Abstract: Considering the development of tourism in the coastal area, there are more and more demands for the construction of urban villas. Therefore, this paper presents the structural response for the design solution of an urban villa located in the Croatian coastal area. The original architectural design of the villa is the work of Mexican architect Elias Rizo and is recorded under the name of "VR Tapalpa House / Elias Rizo Arquitectos". Several variant solutions were modeled. A load bearing system consisting of a mixed wall part (left lamella) and a skeleton part (right lamella) suggested itself as the final optimal structural solution.
