This individual residential house is located in a suburb of Sarajevo. The house was designed in the ambit of an older building on the same site, which was an urbanistic requirement. The program demanded a much greater capacity for the new facility. For this reason, a concept is created for reduction of the horizontal communication into vertical ones and for use of the basement floor for habitation by introducing lighting through denivelled patio. Rooms are becoming platforms that are distributed around the spiral staircase while catching views of the surrounding countryside and high mountains in the background ,through internal and external openings.

FILTER is a group of young architects in Sarajevo, who gathered in 2009 after winning first place in the competition for the ‘Historical Park of the Medieval Bosnia’. So far, the group has been working on various projects of architecture, urbanism and design.
The group is organized nonhierarchically, while insisting on the exchange of opinions. The work on the project seeks to question a given problem, while design is understood as a certain type of research. Thanks to this approach, the process of harmonization of attitudes becomes FILTER to create quality.
