Creating modern pure architecture in a natural environment is a challenge for any architect. Letting your work of art be subdued to slopes and incredible scenery whilst keeping your design line intact is an even more difficult job.The Divcibare Mountain Home designed by Belgrade-based architecture practice EXE Studio manages to merge the simplicity and beauty of form with the natural elements and textures in an asymmetrical composition sympathetic to the environment and interior space as well. Small elementary areas have been created to solve the basic needs, maintaining a minimal structural footprint and leaving the natural surroundings untouched.
“Through the duality of the house, with two main volumes; the intent was to merge the traditional and the contemporary to create a unique aesthetic and a structure sympathetic to its surroundings.”
The merge of traditional basic forms and minimal geometric shapes creates a perfect equilibrium inserted into a natural wonder.
Smple minimal interiors featuring basic furniture elements have been proposed, the primary goal of the architects being the incredible views and simplicity of shapes.
The tension between the two main elements is born from the shape itself and the textures and materials used. The natural untouched environment is the one that dictates the simple intervention and balances the design line without being overpowered by it in any way.
The natural slope has been used and the incredible perspectives amplified by the orientation of the home and the usage of big windows on the south est facade of the volumes.
