Pavilion in a hayrack

BAUMIT as Manufacturers

Until recently, the housing of active people working in the city has been closely tied to urban areas. Nowadays, these living environments are moving to the outskirts of cities –  the former countryside. The countryside is becoming a dispersed micro-urban system which offers quality, economic and sustainable living.

The framework of the barn preserves its structural and expressive elements down to the last detail. It is situated with an adjusted orientation on a half semi-basement base and its terraces and supporting walls softly interweave into the landscape of the south slope of the meadow. The new house is a skilful and completely hidden modern architectural implant of a "pavilion in a hayrack". The expression of landscape, which can be experienced through membranes in all directions and through the framework of the vernacular heritage, awakens the consciousness of the inner spirit between the outer and inner, the safe and exposed. From the outside, the building respectfully meets all the essential legalities of the vernacular architecture of Slovenian countryside architecture. From the inside, the new house displays a modern living environment.  A house connects the cultural landscape to the environment, the building heritage to the culture of modern living.
