MISIJA MLADA KOHEZIJA/SPOTLIGHT: HOUSE MANDROVA - Old & modern coming together

6. 2. 2023

About five years ago, EVA PAVLIČ SEIFERT and ALJAŽ CELARC moved to a remote village on the southern border with Croatia, which is known to have some of the longest and coldest winters in Slovenia. There they kick-started their project called House Mandrova by completely renovating an old abandoned house. It followed their decision to leave the big city life and start living differently, much closer to nature. Preserving the local cultural heritage is really important to them. House Mandrova’s community-oriented vision goes hand in hand with nature without the pressure of social norms. The contents of today's SPOTLIGHT (as part of RTV Slovenia's 'Mission Young cohesion' project) were made possible with financial support from the EU. Responsibility for the contents lies entirely with the author/editorship, and it does not necessarily reflect the views of the European Union.
