ANARCH – Klan KOSOVA Television, 2014



ai???Klan KOSOVA Televisionai??? is one of the first examples of industrial building transformation in Kosovo (it was one a manufacturing plant for shock absorbers). It is seen as a model on raising people s awareness in recycling and reusing materials.

The architectural concepts generated from reused and recycled materials consist of:

  1. The reuse of building elements such as: chandeliers, radiators, valve handles and pipes originally used as manufacturing infrastructure. Desk holders and desk electricity are in the original position; pipes are also reused to make in-house designed radiators and are in general used as electricity s and IT s infrastructure.
  2. The reuse of solid waste: bricks from the ruins of houses burned during the war in Kosovo were utilised; railway sleepers were recycled for the fa ade; an envelope made out of recycled boards, assembled in a natural parametric composition of different dimensions, create movement on the fa ade, through light and shadow.

These characteristics bring a dynamic design to architecture, representing an embodiment between the concepts of environmental and spiritual sustainability.
