FAMILY HOUSE R

INVESTOR
private

LOCATION
Sveta Nedelja

YEAR
2017

FLOOR AREA
300.00 m2

Family House R is located on high grounds above the Sveta Nedelja centre. Its open-floor plan and large glass walls allow for magnificent views over the surrounding countryside and Zagreb in the distance. The home is stratified into three levels. The garage and the utility area are in the basement while the entrance is on the ground floor. Furthermore, the ground floor accommodates the integrated area of the kitchen, dining room and living room as well as the master bedroom with a bathroom. The first floor is comprised of two children’s rooms with a bathroom, and a study with the library area stretching along the gallery surrounding the double-height dining room. All three levels are interconnected by internal straight stairs. The interior design of the house is thoughtful and tailored to accommodate the needs of a family of four. To strengthen the cohesion with the surrounding landscape, there is a terrace stretching along the east and south facades that is accessed through large glass openings providing a seamless transition from the interior to the exterior.

The exterior design features simple, geometric shapes and angular lines throughout the space, as well as wood cladding in natural colour reflecting a modern and contemporary architectural approach. The restrained, geometric volume is broken by forming a gap, a “bite” in the open entrance porch and by the horizontal overhang spreading along the south and east façades of the ground floor. The additional interplay of the empty and the full has been emphasized by using dark grey colour for the recessed parts of the façade, windows, glass walls and the overhang so as to stress the absence of volume. In that manner, a recognizable structure has been created the design, colour and texture of which make it stand out among the neighbouring buildings while enabling it, at the same time, to blend into the surrounding landscape and provide a healthy living environment.
