House VLHS, Mostar

Although placed far from the sea, House VLHS is situated in a sunny Mediterranean surrounding of the rural Herzegovinian landscape, below beautiful and rocky southern mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina, near breathtaking river of Neretva, and relatively close to rich cultural heritage around and within city of Mostar. In a conceptual sense, House recreates culturally conditioned spatial patterns inherent to local urbanity, and at the level of immediate experience it resembles a small Herzegovinian village placed under “one big roof”. Spatial structure of the house consists of carefully scattered Box-like structures which host intimate and servant spaces of the house, circle around the central atrium, and form “public”/”served” street-like corridors, plazas and squares in between them. In this manner the boundary between indoor and outdoor space becomes unclear, and thus a strong bond between inner space and the surrounding landscape emerges as a consequence.
