In such unattractive neighborhood, this kindergarten is shaped as enclosed and introverted insula, surrounded with soaring stone walls. Inside of this small town-kindergarten, units-houses are combined with open gardens, placed next to pedestrian communications.
Due to the rather small area of kindergartens parcel, units for the smallest kids, together with belonged roof terraces – playgrounds, are located on the first floor of the building. Kindergarten is defined by halls – kale (local name for small streets characteristic for historical centers of Dalmatian towns), aiming upwards or downwards, regarding the topography of the site.
Eastern and western entrances to the kindergarten are to be used by children, employees and guests, service entrance is on the north, and southern gates open the kindergarten towards the small, sunny oriented playground. In the centre of the kindergarten there is a small square – piazza, which is supposed to serve as location for manifestations, events and celebrations.
Besides 7 units for older children, and 4, previously mentioned, units for youngsters, kindergarten also embeds hall for sports, recreation and dance classes. Plan rea of the kindergarten is 1725 square meters, with gross area of 2379 m².

New House on Vis island
This residential property project is dealing with questions regarding the context of the site boundary, envisioned on the plot that is read as a ‘’void ‘’, blank space- deception is that context is non-existent. The assignment was to design a house for a temporary family retreat on a site without infrastructure, at the same time completely satisfying the needs of the user.
