In the very center of the residential neighborhood Bršljin comes a modern architectural design of triples, in a way that the Slovenian market has not yet seen. The creative interweaving of roof design creates an attractive game of mirror duality, the unfolding of which can be monitored with each visit to the site.
At the entrance from the south, Creative Houses for Creative People offers us a view of a warm two-storey house, similar in shape to the surrounding buildings. As we approach the building, it breaks down into several smaller units, which with their materialization define the homes of three families. It is only when we leave the location and look back that we notice the duality of its form in the image of an upside-down roof.
Creative houses for creative people are intended for young families and everyone who wants to bring freshness, art and comfort into their home and life. Each of the three units has its own private garden and two parking spaces. The ground floor is structurally connected in a classic finish and in its simple whiteness acts as a base for the expression of the concept of the upper floors.
The division between individual homes is defined by the materialization of the façade cladding of the upper floors; decorative brick, wood paneling and ventilated sheet metal facade. With this move, each house also gets its own name;
House O / brick /: 117.6 m2
House L / wood /: 125.8 m2
House P / sheet metal /: 139.5 m2
The layout of the rooms adapts to the real life of families and offers them both pleasant shelters and large common areas for socializing. The ground floors of all units are dedicated to the living room, with the heart of the space being an open kitchen that connects to the living room and dining area. The floor and attic allow a high level of peace and privacy. Bedrooms for parents and children’s rooms are separated by floors, with the bedroom always having its own private access to the terrace.
