Buildings in Croatia

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Croatian Buildings. We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Croatia. The focus is on contemporary Croatian buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 2 pages of Croatian Architecture selections.

Spaladium Centar
Spaladium Centar consists of a handball arena for 12,000 spectators, a wellness center, a sky bar and an exclusive restaurant on the top floor overlooking the entire city, its surroundings and the islands of the Split archipelago. There are 1,500 garage parking places. The shopping center guarantees visits even when the handball arena is not in use. The arena itself is a multi-purpose hall. In addition to handball, the arena will be used for basketball, tennis, volleyball, boxing, motocross, and will also be a venue for trade fairs, conventions, exhibitions and concerts.

New kindergarten, on the island of Krk in Croatia, is located on northeastern border of the town, amongst mostly touristic apartments and shopping malls. In such unattractive neighborhood, this kindergarten is shaped as enclosed and introverted insula, surrounded with soaring stone walls.

Riva Split – Croatian waterfront design
The waterfront is a focal point of community activity where the city meets the sea. 250 meters long and 55 meters wide, it is also the main public square, the space for all kinds of social events, promenade by day, parade by night, the site of sport events, religious processions, festivals, celebrations and political rallies.

Croatian building : Rijeka
One third of the sports hall’s volume is cut in the ground, and the rest of the Centre is fully fitted into the surrounding landscape. The building’s main architectural element are ribbon-like linear stripes stretching over the site in a north-south direction, functioning at the same time as an architectural design element of the object and as a zoning element which forms a public square and a link between the park on the north and school and B.
