House C and House D by Studio AUTORI
- Caroline Kurze
House C and House D by studio AUTORI are a part of the ‘Terra Panonica’ estate, located in Mokrin, Serbia. ‘Terra Panonica’ estate is a cultural and tourist complex for various creative and leisure activities. With its program it focuses on cultural projects, design, education, agriculture and social development.
House C and House D are designed for a wide range of cultural and creative activities. They occupy the positions of removed utility structures of the former rural household and are focused on the central area of the property standing in a strong correlation. In form, structure and material they invoke associations with the utility sheds of the contemporary local households which are essentially just parts of the courtyard covered by a steal canopy. In that sense, the interior of both houses is designed to evoke an impression of such a canopy rather than an enclosed interior space. This feature is further accentuated by the same materialization of the shell in the interior and on the façade.
