Set between a 16th-century church and a wooden barn in the Slovenian town of Logatec, the Chimney House takes inspiration from both of its neighbors. The linear form and oiled larch boards that make the exterior facade replicate the dark weathered timber of the adjacent barn, while the unique pitch of the roof is reminiscent of the nearby chapel. At the center of the home, a wood-burning stove dominates the interior — giving the home its namesake — and also separating the common and private areas. Oiled oak floors and walls lead up to a board formed concrete ceiling connected by a glazed gap, exposing the entire interior to natural light.
