House Gabrje

3biro, Janez Koželj, Blaž Rupar, Tina Rupar Kobe / 2010

The shape of Gabrje House, its placement and its floor plan depend on each other and match its rural setting. The interior connects with the exterior, the layout responds to the structure, the cross section links with placement of the building, the façade cladding corresponds to the apertures, and the volume of the building matches the plot. The house is closed towards its neighbours in the north and opens towards the valley in the south. The rooms and the outer extensions have similar surfaces that offer a variety of uses. The design of the family home is clear; the front side is open, the back side is closed; the living quarters are in the front, the service spaces occupy the back of the house. The ground floor is reinforced concrete while the upper floor is constructed from prefabricated wood.
