Louise and Neil had bought a hillside plot of land in the south part of, what locals call the Peninsula (Pelješac), with a plan to run their holiday business from. The complex, that is overlooking the sea, contains of a stone-built 3-storey house, typical of the style on the Dalmatian Coast, and its later addition of a plain square concrete-box geometry. The house was to become a holiday accommodation and the extension was to make a delightful family home.
The house, now called Sea Captain’s House, was restored and divided into six double-bedrooms with adjacent en-suites and sea view each. The modern addition became a duplex flat with a spiral staircase leading onto the third-floor green roof terrace providing panoramic views across scenic surroundings. The original subterranean parts of the two structures had to be tanked, reinforced and insulated before the proposed works could commence. The clients found most of the original fabric dilapidated therefore in need of modernisation. In the effect, the front elevation was restored in local stone, new joinery and shatters fitted as well as roofs rebuilt. Although traditional in its external appearance we have designed modern minimal interior with quality fittings and furniture. The complex was equipped with most up-to-date service infrastructure meeting demands of modern holidaymakers.
