Residential Architecture: Country House by DVA ARHITEKTA: “..The approach of the proposal was to develop a residential complex in strong connection to the context..the site stretches over 35 000 square meters of wild landscape, bounded by strong stone walls..Architectural language is pure and elementar, adjusted to the hand of local builders. Concrete construction is cladded in stone from the local quarry. Stone frames around the openings in facade, also traditional elements, are here made in plaster and emphasized to achieve the playfulness of basic stone element.. Connections between units are paved in same local stone. Houses are heated by heat pumps using air and very well isolated which makes them low energy..This project is trying to set a positive example to build in remote areas using what nature has given us and respecting local conditions..”  Interesting fenestration, views, contextual sensibility; stone love..
