House above the valley

STUDIO PIKAPLUS d.o.o. / 2021

The single-family ground-floor house rises above the Vipava Valley. The stunning view of the valley starts with Nanos up to Vipavski Križ. It is a simple rectangular house with a massive flat roof, which emphasizes the horizontal line of the building. The house has 116 m2 of living area. The bedroom part of the house is separated from the living area with incorporated furniture. The boundaries between the living and outdoor spaces are blurred, while the night spaces turn to more intimate views of the forest.

House is located in Ajdovščina.
