Commercial center, Skaljari, Kotor, Montenegro, Yugoslavia, 2000 - Urban design
Old industrial site near the old town Kotor. The goals of the project are to define and design a new commercial area in (or instead of) abandoned industrial "Rivijera" site, and renewal of the old residential area. As the whole Kotor Bay, location is listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Site.
First phase of the project were analyzes of space capacity, study of heritage protection, especially industrial archeology aspect, and recognition of public and private open spaces. After the first presentation of ideas, the team proposed the strategies and the design for the site development.
The priorities of the project were: to remain and maintain heritage, hidden in this neglected area, to open possible locations for commercials and business, and define limits for further development.
Proposed strategy for renewal was urban recycling for two old industrial complexes.
