Lodge in Stari Glog, Croatia
- Working with concepts toward capturing sounds of the forest, this lodge design offers occupants a retreat from the city in the Zagreb countryside. It is intended to accommodate moments for family gathering, celebration and repose. The proposal also seeks to shield neighboring properties from possible noise from hosted events or activities at the lodge.
The proposal articulates re-purposing of local vernacular materials into a new arrangement. Low, horizontal openings also frame views into the incredible adjacent landscape. Upper skylights permit views to the ever-changing sky and weather through the forest canopy.
