Text description provided by the architects. The project was a reconstruction of the old building which was  a part of a bigger meat  processing  complex  near  the  city  of  Zenica  in  Bosnia.  The  old  building  was almost a ruin, distanced from the rest of the facilities, surrounded by tall pines. Since the client did not need more space, we have decided to adapt and reconstruct the existing building with minimal additions.

Great position of the building on the slope it is situated on, done by some unknowncraftsman in the past, together with untouched trees and meadow behind the object was enough to convince the clients to accept our suggestion.

Examination  of  existing  roof  truss  showed  that  some  of  the  elements  were  still healthy and could be reused. Thus, the basic volume with the gable roof has been preserved  and  wrapped  in  a  watertight  “mantle”,  materialized  in  form  of  profile sheets.

The   mantle   extends   and   covers   up   the   additional   sanitary   facilities, kitchenette and the porch, preserving the existing arc wall of the entrance stairs. Irregular  openings  in  the  profile  sheet   façade  are  opening  the  view  on  the surrounding meadow and at the same time illuminating it at night.

Wood  has been  used  as  paneling  and  vertical  bearing  and  non-bearing elements which correlate with the surrounding pine trees.
