WE STUDIED THE ORGANIC PATTERNS OF THE ROOFS OF THE OLD TOWN OF BUDVA (A 600 YEAR OLD TOWN CLOSE TO THE SITE) AND THEN DEMATERIALIZED THEM TO CREATE AN ORGANIC PATTERN. THIS PATTERN GAVE RISE TO A SERIES OF UNEQUAL TRAPEZOIDS WHICH IS TRANSLATED INTO MODULES THAT ARE VERTICALLY STACKED TO CREATE THE EVENTUAL FORM OF THE BUILDING.

THE DESIGN IMBIBES THE INORGANIC CHARACTER OF HISTORIC DEVELOPMENT IN THE SEEMINGLY RANDOM STACKED APARTMENTS & THE VARYING ANGLES IN THE BALCONIES ALLUDE TO THE VARIATION OF ANGULAR ROOFS IN THE OLDER TRADITIONAL DEVELOPMENTS.THE DESIGN CREATES A SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT MODEL REDUCING THE HEAT GAIN INTO THE APARTMENTS BY THE DEEP BALCONY OVERHANGS. ANGULARLY SPLAYED BALCONY SPACES, IN BOTH THE VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL PLANES, FRONT EACH ROOM CREATING A TRANSITORY SPACE BETWEEN THE INSIDE AND THE OUTSIDE.
EACH BALCONY IS PARTIALLY COVERED AND PARTIALLY OPEN TO SKY. THIS ALLOWS THE USER TO SIT IN THE OPEN OR IN SHELTERED SPACE DEPENDING UPON THE WEATHER.THE VARIED SITE LEVELS HAVE BEEN USED TO ADVANTAGE. THE RETAIL SPACES ARE ENTERED AT THE LOWER LEVEL ALONG THE MAIN ROAD WHILE THE APARTMENT LOBBY IS ENTERED AT A HIGHER LEVEL ALONG THE SIDE ROAD.
