"The Tuscan Spirit in Brno". This was the task of the rehabilitation of a corner house from the beginning of the 20th century belonging to our friend and professional companion (structural engineer). The existing end terrace house with an articulated pitched roof is transformed into a strict rectangular volume based on the most of the existing structure. It is completed by one-storey extension with a garage and an entrance space which changes the orientation of the main access and defines a new private atrium serving the living space. The outside corner is according to the former composition accented by a raised bay with a higher roof parapet.

The used materials paraphrase the Sienna Piazza del Campo while combining various types, formats and shapes of bricks.
