A Family Home in Prague With Concrete, Wood, + Playful Details

Located in Prague, Czech Republic, House for Dorothy was designed by boq architekti who were hired during the late stages of construction to design the interior for a family. The interior showcases concrete and wood as the materials of choice, which are topped off with playful details throughout. On the main floor, the open living space feels bright and open with surrounding windows and sliding glass doors that lead to the outdoor space.

The designers keep the color palette neutral with the use of white, anthracite grey, and natural wood, along with the occasional curated use of color.

The central living room features two white bookcases framing the staircase with space in the middle for a projection screen. When the screen is rolled up, the minimalist wooden staircase with glass railing stands out and cleverly disguises storage underneath.

A massive kitchen island allows plenty of space for food prep. A dropped ceiling above the island mirrors its shape and offers ambient light as it’s backlit.
