Text description provided by the architects. The hut is situated in a small Alpine village, part of Triglav national park with very strict rules of construction and architectural design. The client bought the site together with existing construction permit for the generic project. Demand was not to change construction permit but change the elements of the house to suit his family, sustainable factor and open the windows toward the views.

Interior organisation suits the needs of the family and is very rational. Central staircase rotates around the fireplace that heats both floors. There are 3 bedrooms and bath with sauna on top floor with minimal corridor. Ground floor is one space room with kitchen; dinning and living, storage is under the staircase. The level is partly lower so window shelves act as sofa with views toward the mountains.

Large corner window was positioned toward the sun therefore in winter-sunny days no heating is needed. Extra thermal isolation is put between the wooden cladding - both in exterior and interior, black foil that is put behind the wood absorbs the heat of the sun and transforms it onto the walls. Upper floor is pushed over the ground floor and acts as sun protector in summer when sun is higher. Rain water is collected from the roof and transported through vertical pipes that are covered with wooden masks.
