This house is part of a small village, situated just a few kilometers from Izola and Portoroz. Thanks to the dry-stone walls, the vines and the olive trees, the landscape surrounding the house is very picturesque and has a characteristic Istrian look, despite the vicinity of both towns.
The challenge was to create a modern interior that would suit the urban lifestyle of the owner, while maintaining some of the characteristic rural feeling. Since this was a renovation of an existing house, we could only operate with the materials selection and modify the floor plan.
The choice to divide the living room from the kitchen by wall fractions was both structural and aesthetic. It enabled us to maintain some of the pre-existing bearing walls and gave the living area the feeling we were aiming for.
The surrounding nature was brought indoors using big windows, domestic plants and wooden furniture.
