This contemporary house with Alpine village characteristics was built by Skupaj Arhitekti in Stara Fužina, an Alpine Village in Triglav National Park, Slovenia. Before the renovation, the house was a mechanic’s workshop. Architects maintained the original form of the traditional Alpine houses but also added some new elements such as fibre-cement tiles on roof and galvanised metal accents that were applied on wooden window shutters and frames. Some elements of the design had to be approved by the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia. That included rotating the house 90 degrees away from the former building and adding the pitched roof. The house stands on a locally sourced stone foundation and the structure is made from oiled native larch. Inside, natural wood elements and white walls dominate the whole place. On the ground floor, there’s an open-plan living space. The first floor houses a two bedrooms and a bathroom. A separate studio apartment for rent is located on the western side of the ground floor.
