Family house Sepia
Three years after intensive renovations and interior repairs, the family house Sepia was completed. It has over 130 square meters and consists of the ground floor, three floors and gallery.
The original stone walls were preserved, and everything else was new. New panels made of wooden beams with reinforced concrete structure and roof were made. Given the very small floor area, the goal was to use space as much as possible. The basic idea was to respect the traditional construction with a somewhat contemporary interior, and the most commonly materials we used were wood, stone, iron and concrete.
Entering the ground floor, we find ourselves in the open space of the living room and there is also a toilet and an internal staircase which, besides leading to the upper floors, also allows the penetration of greater amount of natural light in the interior. On the first and second floor there are en suite bedrooms and on the third floor there is a kitchen with dining room and a terrace, while the gallery is a working area.
Old houses are very demanding, but in the end they are always worth it. The house gives you back something from its previous life and helps you make something new and unpredictable. This ultimately is felt the most in its everyday use.
