APARTMENTS IN MEDVODE

area: 5.300 m2
type: housing
status: concept
year of project: 2011

 
 
 

Medvode is a satellite town of the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. Vicinity of the capital is attractive for the housing developments, so the investor asked us to prepare a study of a plot with a complex geometry both in floor plan as in relief of the terrain. On site there is an existing office building that needs to be renovated, converted to housing programme and incorporated into the new complex. Our answer is a dynamic composition of two square housing blocks that form a a piazzetta at the lower plateau and establish nice green areas on the upper plateau. The shape of new buildings is defined by the declination of the corners on the top floor, thus responding to the nearby buildings with prevalent sloped roofs. At the same time, sloped corners bring some tectonic feel into the composition, giving this small project a little more weight.
