The highly modern the J20 House in Zagreb, Croatia was designed by studio DAR612 as a “juxtaposition of two elements – a primary longitudinal wing with white finish, and a perpendicular element covered in dark wood coating. A T-shaped floor plan enables maximum south and west orientation, as well as views from both levels”. The residence is surrounded by a courtyard providing just enough space for outdoor leisure activities.

The residence is structured as follows: “A two story-high entry divides the house into two segments connected with a wooden bridge: the east segment is a secondary space with a garage on the ground floor and children’s area on the first floor; the west segment contains the main living spaces and parents’ quarters on the upper floor“. The interiors exude openness and their minimalism is contrasted by warmth coming from the wooden additions. A large swimming pool is located above the living room and can be spotted from other parts of the house as well.
