House V2 is located in Dubrovnik, in the urbanized area of Lozice determined by steep topography made up of retaining walls. Stone walls and altitude differences were used as the basis for laying new topographic layers. A gently undulating roof plate follows the internal structure of the building and defines the body of the house which is incorporated into the landscape by its geometry. The simple forms with their materials and white stone facades are in accordance but also in contrast to the drywall.
The design concept was to create a house open to nature but sufficiently protected against the climate. A quality view is utilized with large windows on the facades.
The house is developed in levels - the entrance is on the top floor, parking area next to the street, other activities are organized in split-levels: bedrooms with bathrooms, parents' bedroom with a dressing room and a bathroom, living and dining area, kitchen, service spaces, lounge and space for children to play.
Living and dining rooms have a direct connection with a partially covered terrace with an outdoor pool. The landscape is also designed in several levels connected by stairs that go down to the sea.
The facade and the roof are clad in white stone plates; large windows are partially recessed into the volume and open the house towards the sea ensuring a pleasant shade in the interior. Terraces are paved with stone and teak planks and all surfaces are planted with indigenous plants and executed in materials adapted to the area and climate.
