Masilko was originally a water reservoir which supplied the industrial objects in Humpolec, Czech Republic and after that it became a fire reservoir but in 1999 the water area was purchased by a private owner and was transformed into a pond.
The new owner created a garden house, with the aid of the OK Plan Architecture studio, at the northern dam of the pond which served as background and seasonal retreat. The house spreads over a surface of 11.7 x 3.54 meters with a height of 5.5 meters.
The entrance level hosts the social area along with a store room and bedroom while the main residential area is above the dam of the pond and extends with a terrace and staircase to connect with the water surface.
The partition walls, floor and roof were designed as wooden sandwich structures so that the pillars and beams were provided with thermally insulated and sheathed plywood on the exterior and interior sides.
