Text description provided by the architects. This vacation house is located on a slope surrounded by olive groves, with the equisite view at the Brački kanal and the city of Split.  The slope’s orientation to the north resulted in the spatial disposition and the two-sided orientation of all the living spaces and the required use of pitched roofs initiated the two-part division with the monopitched roofs and the flat roof in-between.

The program required that the ground floor is used for the rest and other daily activities, while the first floor consists of four suites with separate bathrooms and terraces. The house consists od two design elements: the stone plinth connected to the surrounding terrain and the white volume that levitates above the living room which completely opens itself to the exterior with the glass curtains on the both sides.

Ground Floor Plan

In the middle of the living area is a dining zone which opens both to the north and south terrace, and functions as the central axis of the house. It ends at the pool on the north side, and the jacuzzi bath integrated in the south end of the terrace.

The transparency of the ground floor enables the integration of both the interior and the exterior including the terraces and the pool as an extended zone of the living room.
