Issa Megaron is a temporary family retreat, located in a rural area in the middle of the Croatian island of Vis. Designed by PROARH in 2016, the house measures 420m² (4,520ft²).
The house is envisioned as a dug in volume, a residential pocket between the stretches of space forming walls, an artificial grotto, a memory of a primitive shelter. It consists of two levels – sleeping quarters/lounge on the first floor and downstairs open space dining/kitchen/lounge area, opened to the covered and uncovered terraces and pool deck. All the bearing elements are made of reinforced concrete. Stone from the site was used for the cladding of the facade.
