House Rakovac has its origins in the idea of continuity in solid building techniques, especially stone masonry. This project is about family comfort and privilege to live outside the city. Due to the small site plot, the main idea was to get as much usable space not endangering the neighbors, nature and a wonderful view over the city of Novi Sad.

Therefore, bearing in mind all the mentioned client's wishes as well as extremely steep terrain, it was decided to position the future house at the very beginning of the plot as a free-standing building that dominates the landscape and makes a clear statement - ‘’I am here’’. The natural stone carries the whole structure as at the same time above floor is in natural flamed wood stripes placed on a substructure with stone wool insulation as ventilated facade behind. This facade is attached on eco-blocks of non-standard thickness in order to improve the energy efficiency of the house as much as possible.

Residential area is divided in two zones, day area downstairs includes living, working and dining room while upper floor is reserved for night activities, with separated 3 large bedrooms. Curiosity of this house is in number of terraces (ground floor, first floor, roof) from which one can observe and enjoy Novi Sad cityscape and beautiful blue Danube.
