Within the region of Vysocina, Czech Republic, there are tight building restrictions that provided a unique challenge to the architects of this modern fishing cabin. Proportionate to the size of this pond in the countryside sits a small vacation home that could be no taller than two short storeys and no broader than 50 square meters. Inspiration for this quaint rural getaway became the traditional fishing shack.

Jiří Weinzettl of Atelier111 Architekti designed a dwelling made up of four units that each look like individual fishing cabins. In this case, three were adjoined to form a continuous interior space, while the fourth sits slightly aside as a separate porch that overlooks the water. The tiny nature of this house, with its generous windows and beautiful wood paneling makes it the perfect setting for appreciating this central European landscape.
