Spacious Single-Family Home In Slovenia Built On A Compact 33 Square Meter Footprint
Rising north-west of Ljubljana, in Škofja Loka, this single family house represents creativity under pressure. Three stories high, the cutting edge single-family house showcases a smart floor-plan spreading over a compact 33 square meters footprint on an inclined site and reaching up to find more space. Imagined by 3biro Architects for a youthful family with small youngsters, the comfortable home has a large open twofold tallness living area downstairs and a connected kitchen.
Photographed by Miran Kambi?, the single-family house shelters the working area on the lowest floor, where the father has his office space. This space is also where children hang out after school. It connects to the outdoors where the large overhang allows kids to play outside regardless of weather conditions and the dad can keep an eye on them. The highest floor was reserved for private areas, extending the awareness of the outdoors in close proximity and inviting the family outside. Using reinforced concrete to shape the basement and a combination of timber frames and cross-laminated timber to design the upper floors, architects dressed the home with a protective corrugated fiber-cement sheets.
The overall appeal reinforces a warm, family atmosphere while the home prides itself with a timber exterior that embeds it into the surroundings. How do you find it?
