Obnova domacije Vrlovcnik, Matkov kot
Crouched along the hillsides of the remote Matkov kot valley lie old farmhouses. Abundance of natural and cultural heritage calls for a subtle intervention in the existing site; the renovation aims to contribute to the overall appeal of the site with the preservation of the region by respecting its identity. Reviving forgotten techniques with local contractors whilst using local materials gives an added value to the renovation and addresses the social aspect of building regionally.
Statement of the jury
Traditional craft techniques were used for the renovation of these old farmhouses. Local craftsmen were also employed to execute these techniques, and used local materials for this purpose. A lovely project that was implemented with tremendous sensitivity and respect for regional identity.
