This project was commissioned to us as a study by a Russian entrepreneur who worked in several countries but liked to relax in on the Adriatic see. Because of his good relationship with Austrians he decided to stay and now he is located in Vienna. Beneath his economic success, he is a man with many interests, supporter of the fine arts, especially classical music and contemporary architecture, very athletic, and very interested in technical matters. But of course the most important part of his life is his family, so he tries to spend as much time as possible with his wife and his two children. Because of his interest in architecture he came across to some of our designs in magazines and internet. He was very interested in the project we did for the Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation in Mannta, Finlanand he contacted us with the purpose of developing something on the same architectural language. He was right away impressed with the way we merge conceptual ideas into an architectural design. After numerous talks about architectural theories and the exchange of several ideas and opinions, we were offered to create a study for a private mansion for him and his family.

Bale (Valle in Italian) is a small village in Istria peninsula, Croatia with mostly agricultural population of 1000 people. The project for the new sports hall has been faced with the rich historical, cultural and social Mediterranean context. Therefore any new architectural interpolation had to have a respectful approach to the environment. The solution has been found in interpreting the traditional ways of building by new technologies.

This vacation house is located on a slope surrounded by olive groves, with the equisite view at the Brački kanal and the city of Split. The slope’s orientation to the north resulted in the spatial disposition and the two-sided orientation of all the living spaces and the required use of pitched roofs initiated the two-part division with the monopitched roofs and the flat roof in-between.

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’ .

Adriatic is a unique hotel with art providing an unrepeatable ambient in which fantasy and reality interact through artistic interventions and everyday objects. The existing building situated on an attractive site next to the sea was constructed in 1913 as one of the first hotels in the region and is nowadays the only one situated in the urban structure of the city of Rovinj.

The assignment was to envision a house for a temporary family retreat for an owner of a cosmetics company, that would use the site to farm and cultivate olives for the needs of the company. The architect encountered the problems that come with a site without infrastructure while at the same time satisfying the needs of the user – temporary habitation and olive farming care.

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.

House „O“ is situated on Silba island in Croatia. It replaced the original modest single-family house surrounded with thick vegetation. The house perfectly meets the requirements of its owners who intend to enjoy its cool interior and its sheltered courtyard. Areas of the house used by day and those used by night are placed on different floors and differ in character. All details of the house have been designed and selected by the architects so as to meet the needs and wishes of its occupants. The house is designed in accordance with the surrounding typology in an ambience dominated by Mediterranean light.

The opening of the Principia Archaeological Park in Rijeka, in February 2014, enriched the topography of ancient sites on the Adriatic’s eastern shore, adding a monumental locus, unique in the type and the shaping level of presentation. As for the type, the Principia was an architectural and town-planning element of castrum, a Roman military encampment or town, one of the many scattered along the boundaries of the Roman Empire (limites). In Dalmatia, only fragments of no more than two castra, those of Burnum and Tilirum, have been preserved, not the entire complex as is the case with Tarsatica. As for the shaping level of presentation, the intervention is a result of a public competition and a creative authorial concept, which was meticulously elaborated, and implemented in a controlled fashion.
