Simple Elegance In Slovakian Priest’s Residence Boasting Serenity

Named after the Latin word for ” free time” – Otio – this residence was built for a catholic priest. At first glance, the stone wall and saddle roof look simple and graceful, but a walk around the property reveals an atrium shaped out of the stone wall and leading to the interiors through a glazed wall. Here, built-in furniture, alongside Verner Panton chairs and an Eames Lounge Chair rest on stone floors and contrast with the white walls. With a budget of 150,000 Euro, Sebastian Nagy Architects constructed the home in Dražovce, Nitra, Slovakia as a single person residence spreading over 1,400 square feet. The entrance is guarded by a cross just above the entrance, while the inside allows a clear view of the nearby Roman Catholic church of Francis Xavier. Adapted to suit a modern lifestyle and constructed in the parish garden, the Otio Residence displays its functional design in a successful attempt of becoming a link between the past and the present.
