A toplight in the roof of the courtyard provides extra light without glare, while full-height glazing slides across to provide access outdoors.
Slovenian studio OFIS Arhitekti have added a bleached larch extension onto the side of a 1930s house in Ljubljana designed by modernist architect Josip Costaperaria. As the house has since been converted into apartments, the new block provides a living and dining room for the ground floor residents and a small rooftop balcony for their neighbours on the floor above. A green perspex canopy cantilevers from the edge of the block to shelter a ramped driveway, while bicycle storage is contained in the space beneath. Each of the larch-clad columns and eaves have an exaggerated width to create chunky detailing that contrasts with the style of the existing building. OFIS Arhitekti have also recently completed an apartment with staggered floors and a scaly apartment block . See all our stories about OFIS Arhitekti »
