Haus D

0

Faced with the constraints of a tight plot, the design team of Matija Bevk, Vasa J. Perović and Uršula Oitzl decided to excavate, with a deep basement set behind the two-storey street façade. Here the garden and house has been skilfully blended together, with a series of atriums and voids arranged around the slender basement pool. The architects describe this floor as an ‘introverted world secluded from its surroundings’; from the basement office, looking back through the sunken courtyard across the pool there’s a serene atmosphere that seems impossibly at odds with the suburban surroundings.
