A Rustic Simplicity Characterizes This Czech Mountain Lodge

This a small mountain lodge, called Černá Voda, is situated next to the “old” ski run near the Pomezní Boudy border checkpoint in the Krkonoše mountains. It was designed by the Czech architectural firm ADR s.r.o.

From the architects:

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.

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.
