WAN recently caught up with Tina Gregorič, Co-founder of dekleva gregorič architects. Tina and her partner Aljoša Dekleva, set up the architectural practice back in 2003 and have since been recognised within the WAN AWARDS with their winning 2015 House of the Year entry Compact Karst house.
This new book illustrates a series of distinct buildings and projects, allegedly belonging to the realm of individual dwelling, created over a decade of Dekleva Gregorič architects, and presents them in comprehensive and comparative mode. Selected projects span diverse climates and localities, where each project is a particular response to intense research of specific constrains and conditions of the context addressing various notions of home that become the ultimate generative tools aiming to challenge the obvious. The individual houses, objects of experiment, appear as shelters operating as interfaces between nature and humans. The concluding project [Home at Arsenale] for La Biennale di Venezia intentionally reflects practice’s approach to thinking and making architecture, underlining its social position, material manifestation and architectural legacy. With introduction by Dominique Boudet and essays by Thibaut de Ruyter, Hrvoje Njirić, Miloš Kosec, Jure Grohar and Mateja Medvedič.
