bedrock house in croatia absorbs the surroundings with its transparent façades

bedrock house by idis turato employs two continuous walls in order to divide and unite, break away from and come together with the topography as well as the arrangement of activities taking place within the house. it extends from east to west, hiding from the north while fully opening and exposing itself to the south. it has no distinct windows, no façade, no separate spaces — it is made of two walls, two roofs, and two volumes.

the execution of the house is straightforward and the technology is widely recognizable — it uses concrete, steel, and glass. its programs and activities are accompanied by the generic white furniture, such as mies van der rohe loungers, charles and ray eames chairs, chesterfield sofas and recliners — the expected components in the context of sought-after modernity.

the building is clad in travertine, laid on the grass and mediterranean herbs, cut into a limestone rock, precisely placed into a pre-existing fold at the vast site. bedrock house draws its energy from its dimensions, the light, orientation and deliberate juxtaposition of chosen architectural features.
