Park of Princes

CroatiaCroatiaCompany Name: Biškić Gradnja d.o.o.

Project description

Park of Princes is guided by the vision of creating exceptional projects of the highest level of quality and architectural value, based on ecological awareness and complex technical solutions.

Inside the characteristic Zagreb block, there are buildings with different ground plans and height, surrounded by a park, whose volumes interact with the block’s greenery. Several typologies are combined: housing, business premises, and an urban park. The quality of the block structure in the center of the city, which inspired the project, enables quality urban living, a unique lifestyle, and cultural opportunities within a high urban density.

The exceptional amount of greenery that surrounds residential and commercial spaces, both in the environment and on all floors in the form of a vertical park, provides a unique feeling of living and is the main feature of this project.

Owner’s testimonial
VMD Model
In addition to increasing the value of the natural environment, the urban heat island effect, noise and CO2 emissions are reduced. Our wish was to create a green oasis, not only for the residents but also for Zagreb citizens. The vision of the project is a new park in the city, not a new neighborhood. The main motive is something new, green, in line with green construction and sustainable construction.
Architect’s testimonial
The basic idea of the new block is the pedestrian connection of two streets, clear visibility and access to the city and the block, the creation of a new large green area – an urban park inside the block. The introduction of the park into the interior raises the quality of housing not only for the residents within the block, but also for the surrounding buildings.
The project includes several different housing typologies.

It was challenging to follow the ideas and visions of architects and investors but with our multi-branding solutions and materials, we successfully applicated and created the environment following their technical requirements and aesthetics.
I am very proud of this fine-tuned project.
