Usually, architects like to go wild when they design their own homes, but Igor Lichý actually decided to go with a more conservative approach when he sketched out this wonderful residence in Bratislava, Slovakia. Villa Inga was completed in 2012, and it was built using classic, durable materials such as mineral wool, burnt brick and some plasterboard. Functionality was of utmost importance during the construction process, not to mention versatility, since the abode needed to be able to adapt to future lifestyle changes.
The terrace faces north, and it is linked to the kitchen and street. It is actually a semi-enclosed patio, which acts as a microclimate during the hot days of summer. In order to make sure that the other rooms would benefit from a direct link with nature, they were orientated towards the garden. The front part of the residence is made out of concrete, and it boasts lively designs of animals courtesy of Peter Bařinka.
