The King’s House opens to public

The renovation of the King’s House focuses on the architectural qualities of the 1930ies aristocratic mansion. The mansion character, significantly altered in 1970ies has evolved into a conglomerate of the additions that took away authentic qualities of the building, making it less monumental, oddly proportioned and at points unfunctional. The renovation strips down the altered state of the house to its bare essentials. Further on the project relies on the fundamentals neglected over the years – the construction grid of the roof, the concrete vaulting, rich stucco and frescoes.

 

Miami stairs design

The office received a commission to design a staircase in a villa located in Miami Indians Creek Island. The pattern design that encloses the stairs is inspired by the typical Miami Art Deco aesthetics. At the same time, the pattern provides the stairs structural frame. The 2D – 3D idea of the villa signature pattern is translated to 3D design for the stairs. The staircase architecture appears not only as a utilitarian element which connects two levels within the house but as the playful sculpture that fragments the movements of the house inhabitants.

SADAR+VUGA and ARTECH proposal for Urania Hotel Resort won the invited competition

SADAR+VUGA and local partner Artech d.o.o have been awarded the first prize for the Urania Hotel Resort in Baška Voda, Croatia.

The design of the contemporary Mediterranean hotel is founded on the spacious exterior ambiances, united under the pergola to frame unique site flora and specific views. A wander around the site will reveal the sequence of distinct atmospheres that define the new character by exposing existing – pine wood shade and scent, the rough mountain Biokovo, the infinity of the sea horizon.
