On a two-hectare, hilltop site over-looking the periphery of Prague, where one can see into the limitless distance (arguably one of the most fantastic places in this UNESCO city), the program called for a self-effacing villa of colossal scale – essentially an ‘invisible’ estate – for a very private person. Inspired by the client’s interest in the suprematist paintings of Malevich, latent with meaning and hidden expression, we took the site as a canvas and his brief as our medium – it was a painterly approach to volumetric problem.
