This holiday house is located on a large flat site divided in the middle by a stone wall, thus creating two terraces: the upper terrace is used as a location for the house, and the lower for a garden.

Social Housing Rijeka – 4 Jan 2013
“The project is our design-research effort to create a habitat where people, buildings and nature are balanced in their coexistence. Our premise of a worth while effort: If for hundreds of years humanity focused on the ways to be independent of and eventually master nature, then during this century humanity will focus on the ways to come to an understanding on how to be part of nature”.

Nest and Cave House – 5 Dec 2012
The house and the place it renders are not structured solely by the slope onto which they are built (as it is the case with most villas in Opatija). Instead, it actively constructs the landscape and intertwines with it by laying down the ground level (landscape) and by placing on it an upper object which hovers above as a displaced level.

Bus Station in Osijek – 16 Oct 2012
This building was constructed on the principle of public-private partnerships. The urban solution of the bus station building was in many ways defined by its placement in the urban tissue. The longitude of the city situated on the River Drava is reflected in the positioning of the bus station building on the parcel of land.
