Boštjan Kos, idea leader of the renovation of the Sun House.
Boštjan is a man who does not run out of ideas and energy. He has done many things in his career; he is a craftsman in the true sense of the word. A carpenter by education, and most enthusiastic about natural materials and coexistence with nature. He sees a great challenge in the renovation of apartments and houses, where he can leave his mark. His first major renovation was the renovation of Bistra Hut on Velika Planina, where he combined his ideas with his sister, the architect Zala Kos. They joined their strenghts and knowledge also during the renovation of The Sun House. Since 2019 the House is succesfully managed by Boštjan's wife Julija. Boštjan is otherwise engaged in the manufacture and installation of wooden fair stands in his company Amsel plus d.o.o.

Zala Kos, architect
The logic of the architectural solution, sincerity in terms of design, durability and environmental friendliness, a sense of warmth of the living environment. These are the elements that repeatedly encourage her to be creative in planning new buildings and renovating old ones. All this was nicely coordinated during the renovation of the Sun House beneath Pokljuka plateau.
