House on the Island Murter

Dva Arhitekta d.o.o. as Architects

House site found in a tipical mediterranean- dalmatian situation; on one side, a multi-apartment house made for the market, on the other side a pseudotraditional luxury poolside villa. Long and narrow site determines the form of the house, and the client's love for exotic plants offers inspiration on how to solve the neighbours' contact zone and create a private world, framed by two frames.

First and upper one frames the loggia, a space for the daily activities, which comprises kitchen, dining and lounge, and overlooks the swimming pool. The lower frame outlines the view towards the longitudinal garden, a space of peacefulness and privacy. Architecture frames the gardens and the pool, distancing itself from non-inspiring surrounding.

Choice of horticulture strongly defines this project, and architecture does not try to compete. The form of the house is elementar.

Such an approach is present in the choice of materials, floor and walls being in similar textures. It is in mediterranean culture to pave the floors in terazzo, so the intent was to use the similar material on the facade walls, underlining pureness and simplicity of the concept.
