Amazing House In Croatia. Nest and Cave House

The trend for extreme consoles continues with this house in Croatia. One floor effectively overhangs the other.

Nest and Cave House overlooks the sea in the Opatija Riviera, where houses typically follow a national style with  clay roof tiles and gabled profiles. This is a building with more of a dominance over the hillside.

The irregular angle of the cantilever divides the two storeys of the house into two distinct volumes. The ground floor is a rugged concrete building set into the lawn, while the steel frame of the upper level is coated with white cladding panels that help to create a lightweight structure.

Therefore, the house consists of an entrenched concrete bunker (the bedrooms) on which a steel spatial grid structure is placed and which elongates into a 17 meter long console.
