Located near the Divčibare, on the slope of Mount Maljen in western Serbia, Tijana & Andreja Mitrović have remodeled a mountain chalet by adding a geometric white volume beside it.
Designed by combining and connecting the two main monolithic volumes, the intent was to merge the traditional and the contemporary to create a unique aesthetic and a structure sympathetic to its surroundings.
The black half of the house draws inspiration from original mountain homes. The structure is emphasized through the use of natural materials such as traditional timber shingle cladding.
The white portion of the house connects to the outside through a grand picture window, which guides the transition from the artificial to the natural.
