Kliment Ivanov Architects


Novi han village, Bulgaria



Gross Floor Area:

135 m2


Built with alterations

A summer house with an artist’s studio for woodcarving. The studio faces north to avoid direct sunlight. An existing fresh-water well defines the form of the building plan and is the focal point of the outdoor space.


The height of the building is restricted by local regulations. A solution with an “empty” roof is proposed, in which the roof planes form the ceiling, creating a high space in the living room and the studio.
