Czech studio ADR s.r.o. designs a black wooden mountain lodge nestled in Czech Krkonoše Mountains with an adjacent steel terrace.
Surrounded by trees and shrubs lining the Kolben stream, the Czech mountain lodge by ADR s.r.o. is clad in black aluminium sheets and wood on its exteriors. The owner wishes the lodge to serve as a solace for ski tourists and guests of a nearby chalet. Measuring 5.3 x 5.6 mts., the contemporary lodge is raised up to provide a stunning view of the natural setting.
Mountain lodge in Czech Krkonoše Mountains
The dark exteriors serves as a striking contrast to the home’s interior, which bathe’s in the natural light that shines through the treetops. A corner glass window on the ground floor gives an impeccable view of the snowfall that blankets the area each year, while also taking advantage of the stunning views that surround the lodge.

From the Architects –
Černá Voda, a small mountain lodge, is situated next to the “old” ski run near the Pomezní Boudy border checkpoint in the Krkonoše Mountains. The original lower ski-lift station was replaced with a new wooden structure on the confluence of Kolben and Černá Voda streams, the latter of which the chalet is named after. The owner’s wish was to have a small structure to serve as a lodge for short-term guests of the owner of the nearby Tereza mountain chalet.

View from below and above the living, sleeping space
The mountain lodge is wedged into a steep north-east facing slope of Pomezní hřeben, right next to a stream. The foundations are concrete piers, and the above-ground structure is made of wood.
The exteriors clad in black aluminium sheet and wood
The roof and the side façade is blackened aluminium sheet metal, while the gable walls are clad with blackened wood. The mountain lodge stands alone on a mountain meadow, away from the village of Horní Malá Úpa; it’s surrounded by grown trees and shrubs which line the Kolben stream.
View of the stunning mountainscape
The large corner window affords a beautiful view of the Malá Úpa river and the surrounding landscape, under the dominant Sněžka peak, the highest mountain in the Czech Republic.
