From the architect. The houses on Perovo stand on an exposed location with an exceptional view of the Kamniško-Savinjske Alps in the background. However the view is not the only characteristic of this location, as the houses represent a dominant feature of the valley when viewed from below. Thus the architectural task at hand brings at least two important challenges. First, it is necessary to design and create a quality living environment for the future residents, and second, the project provides an opportunity to redefine the look of the settlement on Perovo which has a rather heterogeneous and inharmonious layout with its scattered individual houses.

Relatively high volumes are structured with a simple architectural approach: the ground floor is designed to act as a »pedestal« of the house, supporting two smaller volumes with steep skillion roofs. Therefore the smaller upper volumes, with continuous wooden facade cladding, contribute an important effect to the looks and the ambience of the settlement as a whole.

Situation

The existing building plan proposed two rows of parcels with twin housing units. The decision to change the bottom row into a lower-density housing with individual houses opened up the view on the Kamniško-Savinjske Alps for the upper row as well.

Turn-around

With relatively dense housing, it is important to maintain a basic level of privacy of the gardens. The wooden garden terraces linked to the living rooms are orientated so that the residents of the twin housing units do not disturb each other while spending their afternoons outside.

Floor Plans

Flexibility is an important property of the houses and an integral part of the structural concept. All of the load-bearing walls are located on the perimeter, which enables custom layouts of the rooms inside, both on the ground floor and on the second floor.

Order the plans correctly, please. It's impossible to understand the project viewing the plans in that order. Archdaily should care more the presentation.

dear eric, i could not agree more. the siteplaning is a disaster. at the begining of this invited competition we asked ourselves if we can participate within the prescribed rules of this deadly urban planing. and then anyway we decided to try out what best could be done within these rules. what you see is the result. in the future we tend to do competitions where urban planing is part of the brief and not the opposite. best tina

nice principle for small housing!...

Eric Davis · September 28, 2011

A grouping of very elegant, simple homes, in a site plan and general situation that have been a dreadfully bad idea here in America and is just as dreadfully bad in Slovenia.

"However the view is not the only characteristic of this location, as the houses represent a dominant feature of the valley when viewed from below." Ouch. I think this was meant as a compliment to the designers but it illustrates the cold fact that the first decision in architecture is whether or not to build at all.

These type of cookie-cutter developments, on curving roads to nowhere, have blighted the American landscape. The fact that these boxes are nicer doesn't excuse the dreadful site planning. What's remarkable is how oblivious the designers, who no doubt wrote the text, are to history:

"...the project provides an opportunity to redefine the look of the settlement on Perovo which has a rather heterogeneous and inharmonious layout with its scattered individual houses." Really? The same goal of "inflicting harmony" has been a telltale trait of Fascist urban planning since Ludwig Hilbesheimer and his early patrons. American started realizing this particular mistake when Venturi wrote of the importance of "messy vitality."

Beautiful homes - seriously - but awful site planning.
