3LHD - House V in Zagreb, Croatia Print
Wednesday, 11 June 2008 03:55


A very interesting interior where the combination of light, colors and textures contribute in filling the space and bringing it to life. The furniture with its shape and layout complements the architecture and reinforces its concept.

House “V” was designed in order to satisfy the needs of a family. Applying communication between the common and individual rooms, the facilities and functions of the space have been connected into a single unit that creates a comfortable living area for a family.




The house is situated beneath Zagreb mountain Medvednica, on a relatively mild hill that stretches from south to east. The formed building direction and the quality of the landscape have directly influenced the position of the house.

The house is closed on the north side along the street and opens up into a large private garden thus creating a sense of intimacy for family life.

Exits to the outdoor landscape are possible from the pool on the southern side, the porch area on the southeastern side, along the glass front of the living room and from the commercial part on northeast side.


The open ground floor is directed towards the outside area while the partly enclosed first floor with a terrace only symbolically plays with the relationship of the intimate and transparent.

The longitudinal volume that breaks amply is included in the dynamic by vertical openings on both floors on the western façade. With its shape and careful fit into the surrounding landscape, House “V” stands out distinctly from the buildings around it.
