Article source: BetimZeqiri + BekirAdemi

The house is situated near the historic district of the Municipality of Chair in theCity of Skopje, between the Old Bazaar and Skopje’sFortress. It isone of four houses in a row,situated in an intense urban context. The house was built in the 60s of the last century,with modest and clear modernistic appearance. Unfortunately, it was in a devastated condition. The four houses were built all at once, with a common constructive system,which meant that any physical intervention was extremely complicated. However, with carefullyassorted methods, it was possible to reanimate the house without causing any damage for the neighbors.
