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.
