Hiža-a contemporary interpretation of a traditional zagorje cottage in Kumrovec, Croatia by PROARH

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Article source: PROARH

The pre-existing traditional Zagorje cottage is situated on the green slopes near Kumrovec  and was structurally and statically in poor condition. It was renovated taking into consideration the characteristics of local heritage and design. The pre-existing house form is kept, while the porch is substituted with a glass cube. To give the cottage southern exposure, the glass form is slided out of the main house volume, simultaneously forming an entrance area.  Interaction of interior and exterior spaces is enabled by opening of the glass walls. The cottage consists of three floors: the basement, ground floor and 1st floor, which is comprised of the essential living spaces- leisure/dining/cooking on groundfloor and sleeping areas on the 1st floor. Groundfloor spaces are then arranged following a traditional system of organisation that creates a common zone with the ‘hearth’ .

Article source: TACO taller de arquitectura contextual

Pabellón 3E is the result of an architectural intervention of a satellite edification construction of 140 square meters, located inside a residential home from the sixties in one of the first neighborhoods outside of the historic downtown area in the city of Merida, Yucatan, Mexico; such satellite edification, 40 years ago, was part of the neighbor’s property, and the owners acquired it in order to modify it as bedrooms for their large family. Over the years, these rooms became guest-rooms, and given the advanced age of the owners, their difficulty managing stairs and lack of ground floor rooms in the main house, the decision to modify the development was taken in order to create optimal conditions for habitability with minimal financial resources, there for the project does not handle extensions and is strictly defined by the preexisting ones.
