Description by Dekleva Gregorič Arhitekti
The area of Karst was as soon as coated with Oak bushes that Venetians have extensively used for increase the City on water.
They have left the wind to peel off earth revealing limestone grounds. In this panorama the custom of small, compact, stony and virtually windowless homes developed and remained till in the present day.
Following this custom decided the design of small compact stony home equivalent to the wants of the younger household and present technological rules. Redefinition of conventional stony Karst home led to the idea of proto-home as compact, stony, pitched roof quantity for modern countryside dwelling on this area. The home is conceived as monolithic quantity with two inserted picket volumes linked with interim touchdown.
Ground ground operates largely as public or semi-public area with a number of grand panorama views as then again the higher flooring stands very personal with sky views solely. The area is split with two inserted wood volumes which in floor ground include kitchen with eating or rest room and within the higher flooring master suite and youngsters’s room. House in a home idea permit every bed room to carry out as primarily picket pitched home, the place one actually seems like sleeping in his personal (symbolic) home and never a room. The bridge connecting each homes acts as playroom.
The home has tree massive sq. home windows which open views in direction of hilltop church in Italy to the west, forest to the south and entrance platform to the east. The redefinition of conventional stony Karst roof, with its texture, color, materials and its steep inclination is executed as up to date concrete interpretation with intense technological ingenuity. Materially inseparable connection between the facade and the roof is essential allusion to the picture of conventional Karst village.
The design of the home addresses the connection between modern and custom, it opens up the query in regards to the traits of nameless conventional constructed structure from which it originates and concurrently establishes the connection between modern interpretation and historically conditional area of synthesis.
