DI HOUSE in Pula, Croatia by Ekokoncept d.o.o.

This low-energy Mediterranean beauty is a family residence on the outskirts of Pula. The beautiful green surroundings and slightly elevated plot serve as a fantastic curtain for the modern cube the architect Tomaž Noč designed for the family. The plot was originally fenced with an old stone wall which was carefully disassembled in the beginning of the construction. The stones were then reassembled into a higher wall which serves as the backbone of the building, beginning at the pool area outside and then penetrating into the house acting as the support wall for the stairs in the living room.
The downstairs of the residence is created as an open space area; kitchen and living room connected, and surrounded by breathtaking views trough the glazed walls facing south and west. The overhang above the generously glazed downstairs’ facade prevents the house to overheat during the summers and allows enough sun in the winter to create a comfortable, bright atmosphere, additionally heated with a modern fireplace in the living room.
The upper floor of the house is a sleeping area, divided into a master bedroom (with master bathroom and walk in closet) and two rooms for the children, with a large separate bathroom. The master bedroom opens to a big terrace which daily rewards the owners with a gorgeous sea view.
