* Residential Architecture: Podfuscak Residence by Dva Arhitekta

Residential Architecture: Podfuscak Residence by Dva Arhitekta: “..The main requirement was to hide away from neigbours and open views and orientation to the south and greenery. By using waste brick as a facade cladding the house fits in the old and uncompleted built area of the surrounding..Big openings are oriented to the green areas as well as pulled-in parts of the main house volume wich garantee intimacy. North facade is very closed to the street view, while other three sides of a house volume are pulled into themselves..pulled-in space defines atrium connected to the most vital part of the house – kitchen, dining and living. Atrium brings in nature as well as daylight into the house providing intimacy and hiding views from the neigbours. Third and the biggest one which at the same time connects and separates living and dining spaces is placed diagonally in the direction of the best view. Besides by big windows on facade, the house is heated using geothermal resources through the walls and floors which makes it low energy house..”  Abundant glazing, natural light, views, privacy, geothermal energy, recycled brick..

    I could say that DVA are my new favorite architects. The level of complexity that they achieve in this house and the economy that they achieve it In the best Miesien tradition is truly commendable. Here is proof that less is never a bore when done right.
