Development of the project area, analogically as the prospective development of the district, foresees creating active zones such as shopping and entertainment centers, sport and recreation spaces, cafes and restaurants and residential apartments.
At the initial stage of the project we made a decision to create a single structural unit, functionally and visually related to one another. Considering the environment and mountainous area, we decided to create terraces and develop construction accordingly, arranging green spaces, some for individual and others for public use. The shopping center is located in the middle of the territory combining two separate residential blocks. The shopping center also includes indoor sports center. Recreational space and inner courtyard include open cafes, children s’ entertainment spaces, green spaces, timber arbors with seats, where residents can gather together for different activities, like watching sport games with a fireplace for winter period.
The second part of the yard includes basketball and soccer fields, also a tennis court. From the courtyard shopping center is covered by green construction with a wavy form. On the top of the shopping center we arranged recreational zone with the principle of green roof. Road is designed under this construction and above it, is arranged illuminated garden.
