From the architect. The masses, as defined by the master plan, form the U-shaped cross section with the mass of garage, and form a united whole. “Add-on” balconies dynamize the composition and represent a spatial extension of the mass. The reflection in folded balcony surfaces provides visual alternations to the structures appearance, depending on the time of the day and weather conditions.

At the same time, different shapes of balconies signify and creates unique appearance of the single balcony, identifying particular apartment.

Yikes - this looks like a Kafka-esque complex where you never get your bearings and snipers lay in wait. Imagine when it rains how the water will flow. I have a feeling its not pretty for more than a few of the occupants.

I bet all you whiners are architecture students. Reality will hit you guys very hard some day.

INawe · December 08, 2009 08:38 AM

What reality are YOU talking about? This building is so mundane and boring I think it is safe to say that most practicing can do much better than this project. The banality kills me.

No necessarily...been there doing that. If anything, we (the whiners) are so tired of working on projects where the only thing that seems to matter any longer is a skin job. I think the whiners have a right to whine about the direction of the discourse.

"At the same time, different shapes of balconies signify and creates unique appearance of the single balcony, identifying particular apartment."

yeah, I don't need to give you the apartment number ... mines the one that starts bending to the south at 8 feet.

this is awful.

Don't worry mr, Cheap, this masterpice will can be watch at the Orodos soon ;)

Mr. Cheap · December 05, 2009

Only showing the outside is meaningless when it comes to architecture. Don't publish this kind of rubbish.

Ho la sensazione che qualcuno non sa
Molto male

Ho la sensazione che qualcuno non sa come usare i materiali!

Oh my god ! What is this?
This is what Croatia has to offer?
Nightmare in metal sheets!

pal · December 05, 2009

That's fine to see sometimes a house where the windows are over each other!

Second Rate · December 05, 2009

Great interior Shots! Ummmmm...

The used of metal in the balconies is a dimostretion of the material's knowledge of the's very good the mutable condition of the complex visual defined by the light exposition...

john avlakiotis · December 05, 2009

At first I thought this was a 3D rendering.
Sadly, it is a real building.

mARCo · December 05, 2009 03:45 AM
