With the architecture of Villa Šterić, owned by Dragoljub Šterić, Zloković continues to consider the spatial and organizational concepts of single-family residential buildings. Conceived as a detached family house on a plot, withdrawn from street regulation, Villa Šterić is spatially directed towards the garden towards which the cubes of the building are lowered. Although the structure of the house favored the application of a freer and more open plan, the organization of the interior space was solved more conventionally, with attention focused on the external composition of volumes and their gradation, and the construction of the basic opening module (width 150 cm) which are adjusted to the geometry of the façade surfaces by varying the dimensions. In the narrower part of the plot, between the house and the fence, an elongated underground shelter from the air attack was projected. In the narrower part of the plot, between the house and the fence, an elongated underground shelter from the air attack was projected. The focus on uncompromising modernist shaping of form is also manifested by the creation of a model – a model of a house, which is kept in the collection of the Museum of Science and Technology, through which Zloković, following the example of a consistent modernist, examines form relations and abstract expressions of form.
