Gorski Kotar House

Set atop a hill in the Croatian countryside, the Gorski Kotar House has a special relationship with its natural landscape. The project was inspired by a single walnut tree, spawning an outdoor terrace and eventually an entire home. Its simple form and pitched roof are clad in Siberian larch, stained with a black wood tar. In contrast to its stark exterior, the inside is bright and open with a palette of white and natural wood. The small floor plan is left undisrupted, with a ground level living room and kitchen that sit underneath a lofted sleeping area. From here, the inside flows out to an outdoor kitchen and terrace, where the elevated plot provides expansive views of the surrounding mountains.
