RD House, Vrnjak

The „RD House“ is situated in the picturesque vineyard ambience of the small village called Vrnjak, near the town of Samobor in Croatia. The cottage-style house combines basic traditional architectural forms (rectangular, slightly elongated layout under the steep sloped roof of almost 45°); local materials (wood and clay tiles) with contemporary design concept empowered with aluminium and glass.
The ground floor is designed as a single, unique space divided with the central staircase element in two basic functional zones – living area and food & dining area. Both of these zones are oriented on the large “screen-like” window wall offering truly breath-taking views on the forest and vineyard surrounding the house.
Opposite to the ground floor spaces (which absorb all of the natural and man-made elements present on the location), the first floor spaces completely denies surroundings – connecting the one, through roof windows, with universal natural element – sky.
