S+V Awarded Competiton Proposal for Maremonti Turist Resort in Čajn

Sadar+Vuga has been invited to participate in a competition to design a new resort on the Montenegrin coast that will transform small tourist place Čanj in a new modern chic location.

All contents in the project are carefully designed and distributed, bearing in mind the climatic and topographic characteristics of the site. The Maremonti resort complex also consists of several micro ambients that create the impression of compact and harmonious, and at the same time very distinctive units. It is precisely the diversity of the ambiance that gives character to this settlement – the moderation and shade of the Mediterranean forest on the one hand, and on the other hand the attractiveness of contemporary and diverse program.

Introducing … the Residential building ELIPSE

Publishing for the first time the new residential building arising in the near future just outside the Ljubljana city center, under Ljubljana castle and Golovec hill. Its elliptical shape and dual character is the answer to the spatial characteristics of the location – on the north the building is closing with inside loggias that provide more privacy due to neighboring buildings, on the south the building is opening with large weaving and overlapping balconies towards Golovec greenery.

Smichov Primary School

Our proposal for the new Smichov primary school is based on three starting points: first, the school interior is developed as a learning-scape, set between five deep walls with niches and cuts; second, the school has a dual character, permeable towards west and east, unveiling events in the school towards the public park and the sports ground, and porous, as a sequence of the deep walls towards south and north; third, primary school becomes a community center of the Smichov neighborhood.

Boštjan Vuga v pogovoru za Val 202 v včerajšnji oddaji K BETONSKI UTOPIJI? med drugim o inovativnosti arhitekture v bivši Jugoslaviji …

” /…/ Arhitektura 60ih in 70ih let je bila smatrana kot inovativna in priznana že v tistem času – s strani, recimo v francoskem L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui ali The Architecture Review – arhitektura, ki si upa. Ki kaže na to “mi si upamo graditi”. Torej znotraj okolja, ki je bilo kljub vsemu bolj (gradbeno) zaprto, kot je zahodno okolje, so v bistvu arhitekti za to, da so naredili določeno stvar ali določen detajl, ki bi ga, če poenostavim, na zahodu kupili v trgovini, so si ga tukaj morali izmislit. In ker so si ga morali izmislit, je ta inovativnost prešla od koncepta do najmanjšega detajla. Zato je recimo na Miheličevi stolpnici na Bavarskem dvoru ta fasada enkraten produkt. To ni nekaj, kar kupiš iz kataloga, ampak je enkraten produkt. /…/ In to inovativnost je stroka oz. takratna produkcija, ki je stala za tem, tudi podprla.”
