Buzovgrad village, Bulgaria

House HA is located in the foothills of Sredna Gora. It is an old monolithic house that unites an existing and a new structure. Going through a complete renovation, the house rethinks the functional givens and along with that adds to its integrity a new annex to create new spaces and views of the surrounding garden.

In designing the new structure in order to adapt it to modern living needs, the approach was aimed at creating a harmonious unity despite the fact that the two buildings were built in different periods. This connection is most tangibly felt in the unified structure and materiality of the individual parts. The monolithic walls, built in the outline of a clean orthogonality, calmly manage to build the connection with the existing house while at the same time. And the large openings open to the garden, detailed with modern architectural details, boldly outline the new presence in the environment.

The modern extension allows a free restructuring of the functional solutions, as all the living, working and household needs are placed in the open plan of the ground floor, and the bedrooms are formed in the upper two floors of the old building.

The landscape approach is distinguished by attention and care to the existing tree vegetation, and the raw and cold concrete of the external structures only enhances the picturesque vegetation.
