Recently designed and implemented by Studio Metrocubo, House Sperone is a private residence located in Novigrad, Croatia, on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. Integrated within the medieval city walls, this place previously functioned as a wine cellar and a discotheque. Today, it is a 5 star holiday house with four bedrooms, living area, wellness and indoor swimming pool. The new design of the building “is put in the background of the existing architectural heritage, further highlighted in all its parts. This creates a symbiosis of past and present, stone walls with striking crenelations at the top mixed with contemporary residential functions inside the house”, explained the project developers.
Aiming to create a visual experience with the sea and medieval stone walls, the architects oriented all the major facilities of the residence towards these elements: “The ground floor has a spacious spa area with indoor pool, sauna and gym. Sliding floor to ceiling glass windows can be completely open for access to the lower terrace with summer kitchen and sun deck. Upper level, for the most part, contains daily spaces – living room, kitchen and dining area incorporated in a whole. In front of the living area there is a large terrace directly connected to the interior with sliding glass walls”. On the rooftop of the building, another lovely outdoor space welcomes guests to contemplate the old town of Novigrad and the magic places where it comes in contact with the sea.
