Architectural Design of a Family House at the Island of Šipan, Croatia

The project of the family house in Šipanska Luka is planned as a reconstruction of an existing residential building. The building plot is located in the pedestrian zone, without road access. The construction follows the line of the existing house towards the coast, positioning the main facade aligned with the sea promenade. The house is located on a sloping terrain, on terraces at different height levels with stone retaining walls.

The planned building will consist of two residential units, one on each floor. The basement residential unit will consist of a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The entrance to the residential unit is from the terrace on the west side.

The residential unit on the ground floor consists of a living room with kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The living room has a higher height, and a gallery also appears in that area. The entrance to this unit is from the south, on the side of the back garden.

The building has a passable flat roof with an outdoor pool, canopy with solar collectors and a summer kitchen.

The façade is designed as a combination of plaster and stone cladding, with large glass openings emphasizing the openness to the sea and the double height space on the first floor. The glazed parts of the facade have external sun protection in the form of shutters. Terraces around the house will be planted with indigenous vegetation.
