Stone House near Sofia

Located at the end of a picturesque river valley and just under a massive vertical rock this retreat house combines simple volume and complex spatial structure. The main living space occupies the entire floor area of the first level.

Its open space is not disturbed by any vertical structure. Different zones are defined by the height of the suspended volumes containing the various spaces above.

The solid shell of stone and concrete supports the suspended wooden structure. Total opening towards the rock of both the levels creates the ambiguous intimate space behind the house. The grassed roof terrace at the end of the stairs traversing the entire house offers maximum privacy and a spectacular view to the natural surroundings.

This project is about the dynamic balance of many intended, inevitable and irresistible oppositions. The result is stable enough to be called equilibristic.
