“Belgrade Terraces” by Z&Z Design Studio

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Z&Z Studios have submitted a proposal for a public promenade in Belgrade, Serbia. Recent research shows that on the average foreign tourist question — what is it that it leaves the biggest impression when you visit Belgrade — in 95% of cases will tell you – people or citizens of Belgrade.

Bearing in mind this fact, the guiding idea of this project and have just been – the people.
New Belgrade large terraces are designed at the same time as new symbol of entering the old town and as a final solution for direct links between the two historical entities – Kosancicev venac and old Sava river port, tourist port Belgrade today.

The big challenge was at the same time to respect the old background ambient atmosphere, and the buildings of modern architecture.
