Estranged from fair weather, this spectacular project by SoNo Arhitekti emerges from a snow dusting in Vrhnika, Slovenia. The barn like structure forgives the elements with ease, rather compliments the white kissed landscape with dark siding.  Windows expose the road frontage to the first and second floors, illuminating in the nighttime like a sweet doll house perfectly arranged. The attic nestles the children in their quarters whereas the master situated itself privately on the ground floor. Generous ceilings lunge into a liberating open floor plan with design elements gravitating toward nature outside.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
