The inscribed houses, with their small boundaries, are thought and built as a microcosm. The term inscribed, borrowed from geometry, induced us to find new qualities.

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.
