The exploration of tourism typologies on the Adriatic coast was investigated in a study for the resort of tourist villas. The study examined the possibilities of building of the tourist village in Zadar. Villas were developed investigating specific typology of the tourist villa with their program tasks and spatial possibilities, but also the way of adapting to the specific local context and characteristic terrain.

These houses follow sloap contours and correspond with terrain through vast floating terraces which can function as private viewing decks or as places for gathering with large group of friends. Terrace is concieved as the extension of living room; this provides flexibility and opennes, initial element in designing.

Each of these units can be multiplied and combined creating different spatial and functional relations. Three longitudinal units can form one individual house or combination of two and more separate residencens with their own approaches and entrances. This is due to great flexibility of this type.

This design with its terraces, adaptibility and opennes reflects the idea of beach houses as places in-between need for privacy as well as need for openness. Linear form adherent to sloap makes the entire structure instilled in landscapecreating images that coorespondes with natural and cultural context of Dalmatian coast.
