House R / Bevk Perović arhitekti

first_img Projects Year:  Photographs:  Miran KambičText description provided by the architects. House R is a weekend house, located in the idyllic Alpine area near the picturesque Bohinj lake.It stands in the protected conservation area, on the spot where an old house used to be, and – due to regulations-it strictly follows the contours of the preceding structure.This area around lake Bohinj is full of holiday homes dating back to the seventies, mostly designed as literal ‘copies’ of typical Slovenian Alpine architecture – steep pitched roofs and dark wooden cladding.

Its elevation comprises of series of larch-wood panels, all done in pre-patinated silver gray stain that slide to ‘reveal’ the house as it becomes occupied on weekends or during holiday season.

At first sight a ‘prototypical’ house-shape gets animated, making the structure simultaneously traditional and contemporary. Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe construction of the house is in concrete which is then clad in the homogenous vertical-slatted wooden facade consisting out of large size fixed and sliding panels that cover all openings. Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe larch wood of the façade is pre-patinated (weathered) in silver gray stain, giving it an appearance of ‘standing there forever’, while the windows retain the natural warm colour of larchwood, serving as ‘frames’ for the landscape when looking out from the house. Save this picture!© Miran KambičUnder the slatted wooden ‘coating’ is a contemporary, ascetic interior with open-plan living / dining room area opening towards surrounding landscape via a large covered terrace in hand-polished terazzo. The steep stairs, leading to the cellar area with utility space and sauna, and to the first ¸¸floor attic containing bedrooms, traverse and separate living from dining area on the ground floor.The windows in the bedroom areas, with their seemingly random placing are in fact ‘frames’, capturing different views – therefore the inhabitants can see their garden or the access path to the house, as well as the sky, directly from their beds. Save this picture!PlanThe house communicates with the surrounding nature in many, not immediately visible ways – it also, due to its temporary use as weekend retreat, has the ability to be completely closed-off from it when needed. Save this picture!PlanIn such a way, it succesfully merges the ideas of traditional buildings of the area with contemporary needs and habits.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSugar Hill Housing / David AdjayeArticles40 Housing Units / LAN ArchitectureArticles Share Slovenia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Architects: Bevk Perović arhitekti Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” “COPY”center_img 2008 House R / Bevk Perović arhitektiSave this projectSaveHouse R / Bevk Perović arhitekti ArchDaily Photographs House R / Bevk Perović arhitekti CopyHouses•Slovenia Save this picture!© Miran Kambič+ 11 Share CopyAbout this officeBevk Perović arhitektiOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesSloveniaPublished on October 06, 2010Cite: “House R / Bevk Perović arhitekti” 06 Oct 2010.
