The renovation of this semi-detached house in Ljubljana’s central area stems from the spatial limitations of the location and tries to squeeze the best out of them. With the renovation of this typical post-war house, built in 1959, with lifted ground floor, the house is adapted to the modern needs of a family with small children. Due to the monumental protection and complex legal relationships associated with adjacent land, the result of this perseverance is still the fulfilment of the client's wishes, to live in a house with a garden in the city centre. The original composition and the overall character of “villa” in the greenery is kept. The renovated half of the semi-detached still mirrors the other half and the overall look of the street is preserved. The main intervention took place in the garden side of the house. An extension has been added, a new heart of the home - a living room with the kitchen that balances the height difference between the level of the street and the original ground floor. The extension stands on a one-meter-high embankment to better connect the building with the garden. It is designed as a pavilion in greenery; on three sides surrounded by a four-meter-wide green belt, as the permitted deviation from the plot boundary is. However, since the extension opens wide on two sides, the boundaries between the exterior and the interior is blurred and stretches the living room to the boundary of the plot. This modest garden becomes an outdoor living room. At the entrance to the house, there is a public garden, the corner of the plot has been opened and it is not fenced. The green roof of the extension also helps to preserve the character of the villa in the greenery, and at the same time improves the climatic characteristics of the building. After the renovation, the facility is low-energy, according to all standards of today. The existing building’s structure was preserved; only the use of the rooms was flipped and slightly changed in their purpose. The interior is simple and monochromatic, the main materials are wood and white. The spaces can be adapted to the changing needs of a family with young children.
