Czech Home Turns Its Focus to the Garden

View all 9 Photos

The Chameleon House by Petr Hajek Architekti is a six-volume home in Praha-Lipence, Czech Republic. Built in the middle of a garden, the structure holds a single room in each of its protrusions, which are positioned to face the surrounding flora. Uniform in white, the glossy walls reflect the natural lighting. Within the home, there is a foyer, a living room, a master bedroom, a children’s room, a guest room, a bathroom, and a central kitchen, all brought together by wooden floors and matching or concrete walls. The semi-open plan is divided by floor-length curtains and glass doors, which allow the level of privacy to be adjusted at any time.
