The house is situated close to the well known vacationer resort Divčibare, on the incline of Mount Maljen in western Serbia. In spite of the fact that the plot has been invaded with little pine trees, regardless it bears the first character of the open field. To minimize unsettling influence to the site and as a kind of perspective to the encompassing uneven territory, the house is incorporated with the slope.
Composed by joining the two primary solid volumes, light and dim. These structures converge with the indigenous habitat of low pine vegetation and steep rough territory. On the south side, the white segment of the house join with the outside through an amazing picture window, which manages the move from the counterfeit to the normal.
This current side’s outside is done with white fired tiles, which stresses its structure and offers reference to the inside capacity of joined kitchen, feasting and living territory. The white cladding makes this volume conceptual and inverse to the rustic environment.
The dark portion of the house draws motivation from unique mountain homes. The patio is limited on one side by the white volume, making a shielded open air space. Up on the first floor is the open room region giving complete protection from different spaces. The structure is accentuated through the utilization of regular materials, for example, the customary timber shingle cladding.
Through the duality of the house, with two primary volumes; the goal was to combine the conventional and the contemporary to make a special stylish and a structure thoughtful to its environment.
The procedure of development was trying because of the distance of the site and the generally low spending plan. The material choice was made taking into account an energy about economy, strength and to compliment the structure. Sourcing timber from nearby woodlands and using other neighborhood materials was an absolute necessity.
