BASIS
The investor is the owner of two existing houses on the plot. They are located in the town of Ljubno ob Savinji, a part of the cultural heritage of Slovenia and as such protected from any new construction, while reconstructions are allowed to a certain extent.

The living area starts on the upper level and ends in the attic. The living quarters wind as meanders past the islands and form theme bays.
