House near Pristina, Kosovo
Kosovo is at a stage when the changes happen quickly and as it might look chaoticly. Underneath the surface though there lies the patriarchal spirit of the old traditions. The client has a successful business in Pristina but has chosen to live in a village 75 km away from the city. We proposed a more conservative style for the house but with a minimum detail so it has a contemporary look. It is situated on a hill and the intention was that it becomes a visual extention to the hill rather than standing out of its surrounding. This is also the reason for the blue colour of the roof tiles – a reflection of the clear Kosovo sky.
