The investors wanted a simple, Scandinavian-like architecture. They talked about a typical Slovenian balcony (called “gank”), open space and light in the house. It should be 250 m2 in size; the basement would be designed for hanging out, the ground floor for living and the attic for the children. A jutting roof to shelter the car should also be an element of the house.
The location is in a neighbourhood of newly built individual houses that have their plans based on an existing building plan; consequently the size of the floor plan is limited to 10 m x 10 m2 with possible deviations. The inclination of the roof is parallel with the slope of the terrain and as such should be between 25˚and 35˚angle. The plot is located in woodsy area outside the city of Celje. Therefore, the old typical house with its “gank” served as an inspiration for the house design. The “gank” is no longer just a functional and aesthetical element of the house, but the starting point of the process for spatial planning. The connections of different levels in the house are upgraded with the mixing of space and form.
