The basic concept is to give the utilitarian form a monumental character. Definition of public space is achieved entirely through the build structure, which at the same time had to be recognized as a memorial building. These two archetype elements would be impossible to accomplish without the use of the internet (we can say thank you, Google!).

This spatial intervention is public urban object; it is construction with tactile qualities, and also symbolic object. Memorial Bridge is conceived as an extremely thin board spanned over the canal in a characteristic L-shape.

Hotel Lone Croatia
The interiors and the furniture were designed for the hotel in order to achieve a recognizable identity. The Y shaped ground plan enabled a rational and functional organizational scheme; quality views from all rooms and the grouping of public facilities around a vertical lobby that connects common spaces on all levels, creating a central volume of impressive height.

House K Zagreb
Family house K is situated on a large residential plot on a moderate eastern-facing slope at the edge of a forest near the base of Sljeme hill. By placing the object next to the street in the north-western corner of the plot, preference was given to a beautiful forest view; the uneven terrain was used as a means of developing the object’s volume.
