Known for its unique, modern take on traditional architecture, Slovenian architecture firm Bevk Perovic Arhitekti has designed Farmhouse HB as a rustic-style home with a nod toward contemporary urban design. This barn-shaped house has a long, low profile that’s perfectly suited to this rural setting in Ljubljana Pirnice, Slovenia. But that’s where convention ends and the modern urban inspirations come to life. The farmhouse is topped by a contemporary aluminum roof which extends down the home’s sides. The front and rear facades of this house are glass, blending the home with its surrounding pastoral landscape while flooding interiors with plenty of natural light. The home’s interior extends outside onto the grass via wooden decks, inviting outdoor living through the large sliding glass doors. The modern interior was designed without any dividing walls, resulting in a chic, open-concept floor plan conducive to socializing and entertaining. But when some privacy is in order, the bedrooms and library are enclosed in sunken concrete level built below grade, which opens onto a private patio. Bevk Perovic Arhitekti.
