100-Year-Old Service Shed in Slovenia Becomes a Miniature Home

Ljubljana Micro House Sliding Window Wall and Atrium

A wall-sized sliding window opens the downstairs living area up to a intimate atrium-style outdoor area. A narrow deck, which is screened from the surrounding houses, brings an astonishing amount of indirect sunlight into the ground floor.

Architect  Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti

A 100-year-old service building located in a protected historical area of Ljubljana, Slovenia was transformed into a modest residence with the help of Dekleva Gregorič Architects. Since it faces north, one of the architects’ biggest challenges was to bring light into the interior while permitting privacy from its closely packed neighbors.

Built as an urban pied-à-terre for the parents of principle architect, Aljoša Dekleva — co-founder of the studio alongside wife Tina Gregorič  — the house has a total area of around 450-square-feet.
