a chameleon,” said Petr Hajek Architekti. “The house is located in the centre of a garden. Each single room is oriented to one of the trees. The living room faces the apple tree, the master bedroom, the cherry tree, the bathroom faces the peach tree, the guest room, the silver spruce and the children’s room, the walnut. Each room has its unique view and atmosphere. The building is resting like a lizard in a sun-lit meadow. Eyes (windows) unrestrictedly observe the surroundings. The skin (facade), consisting of a semi-gloss coat, partly reflects the colours of the garden and the sky. ”
