The experience of retreat, coupled with the in-depth study of the corresponding literature has helped me to elucidate common sensorial and experiential features in different architectures of retreat, i.e. of common architectural qualities that trigger or stimulate sensorial experiences. I have divided these characteristics into several overarching, mutually intertwining categories: sensuality, retreat, nature, construction, natural materials, spatial openness, shape, shadow, intimacy, silence, and meeting of the opposites. I have combined all these findings in the architectural design of a remote house in the Slovenian Istria, and presented them in the context of the architectural project entitled StoneHouse.
