These extraordinery houses will be in the spotlight in a Discovery show called ”The ultimate houses” that airs on Feb14th. Amongst many outstanding homes such as Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier, there’s also the villa under extension in Bled, Slovenia designed by OFIS Architects. Needless to say I’m thrilled, considering the fact that I live about 4km away from the house – WOOHOO! :D but I may never be able to see it up close since it’s a family home – aww =( But you and I can check out some photos below – medium yay :}. The project was completed in 2004 and the interesting thing about it is how the architects solved the problem of many building restrictions of the area/ town. It’s nearly impossible to build around the lake unless you’re Tito, yet they found their ways around the laws and built an under extension under the existing old villa that was to remain intact. Well done OFIS! And if you need an intern I am totally available. Totally. I master CAD as much as I master jumping (see banner above).
