Villa in Starigrad Paklenica

On the border of the national park Paklenica and a first row to the sea. Villa in Starigrad Paklenica enhances the experience of the place where the mountain meets the sea. Integrated naturally on the steep slope this building is actually a reconstructed existing house transformed into an unrecognizable object. Designed as a stacking of floors vertically with a shift to make the most of the location. This way each floor has  sun and sea oriented terraces, maximizing views to the south. Existing plinth building is half buried into the ground and covered with stone. Moving vertically, the rough base is slowly opening with the large glass elements ending as a glass top floor overlooking the bay.
