K01 is set in Kosljun, an area of south-west end of the island of Pag, dominated by seaside villas hidden within the over two hundred years old pine woodland, dramatically sloping towards the Adriatic Sea. The concept of the house resulted in a composition of only two elements: a solid stone walling and glass surfaces conveying the transparencies between the outside and inside.
In contrast to the surrounding country style villas this residence is uncompromisingly modern. Addressing the brief for a larger then average family house we utilized all clients demands in two zones. The main house is arranged with a top floor lounge, kitchen, dinning with a sun terrace ending with a full width swimming pool, glazed fronted to fully express the sea horizon. Direct access is via the bridge from the top level street and car port. The lower levels are designated to three bedrooms. Under the carport are two quest studios with a central spa.
The main house nevertheless conceals its main function partly because of the way it is embedded in the slope and partly because of the cantilevered front swimming pool, notched under to bring the light to the floor level below. The entire arrangement creates a series of private, semi-private, open and close spaces. The construction materials emphasize the simplicity of the arrangement, detailed with the utmost restrain.Location: Island Pag, Croatia
