Single family housing type Villa at the suburbs of Prishtina, near national and city park of Germia, Kosovo.
The land plot is 5000 m², with the hill top altitude of 700m asl. The building gross size 1400 m²,developed on 3 levels: basement, ground (700m above sea level) and first.
The architecture of the building is fragmented into smaller volumes to mimic the surroundings in forms and shapes of the existing buildings and their size.
The traditional town house of Prishtina from the Ottoman era is reformulated considering the main functional groups of the house to be connected with a free form corridor that functions as a spinal cord of the whole complex. White render façades , combined with wooden windows and doors with sun blinds, are clear intentions to save the concept of “traditionl” and at the same time to provide a contemporary interpretation of regional architecture of Kosovo and the Balkans.
