The Cikánka project, going up in the quiet villa neighbourhood of Prague - Stodůlky, has successfully swung into its second stage.


In the first stage 8 modern two-storey villas were built and sold. A further ten will be built in the second stage.


A quiet and private living

The Cikánka project is being implemented by the Bouwfonds ČR bytová výstavba development company in Prague 13, in an area of villas.


The eighteen modern villas were designed to offer living in a quiet and private residential neighbourhood and so that their concept fits in with the character of the locality.The first stage, which amounts to 8 houses, has currently been completed.


The construction of a further ten has begun and the entire project is slated for completion during the course of 2011.


"We are offering modern housing with original architecture, which is steadily finding its admirers. All of the buildings from the first stage have been sold and are gradually being moved into.


Potential buyers are already interested in more and we currently have four villas from the second stage reserved," Petr Kouřil, the Director of Bouwfonds, stated.


And he added: "Apart from a distinctive architectural conception that a person just has to fall in love with, the clients also appreciate the locality.


It is an area amidst family houses and gardens, which provides all the conveniences for comfortable living. Peace and quite and greenery are a matter of course, while all civic amenities are within easy reach.


Plus you can drive to the centre in 20 minutes and the Zličín retail zone is only 5 minutes away. It is just this connection of quality housing, a pleasant environment and easy accessibility that people expect from their new homes these days."


The popular Prokopské údolí nature reserve, which entices is visitors with relaxing walks or rigorous bike rides, is also nearby.


Construction of the Cikánka project

The villas are implemented in 4 basic types that differ in the internal layout of the house, the way in which it is situated in the terrain and the size of the house. This ranges from 132 m2 to 161 m2 and offers layouts with four or five rooms and a kitchenette.


In the second stage villas with sizes of 132 m2 and 144 m2 will be offered. The houses are built on separate lots measuring from 368 m2 to 805 m2. These are connected, however, and form a single spatial ensemble. A small square with trees was created in its centre, which contributes to the peaceful living.


The architectural design comes from Studia ADR´s architects, who primarily emphasised pure forms and their interconnection to a colour scheme. The facades are light brown or grey. The basic shapes are strictly geometric, which achieves the maximum use of the internal space.


All four spatial variations are based on similar principles and typological forms.


The goal is the maximum accentuation of the function of the main living space leading to the gardens, the quality of which is crucial for harmonious living. All of the building types have a unified modern and original architectural expression.


The interiors offer a high standard, for example triple-layered wooden floors, acacia wood on the terraces, floor convectors, Sapeli Elegant doors, Rako tiles, Kaldewei bathtubs, Keramag washbasins, Roca toilets, Faris faucets, etc.


With their exterior and interior design the Cikánka villas meet the demands of even the most demanding client.
