Can architecture become just another part of landscape? Or landscape part of architecture itself? This housing project tends to bring attention to these questions by merging architecture with landscape and co-existing as one.
Located in Novobërdë, just outside the city of Gjilan in Kosovo, House Şerif lies on a beautiful natural habitat, aligned to a forest of rich biodiversity. Following the terrain, orientation, and sustainability principles, the design tends to dissolve into landscape, by exploring new building materials, façade choices, colors and new architectural design of interior spaces and the house itself.
Accommodating a family of approximately 5 people, House Serif is composed of one full floor and one half floor under the roof, with a total surface of 150m2. In terms of functional composition, it owns one bedroom on the ground floor and two on the first floor, two bathrooms, storage and utility spaces, a kitchen aligned to a spatious living room as well as a large terrace facing the garden and pool areas. To create a closer relation with the landscape, a characteristic loft/gallery is designed in the living room area, also introducing magnificent views towards the nature outside.
