Slovene architecture


Lucija Penko, Rok Žnidaršič / 2018

Kambra is a renovated, 400 year-old stone barn with a garden and a pavilion, located in the village Pliskovica on the Karst Plateau in Slovenia. The refurbishment of the old barn carefully retained all valuable existing features, such as the roof structure, the stone and the window frames. Opposite the old house stands a new-built single storey structure, made out of exposed concrete, inside completely white. It defines and forms an enclosed garden with a covered terrace in the ambiance of Mediterranean plants and the old stone house.
