This complicated was constructed as a low-revenue residence for younger households and couples within the industrial district of Izola on the Slovenian coast. The venture is just referred to as “Apartments on the coast” and it was designed by OFIS ( we introduced one other venture made by them on this publish – Tetris Apartments ). The hanging improvement boasts lovely views and makes sensible use of photo voltaic shading and pure air flow to manage its interiors all yr-spherical. Designed to imitate the rhythmic construction of honeycomb, the format creates “dynamic elevations and presents privateness to the neighboring house owners.” We’re additionally impressed by the collaborative effort behind the challenge which at its core was comprised of a N-individual design staff together with Rok Oman, Špela Videčnik, Martina Lipicer, Neža Oman, Nejc Batistič, Florian Frey, Marisa Baptista, and špela uršič.
Each of the balcony modules is topped with a colourful textile shade that gives for environment friendly photo voltaic shading and air flow: “Textile parts fastened on the entrance of the balconies block direct daylight and accumulate ‘air buffer’ zone. In the summer time, scorching air collected within the space behind the shadings is of course ventilated by means of (10 cm holes) perforated aspect partitions of the balconies. In the winter the nice and cozy air stays within the space and offers further heating to the flats.” – Via
