Slovenian company Arhitektura has completed a functional and fully connected live-work space called House for a Ceramic Designer. The U-shaped house located in the suburbs of Ljubljana is comprised of three areas: the main living space, a workshop for a ceramic designer and artist, and sleeping quarters. While the house faces its surroundings with an austere concrete finish, it opens up internally to a paved patio and small garden.

Floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around the atrium, connecting each wing to the outdoor space. Continuing with this minimalist yet natural aesthetic, warm ash and white oak wood walls complement the neutral color palette of the terrazzo floors. The tectonic exterior, with its silky smooth concrete facade, references the ceramic pieces in the studio, which are stored in an exhibition-like display. A juxtaposition of stark minimalism and natural detailing, the low concrete building seamlessly integrates a ceramic studio with living spaces.
