The composition of the House MARLES GEN-2 was devised with the idea of a "concept car for the Frankfurt Fair", therefore a "concept house for Ljubljana Fair DOM" that explores the limits of the use of wooden structures in residential construction. The working name of the studio was Murcielago - connoisseurs of gasoline vapors will know what that is. While communicating with Marles's development department we increasingly became aware that the benefits we took for extreme are in fact completely normal for the manufacturing world of wood. Wood has proven to be a building material easily capable of handling demanding architectural compositions, which brought us to the idea that "conceptual house" can in fact get a real price and go into serial production.
So continued the story of GEN 2 house - a house for two generations. The composition that ensued comprises two residential units: the larger unit is used by the generation that "produces", the smaller is alternatively used by two generations - either by those who embark on their own for the first time or those that enjoy the fruits of autumn life. This way, the house regains importance of the home where generations follow each other. Every generation has its own wing and its own garden. The house can grow or shrink modularly, and adjust to terrain topography.
