Family house in Rijeka – Pulac
AUTHOR: Dora Perković
PROJECT: Preliminary and Main design
LOCATION: Pulac, Rijeka
AREA: 430 m2
House is designed to act as an extension of the existing landscape (roof serves as two level terrace). Since it follows the shape of the terrain and descends cascading down it, final facade appearance is reflection of the inside movement direction (direction of the internal staircases). “Gabion wall” (used in design of the upper part of the house) emphasizes symbolism of dry stone walls found on the plot (bearers of the genius loci). Garage is at the level of the road access and is connected to the middle floor and the main house entrance. At the middle floor there is office/gym and guest room with their own balconies. Lowest floor consists of a living room, dining area and kitchen, cinema room, main bedroom with its bathroom and its private covered part of the pool. House is hidden from the road, neighbors, but still completely opened up to the sea and the view.
