The location of the planned construction is part of the central city area where transformation of the existing building structure is in process. Thanks to its position, next to the railway line, by the beginning of the last century this area was selected for construction of different industrial complexes, warehouses, and public services. During the last ten years, this transformation has intensified, with the tendency of replacing industrial and public service facilities with pronouncedly high-rise structures, built in corresponding standards.

Zavrtnica business and residential building

The new urban matrix has set the basic directions and orientations of the future residential neighbourhood. High and elongates masses are arranged on the parcel in pairs; they are maximally detached, thus achieving open views in all directions. They create a dynamic structure by stressing the void in-between as an important element of a residential block. The footprint of the garage in the basement is shifted to the verge of the project, forming a circular element in the ground-floor plan, which unifies the built structures.

The garage in the basement is spatially present to the least extent, but it is an important constructive element that at the terrain level forms a surface with whose elevation into the business area and its placing underneath the structures a bond in the complex is created, as well as a recognizable urban matrix. The middle part of the land lot is reserved for a “park”, an unbuilt surface with greenery, free for practising of all kinds of leisure time activities.

Narrow, elongated verticals especially stand out in the organization of apartments; they are the generator of the desired quality. The limited footprint of high-rise buildings enables a two-sided orientation, not only of apartments, but also of particular rooms, which shifts the scale and provides an additional dimension to living areas, while the orientation becomes a matter of choice – in the morning, afternoon or evening.

    Dear Sumit
    Its nice to see a builder appreciating built form and architecture rather than thick FAR statements.
    But i would like to know your views for the VASTU fed architecture which is a general case in any buildings(i really mean it ,from personal experience in hospitals,residential,even refurbishments and in retrofit,interiors you name it) being promoted by most builders.
    The big branded builders are a big farce in the scenario coz they don’t give vastu,, but neither have architectural taste and aesthetics.
    What ever the scene might be, we are losing a fair bit of urban aesthetics to tune in these needs.
    What are your opinion as a Builder on this scenario.
