This straf-roofed cottage house is situated in Zagorje, Croatia. The traditional exterior got the modern look thanks to a glass cube extension and imaginatively-designed sliding glass door.

Design studio PROARCH intent on preserving the essence of the local architectural character. They extended original straw roof out over main volume and enclosed glass room below. This glass cube sits on wood decking. The most amazing thing in that cottage are thesliding glass door that completes the glass cube when closed, but, when open, extends off the wood platform entirely, into the surrounding landscape.
