CONCEPT With this project, located on Zlatibor, a mountain in the heart of Serbia and also a developing modern resort, we tried to reconcile rich heritage with modern design but also with heavy constraints laid by the investor. The design intent was to create a building without external walls in reference to traditional mountain home typology of the region whereby the dominant portion of the building’s envelope belongs to the roof rather than the walls. Two possible solutions emerged to determine the optimal envelope which consists solely of the roof surface with the aperture in the form of the glass facade protected with timber louvres. The design of the second proposal incorporates elements of traditional mountain house, particularly with the roof shape, perhaps less than the first proposal but introduces more floor surface.
