Zela House

Zela House, located in the northeast part of Tirana near the main urban routes, is situated in an area filled with houses built during the era of democracy. The chaotic nature of the surroundings greatly influenced the design of the house, leading us to create a pure volume that serves as a catalyst for new architecture.

Volumes are shifted relative to each other to maximize available space. Large openings are incorporated on the south side to maximize sunlight and provide expansive views of the courtyard. The shift in volume was utilized to create a spacious terrace. The use of travertine stone for the facade adds a touch of audacity to the design.
