Paradis, Croatia | 2023
The original farmhouse was actually two separate dwellings occupied by different family members. The project is set in a quiet and beautiful landscape high on a hill overlooking a tree-filled valley to the west. The project's objective was to maintain the original charm while adding a significant extension to provide a modern Croatian villa. The small stone outhouse was also extended and refurbished into a guest house and a pool was built between the two buildings to complete the complex.
The elevated patio and balconies are all positioned to capture the evening sun and the beautiful vistas of the countryside. The focus of this house is the outdoor spaces for eating, leisure, and relaxing. Each bedroom has an en-suite to allow the house to be used by either a family or a group of friends.
