Modern dinar house suitable for easy assembly and disassembly

The Dinaric house for the 21st century is being built from prefabricated laminated wooden profiles, and the interior is formed around the hearth.

Architects Bojan Vučen, Aleksandar Brelak i Marko Vučen sought inspiration for the design of this building in the architectural heritage of the local climate of the Manjača mountain, ie in the model dinar houses which was the dominant form of construction in this region. In addition to the conceptual foundation in the local historical continuity, the Dinaric house was interesting to the authors from Banja Luka in the context of the topic of the Mini home competition – prefabricated house.

The Dinaric house is designed as suitable for easy assembly / disassembly and transport.

Due to the unstable historical circumstances and the livestock way of life, the local population was often on the move, and they carried their houses with them. In that sense, the Dinaric house is conceived as suitable for easy assembly / disassembly and transport.

Rustic look

The proposed solution represents a compact architectural form which, with its basic form, follows the model of a Dinaric house, with the simplification of the form being achieved through extruding the roof eaves downwards, so that the roof and walls are condensed into one structure, which lies directly on the pedestal – the foundations.

The openings on the building are made as a modern geometric interpretation roof openings for the ventilation of the Dinaric house. Through use shingles with which the building is materialized, the facade takes on the rustic look of the surrounding landscape. This link is further underlined by pressing local stone into concrete foundations, as well as through a modern interpretation of the access staircase and other elements.

The living area is formed around a vertical central motif – a fireplace.

The interior of the building symbolically represents the atmosphere and character asylum. It is materialized by use smooth plywood in the natural color of the wood.

The spatial plan, like the traditional model, is conceived as open, with “central cube”Which summarizes the functions of the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. The living area is formed around a vertical central motif – hearths.

Prefabricated construction

The basic construction of the building is designed from prefabricated laminated wood profiles in order to economically transport and install as well as the environmental aspect because it reduces waste.

Mini home competition

The project of this prefabricated dinar house competed in a competition Mini home: Small prefabricated house which was organized by the Gradnja portal. See who all won awards here.
