Houses on Slovenia’s Karst Plateau have traditionally been small stone affairs ever since the neighboring Italians borrowed the region’s trees to build the city of Venice. This one was completed just last year by Dekleva Gregorič Arhitekti, but from the outside it could almost pass for something several centuries old. The larger window is a giveaway, though, and the stone here is just a façade over concrete. The inside of the 990-square-foot structure is a completely modern design, with wooden inserts dividing the ground floor into separate areas without chopping it up into rooms. Above, the bedrooms are built according to a “house in a house” concept featuring individually peaked ceilings that make it feel as if each room is its own tiny house.
