A House by the Sea

The country house on the island of I‘, the work of architect Eligio Legović, in the picturesque surroundings of the Zadar archipelago, stands on a protruding cape, commanding a view of the very threshold of the Kornati islands. 


The prominent location and extraordinary surroundings represent a stimulating factor and a challenge in regard to adaptation to the given natural settings and to the self-effacing architectonic artistic work. 


Stretched out on a rock, the house is highly articulated in an answer to the promontory tectonics giving, at the same time, the possibility to the user to select between a variety of views of the infinite sea blue extending in front of him.
