House “V” was designed in order to satisfy the needs of a family. Applying communication between the common and individual rooms, the facilities and functions of the space have been connected into a single unit that creates a comfortable living area for a family.

The house is situated beneath Zagreb mountain Medvednica, on a relatively mild hill that stretches from south to east. The formed building direction and the quality of the landscape have directly influenced the position of the house.

The house is closed on the north side along the street and opens up into a large private garden thus creating a sense of intimacy for family life. The ground floor is intended for the common activities of the inhabitants, with a gradual staircase connecting the serene living area to private rooms on the first floor. Exits to the outdoor landscape are possible from the pool on the southern side, the porch area on the southeastern side, along the glass front of the living room and from the commercial part on northeast side. The open ground floor is directed towards the outside area while the partly enclosed first floor with a terrace only symbolically plays with the relationship of the intimate and transparent.

The longitudinal volume that breaks amply is included in the dynamic by vertical openings on both floors on the western façade. With its shape and careful fit into the surrounding landscape, House “V” stands out distinctly from the buildings around it.

    Have looked up this site on internet by accident. I am quite impressed! As an Interior Designer in Australia, I was surprised by the talent!! I have been to Dalmatia & surrounding coastline and thought no more, however, will be in Zagreb for New Year & would love the opportunity to meet your talented people if that was a possibility. Maybe we could exchange ideas? Regards from MIRA HOWELL,MDIA

    I�m impressed, I need to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that�s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you have got hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something referring to this.

    The next time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to learn, however I actually thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might repair in case you werent too busy searching for attention.
