Although it is placed far from the sea, the VLHS House is situated in a sunny Mediterranean surroundings of rural Herzegovinian landscape, below beautiful and rocky southern mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina, near breath-taking Neretva River, and relatively close to the rich cultural heritage around and within the city of Mostar. In a conceptual sense, the House recreates culturally conditioned spatial patterns inherent to local urbanity, and at the level of immediate experience it resembles a small Herzegovinian village placed under “one big roof”.
