Reconstruction of homestead Vrlovčnik

Medprostor / 2015

The old mountain farm at Matkov kot in the Alps consisted of a farmers’ home, a barn and a smithy. The former two were in a very bad shape and unsuitable for living. The whole farm was renovated in order to convert it into a holiday home, using the quality characteristics of the original building and its pristine natural surroundings.
