In the Krkonoše Mountains, north of Czech Republic settles the small mountain lodge Černá Voda, by ADR just near the Pomezní Boudy border checkpoint.


The original lower ski-lift has been replaced and refitted with a new wooden structure along the confluence of the Kolben and Černá Voda streams, the latter of which the mountain lodge is named after. It was the owner’s preference to have a small structure that would function as short-term accomodation for guests of the nearby Tereza mountain chalet.



The Černá Voda Mountain Lodge features a simple architecture that stands out within its surroundings


Černá Voda Mountain Lodge is a wooden structure measuring approximately 5.3m x 5.6m. This lodge features a hallway, living room with kitchen facilities, bathroom and a toilet. The sleeping space spans across the upper level of a portion of the living room and the vestibule. These areas are accessible via a staircase from the living room. The living room has open ceiling with exposed rafter, while the sleeping spaces are covered with protective netting.


The mountain lodge settles into a steep north-east facing slope of Pomezní hřeben, just next to the stream. The foundations of the structure consists of concrete piers, and the above-ground structure is made of wood. The roof and side façade are made of blackened aluminium sheet metal, while the gable walls are clad in a blackened wood. The Černá Voda Mountain Lodge stands alone on a mountain meadow and is surrounded by grown trees and shrubbery.


The large corner window of the mountain lodge permit a large panoramic view of Malá Úpa river and the surrounding landscape.
