Taking his inspiration in the chameleon, Petr Hájek has designed a residence in which each space has a unique landscape and atmosphere. And so, in Prague, in the Czech Republic, the Chameleon House takes form, a building of daring geometry, in which each room faces one of the trees of the garden in which it was built. The lounge overlooks the apple tree, the master bedroom enjoys a view of the cherry tree, the bathroom looks onto the peach tree, the guest room onto the silver birch and the children’s room onto the walnut tree.
In addition to the room configuration bringing to mind the watchful, angular gaze of the chameleon, the project of Petr Hájek Architekti refers to the animal inspiring it through its façade, the semi-glossy covering of which reflects the colours of the garden and of the sky.
