When challenged to rebuild an old “gumno” (traditional farming unit in Croatia used for threshing the grains), the creative team at Turato Architects came up with a spectacular result.

“We often produce ideas that may not have occurred to you – this could potentially save you money and produce a far more pleasing and functional building or space. We listen carefully to your needs and wants and use this information to produce ideas even for the simplest of projects.” says the team.

Gumno House is an original contemporary residence boasting a total area of 10,010 square feet within the plot. In the planning process, it was decided that gumno, together with the circular dry stone wall, should be restored, and that the cultivated garden, driveway, orchard, and olive grove on the site should become a kind of a contemporary park, a reanimated place where a family would meet with their guests, friends, and the locals of Risika village.

According to the architects, The Gumno house consists of three different functional areas:

The first is a massive, rustic cellar containing a konoba, which serves as a wine and oil storage space, as well as a place for gatherings. The second is a spacious glazed living room intended for the family. Finally, the third is a big pool with an indispensable view of the sea. On top of the house there are four small units with intimate terraces and a quiet sleeping area for individuals.
