The Overhanging Transversely Folded Roof Underscores the Resort Spa Residence in the Czech Republic | CMC Architects


Nestled in the golf and equestrian complex of the Celadná village of Czech Republic and surrounded by the picturesque landscape of the Beskydy Mountains, 'Tee House' is a resort spa residence designed by CMC Architects. The upper 'attic' part of the buildings feature the striking architectural element of recessed overhangs and folding roofs, echoes the respite of the nearby hilly landscape. The firm employed Siberian larch, dark grey plaster, dark grey Alucobond and exposed concrete to design the volumetric design of the buildings.

The village of Celadná is positioned on the easter border of the Czech Republic on the Slovak-Polish border. The area has grown tremendously in recent years and boasts an array of iconic buildings, including resort-type spas, hotels and wellness centres.

The Beskydy landscape and the well-defined orthogonal division of the old constructions of the area inspired the architects to design the 'Tee House'. This is the newest addition to the village, which is basically a housing project.

The main intention of the investors with this design was to extend the offer of services of this area with lodging facilities and wellness.


Buildings Configuration

CMC architects designed Tee House by taking cues from its natural surroundings, as a clear orthogonal structure of the existing buildings in the original equestrian facility.

The new buildings respect the original structure and orthogonal division of this area. Design team used urban configuration to accentuate the views from the individual residences; 


"The rooms on the typical floors include generously arranged loggias, which are a distinctive architectural element on the facades of the buildings, said the firm.


Unique Roof Shape

The focal point of the buildings are their roofs shape that is designed to reflect the relief of the surrounding mountain landscape.

Minimal Materials and Colours

The volumetric design of the structures are underscored by the minimal use of materials and colours.


"The intended concept of the wooden cut-outs and surfaces, contrasting the base of the dark façade, is achieved through the materials palette - Siberian larch, dark grey ALUCOBOND, dark grey plaster, and exposed concrete," explained the architects. 


The rich and pure geometry of the constructions thus becomes an arresting part of the nearby scenic location.
