Of immense importance is the lake that lines the area and the untouched surrounding nature.

The new project contains four different buildings and a public space in between. all of which functionally supporting the existing museum at Nemi lake near Rome.

Serbia collaboration Filip Mitrovic. What needed to be taken into consideration was the fact that the project would be devel- oped in three separate fases. The difference between facade plans would give space for bedrooms and balco- nies. Our idea was to play with cubes: by placing them on top of each other. that is the courtyard. we would create vivd facade from the street view. TIjana Jovanovic. The inner part.

Re Plug ‘n’ play 03 year fall 2011 place Sao Paolo. The building itself is a cluster of boxes. there is a game of shadows between different facades levels/ depths. The comunication is mainly organized as a shell of the building. The idea for each of them is to have their own entrance from the yard. As an outcome. The boxes went out of the initial volume in order to provide space and light for the growing subvolumes. whether on the second or third floor level.

Parametric modeling tools were exploited for the development of structural. Serbia The workshop was the result of Rhino + Grasshopper seminar in parametric studio. The aim was to develop formal strategies around primal architectural reasoning.which in this case turned into the parametric hat. a spiral line formed the outline of the hat.
