House in Vipava Valley
This modern home is located between typical single-dwelling houses from the 1970s and 1980s, which are mostly of two displaced volumes, all covered with gabled roofs. Rather than mimicking the existing surroundings, the new construction is slightly separated from them, without standing out. In fact, it is almost imperceptible. The flat roof makes it lower and does not obscure the neighbours’ view. For the same reason, the upper floor has been shifted to the western part of the building, while the terrace is on the eastern side.
To guarantee the durability of this home, selected natural materials were used. The entrance and west facade are clad in local stone, while the interior is dominated by wood combined with stone.
