“The Stone House, situated in a karst environment, gives space to a conscious experience and self-reflection. This unique architecture allows for self-isolation, creating a space for inner contemplation that leads to the process of self-observation and self-inquiry.
The revitalization of the stone ruin transformed it into an integral part of the stone wall that runs along the ridge of the hill, seamlessly blending the new house with its surroundings.
The diversity of atmospheres within the interior spaces is reflected by the various sizes and positions of the windows.
At the entrance, in a partially enclosed courtyard, a monolithic stone is placed under a linden tree, which under a deep shade creates a space of a seated contemplative surface.
The stone gutter forms a waterfall that collects valuable karst water in the reservoir below.
Positioned adjacent to the house, with its zenith light, the outside toilet offers an intimate secluded indoor atmosphere.
The space on the upper floor sums up the essence of the Stone House – the retreat itself. The low window invites the user to sit on the floor and gaze at the wast view of the entire valley.
The art of living is experienced when we give things our full attention.
Good house provides shelter, great house transforms you.
