Reconstruction of a Family House/Niš
Promoting the dialogue between the old and the new, while showing respect for differences between the two, seeking a contemporary result, gives an architectural design that protects and enhances the identity of the former construction.
The extension of the family house designed in the period between the two wars emphasized the original form while providing a more comfortable living environment. The entire existing condition has been kept in size, the facade has been renovated and the extension is a “passe-partout” of the former architecture. The angular location specificity was made possible by the semicircular volume that was followed in the extension. The main entrance is positioned on the west side, while the extended area is accessed by a separate entrance on the north side. On the newly designed floor, a separate residential unit has been formed to accommodate the living room, dining room, and kitchen as an open space, a balcony, three bedrooms, and sanitary facilities. One of the bedrooms is designed so that it can become a study if necessary. The balcony is large and offers a view of the inner yard.
The extended part of the building has dark tone facade brick texture sheets as a finishing. The roof terrace is enriched with greenery, and the glass fence offers complete transparency.
