Fletcher Priest’s Innovative Design gets Green Light in Croatia

Design: Fletcher Priest Architects

Fletcher Priest Architects has been appointed by Pluto Developments to design a new, landmark, low-energy office tower in the centre of Zagreb, Croatia.

In collaboration with local architectural firm, Agro Inženjering, the tower will be part of a new cluster of buildings on Vukovarska Street that will mark Zagreb’s new business district. Its floor-to-ceiling height glass facade will achieve spectacular panoramic views of the old town, the meandering Sava River and the mountains.

Fletcher Priest is renowned for its thoughtful approach to context and for its careful, sustainable designs and this building is no exception. The tower designs respond to the local climate and maximise energy efficiency.

At roof level there is an energy farm with five wind turbines and 450m2 of photovoltaic panels that not only generates energy throughout the year but is also a highly visible and distinguishing feature. The fully glazed double-skin façade with integral blinds mitigates glare, and a ceramic patterned fritting to the glazing protects the building from the excesses of solar heat gain.

The layout of the building has been designed to meet the specific demands of the Zagreb office market. Each floor can be divided into six tenancies with over twenty different arrangements. The specification of the office space aims to achieve a working environment with higher standards than are currently applied in the rest of Europe.

Croatia’s long-standing tradition of lively and active cafés is introduced at street level off a double height entrance hall, where a restaurant bar and café stretch along an entire face of the building. The full length of the glazed wall can be rolled away for tables to spill out in the shade of mature trees.
