Jakub Holas Jakub Holas   New volumes "grow" in and out on each floor of the house, including the roofs. The horizontal and vertical constructions of the built-in parts are designed from a wooden building, lined on the outside with larch slats in the oblique direction and in the interior with spruce boards in the vertical direction.

Esterházy Castle - Reconstruction of the West Wing

When visiting Eszterháza and catching a glimpse of the castle, a visitor’s first impression will be the symbiosis of unity and grandeur. The majestic inner court and the median risalit that can be seen from the park almost entirely mask the characteristics of the previous building eras. The challenge of design was of interest to us from the aspect of clarifying the relationship with this property and the question of heritage which, when considered more closely, raised a series of questions. The entire west wing hosts exhibitions, where it is primarily the high standards and wealth of a bygone era which are exhibited. Spaces are used in a different way which free us from some restraints: we were able to abstain from attempting t... More
