BASIS
The investor bought a plot together with an abandoned farm and its three facilities: residential, farming and auxiliary with a basement and a pantry. The position of the facilities is adjusted to the diverse terrain are oriented accordingly. The existing facilities are too old and are to be demolished.
The investor wishes a house that uses and adjusts to the inclination of the terrain.
CONCEPT
Based on the basics we wished to keep the principle placement of the farm on the terrain. The new concept uses the inclination of the terrain and creates the facilities that are burrowed on one side, and laid on the other. The mathematical symbols “and”, “or” represent a tool, which lay the house on the terrain. They also create a cross section that determines the laid and the burrowed space. The shift in the stories creates a jutted roof on one side and keeps the light in on the other.
The mathematical symbols has the function to link the pattern of the before separated facilities of the farm, which also creates new spatial and lighting effects.
The facade follows the pattern of the hayrack, which also undertakes a construction role of the house. “Čop”, as a traditional element, is used as the main element of the roof and is stretched through the whole ridge.
