The Stone House in a karst environment gives space to a conscious experience and self-reflection. In this kind of architecture, one can through self-isolation offer an inner space that leads to the process of self-observation and self-inquiry.
With the revitalization of the stone ruin, the new house became an integral part of the stone wall that runs along the ridge of the hill.
Different sizes and positions of the windows indicate the diversity of the atmospheres of the interior spaces.
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 creates a waterfall, through which valuable karst water collects in the reservoir.
The outdoor toilet, which grows next to the house, with its zenith light offers an intimate 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 gives you shelter, great house changes you.
