Modern cottage in Slovenia. Location of the site in a picturesque pine forest set the main motive for the development of the architectural image.
Horizontal dominant prevails in the image of the building; it visually gives the house a certain static form. This dominant is represented by a large canopy on the upper level and a mirrored base, flowing into a spacious terrace on the lower level. The rhythm of the windows and wooden rails, as well as the vertical lines of pines in the background play the role of contrasting elements.
The main wish of the owners was to use natural materials. Taking this into account wood and a rough stone were chosen. Dark colors give the cottage a certain austerity. However, in the evening, warm light pouring through large vertical windows together with street lighting of the same shade fills the house with a cozy atmosphere and shows it from a completely different angle.
