The architecture studio DVA Arhitekta based in Zagreb has a modern one in 2012 White House realized with a striking appearance. Project A + А was designed for a young couple with a dog and included the renovation and remodeling of an existing house in the same neighborhood where they both grew up. Taking the existing building into account, the facade and living space have been optimized and now reflect the needs of the two new residents. In this way, the renovated house creates an exciting and powerful atmosphere in the area while at the same time maintaining the rhythm of the local architecture.
Renovated white house in Zagreb
The two-family house existing on the property should appear unchanged even after the renovation. For this reason, the architects decided to start with the existing floor plan of the house. Since the renovation, however, the contemporary building has been a stylish eye-catcher and focuses the attention of visitors and passers-by. The pure white exterior was balanced by a warm interior with wood accents and neutral colors.
White House A + A
The living space of 387 square meters is distributed over 2 floors and 2 mezzanines. Partly sloping rooms, oversized skylights and facet-like facade give the house spontaneity, rhythm and dynamism. The dormers are completely missing, but at the same time the existing house was expanded – most obviously on the roof. Equipped with contemporary designer furniture, the interior of the building impresses with its unique style and cosiness.
