This residence is located on a flat site situated within a dense urban environment. The site borders with residential streets on its two sides. The U-shaped form of the house creates intimate green zones of gardens and terraces, secluded from the street views. Operable glass panels open the house to the exterior, merging the interior and the outdoors, and making the terraces become an extended part of the house.
The ground floor is divided into two wings with spaces that open to the covered terraces, which continue into a garden. The large living room can be used as one space, or divided with sliding panels into several separate rooms. A two story-high entry, with wooden staircase that leads into the basement and to the first floor, enables views onto the garden and all spaces in the house.
The design of the house follows its functional distribution: the facade of the ground floor (living area) is colour coated, and the first floor (private area) is covered in wooden panels. The house is covered with two-sided sloped roof.Location: 10000 Zagreb, Croatia Architect: DAR612 Authors: Andrea Donatović Poljičak, d.i.a., Morana Lepur Donatović. d.i.a., Jakov Poljičak, d.i.a., Lovro Donatović, d.i.a.
