Small intervention-big difference
The villa is located in a beautiful natural alpine resort by the lake Bohinjsko jezero in Slovenia, 200 meters distance form the town centre Bohinj. It is situated in the open space - in the heart of nature, on the edge of the “Triglav National Park”. The valley of Bohinj is indirectly souranded by the magnificant Julian Alps, where the view is the point of contact for the interior design of the house: spaces become halls with screens, showing the entire area of the souranding.
The house dates back into the 1930s, meaning it has been alive for nearly 85 years. It is most significant for its outlook - a very unusual one for this region. By introducing some local tones, material, and motives, we are trying to rub out the boundary of discord and balance the spatial story of entirety.Those principles serve as the basis for our “wooden ground floor” concept. On the outside, the concept seems like an addition to the already existent edifice, while the interior is merged into a fluid, homogenously designed space. Through nostalgia over local architectural highlights such as “kozolec”- a type of hayrack and shepherds’ cottages, we are trying to found a new façade concept. We modify the traditional motif into a pattern of “local lace” that, through its transparency, enables maximum contact between the exterior and the interior. This way we develop a unique entity within the local tones and use it as the leading element of our interior design. The wooden intervention becomes a link in the common story.
