From the architect. Bela Krajina or White Carniola is a small traditional region in southeastern part of Slovenija. It is characterised by low carst hills, beautiful birch forests, vast wineyards and beautiful contryside.

Ground Floor Plan
Ground Floor Plan

There are 4 dominant architectural typologies. So called Uskoški dvor is an arrangement of single storey building sets organised around the common court. Since the client had a relatively large plot and his wish was that the whole building develops in the groundfloor, this typology seemed as a perfect starting point.

The idea to combine traditional with contemporary was also present when searching solutions for overcoming larger spans. The largest span is bridged with a beautiful timber construction, echoing the surounding traditonal constructional principles and marking the entrance area.

The result is a house that combines traditional elements with contemporary building knowledge and lifestyle. Behind the covered entrance and parking area for three cars is an open court. Surrounded with a sleeping area to the north, guest and leisure rooms to the east and an open living area to the west. Further to the west is a long orchard with old authentic trees.

The timber frame structure of the object lies on a simple concrete plinth. And the material on the facades logically coincides with the material of the structure. Therefore the facade in the lower part is plaster, whereas the wall above it is clad with wood.
