Relation to Project : Complex project documentation in all its stages including engineering services.
Melikana is found on kilometre 84.5 on the highway D1 from Brno to Prague. The build respects the necessary capacity and needs of similar type of building at a busy highway, as well as local customs and surrounding nature. The building is situated across a gently sloping land. Its plan is a simple rectangle; it has one partly recessed storey, two storeys above the ground and a habitable attic. The compact volume of the house with a pitched roof featuring a regular raster of dormers was selected with respect to the local weather conditions. Materials respect local building traditions, economic aspects and the time when the motel was built – roofing, brick structure as well as plastic windows.
The build was included in the guide through the best European motels published by Scania Co.
