Avala House is a house for a local craftsman, made of concrete, steel and glass and designed by TEN Studio in a pastural landscape on Avala mountain near Belgrade, Serbia.

Situated in a pastoral landscape near Belgrade in Serbia, the house is a case study on how design effort can turn sufficiency into a desirable form for living. The owner – a local craftsman working on interior refurbishments and domestic maintenance – invited us to design and build with him. The central premise of the project was to include the future owner in the process of making and maintaining the building, with design decisions focused on durable structures and surfaces from local material and construction knowledge.
