Villa Old Oaks / OFIS arhitekti
Architect: OFIS arhitekti
Location: Ljubljana, Slovenia
The house is a private residence positioned in the neighborhood of 6 larger villas. The quality of the site is a beautiful view to the existing common park with oaks over 100 years old. Therefore the aim of the building was to open view from all main spaces of the house towards these trees. The building was to provide ideal daylight conditions combined with efficient indoor and outdoor climate concept. In Slovenia there are extreme climate conditions; with hot summer, when temperatures rise up to 35C and cold winter when they drop below -10C or more. In addition there is rain in spring and autumn.
