While working on this project the main question that was raised was how to integrate a contemporary facility into the existing ambient of a small Istrian town, how to incorporate something modern into the existing area, which in itself entails a string of details and functions that considerably vary from the rural image of surrounding households, all the while striving to keep the balance with the community in general.

During the designing process local structures and materials were researched in detail, particularly the way in which the materials (primarily stone) were used, shaped and experienced. The path led from traditional Istrian Casitas to family estates. The Casita as the most primitive structural form, but with a clear and well-defined outline (wall, opening, roof) and fascinating stacked-stone structure alongside the family estate as a group of separate facilities which function as a whole.

Furthermore, with its stone-lined facade and roof it directly communicates with the location it is situated in a subtle, but expressively individual manner.
