Architects: Bevk Perović Arhitekti
Built during 2007-2008, the house completed by Bevk Perovic Arhitekti is situated in Ljubljana, Slovenia. A couple without children wanted a house with one living room, one bedroom and a gymnasium. But, despite the simplicity of the brief, the task was complex – there was too much programme demanded for a relatively small plot of land. A large part of the house is therefore hidden in the ground forming an introvert world secluded from the surroundings. The house includes an underground gymnasium including a sauna, swimming pool and music room, lit by three atria. The terraces on the ground and first floors are equal in size to the rooms from which they extend.
