House of memories, Ptuj

A home in grandparents’ house is priceless in its heart. There is not much left from the original house, its spirit, however, is still present. Perhaps this is so due to thick walls and a bread stove. Spaces are small, the light scarce. We miss the common living space and greater connectivity of individual spaces. How to make a home where the family would be as close as it used to be in the past?
Is it a large window that makes home spacious? Is it wood giving warmth? Is it natural stone which adds to the value? Is it brass reflecting the time? Probably it is all the details we can see when observing the ambient. Yes, it may be the very details which – while telling us who they are and what they do, bringing back all those beautiful memories – make us stop for a while in our everyday routine.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
There was not a question how to make a unique project, it was more about designing a space, related to nature and craft, which is mostly reflected by usage and treatment of material.
