The experience of retreat in the Forest House has helped me to elucidate common architectural qualities that trigger or stimulate deeper, sensorial experiences. These are: sensuality, retreat, nature, construction, natural materials, spatial openness, shape, shadow, intimacy, silence, and meeting of the opposites. I have combined all these findings in the architectural renovation of the Stone House in the Slovenian Istria.
