Construction of Sports Hall Extension has officially started
While the construction of the SOAG building, Faculty Of Social Work is nearly finished, the second out of three projects in the context of the masterplan for the Clean Marsen campus has officially begun.
The new sports hall will become a northern gate to the campus. The project takes advantage of the existing structure: what is there already should be reused and adapted with minimum interventions.

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.
The Supreme Court and School of Magistrates is finally in progress
After winning the International competition in 2015 the project is finally in progress – Sadar+Vuga and the local partners PRG*B R have been awarded first prize in 2015 for the new Headquarters for the Supreme Court and School of Magistrates in Tirana, Albania. The proposal converts an existing 3.000 m2 historic building to be used for judicial offices and administration, a new addition of four pavilion-like courtrooms in the nature, and the education block for the School of Magistrates. Together these three structures will become mechanisms of justice, efficiency and transparency.

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.
