Villa Criss-Cross Envelope is a single-family home that draws inspiration from modernist and rectangular architecture. The residence was designed by the OFIS creative team and is located in the heart of Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Boasting a monochromatic facade, the home is made up of layered linear shapes and features perforated elements when examined at close range. The minimalist home may seem industrial from its exterior but features a light-filled and serene interior layout.

Mixing natural woods with glass partitions, OFIS makes traditional materials more sophisticated and polished. The Villa Criss-Cross Envelope is a rectangular architecture project that embraces the art of simplicity. When viewed at night, the home's glass elements glow like a light box and are balanced with its heavier, metal cladding.
