The village of Samotín is located in the very heart of the Vysočina Region, about 14 km north from Nové Město na Moravě, between Kadov, Sněžné, Milovy and Blatiny, in the large protected area of the CHKO Žďárské vrchy.
On the sloping plot of a former house there is situated an object of a timeless archetypal character, with a strict rectangular ground floor plan and a gable roof, with axially placed windows in the gables and symmetrical chimneys. The compact volume of the house is “cut out” from the northern part by three equal and regularly set openings forming covered entrance spaces to the apartments. The southern facade is based on the similar principles of four equal and regularly set glass openings leading to the terraces, partly recessed under the surrounding terrain and ended by a covered platform cut into the slope.
