Compact Karst house is a project completed in 2014 by Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti covers an area of 92 m2 and is located in Vrhovlje, Slovenia.
The design of a small compact stony house corresponds to the needs of the young family and simultaneously follows current technological principles and the tradition of small, compact, stony and almost windowless houses. The proto-house concept gains clarity in monolithic mono-material volume, with two inserted wooden proto-houses connected with the shared open gallery. The project opens up the question about the characteristics of the anonymous traditionally built architecture, from which it originates, and simultaneously establishes the relationship between contemporary interpretation and the traditionally conditional domain of synthesis.
