MIXED USE HEINZELOVA, ZAGREB

is a public competition for a residential building and business premises in Heinzelova Street.

CONTEXT

This urban and aggressive space for the future business-residential building is inspiring in itself. This location requires a detailed analysis and a subtle approach in planning and construction.

CONCEPT

In striving for a shape that would define and represent the urban part between the streets of Heinzelova-Banjavčićeva-Zavrtnica-Branimirova, we provide a solution which will fulfill the competition conditions.

Relief blocks create useful spaces and surfaces underneath them, inside them and above them. The roof of the residential block serves as a space for relaxation and recreation. Each block is a two-floor space with 4.5 m gross height, which includes suspended ceilings and floor layers. Relief blocks are covered in only one material that serves as the final layer: the net provides protection from the surrounding environment and the sun and gives an aesthetic aspect.

The form is dynamic, optimistic, predominantly horizontal, retracted and indented – and gives a contemporary approach to public space.

The building is a design accent, affirming the point in space.

CURIOSITIES

Chaotic urban rules laid down for this project are a typical example of a chaotic general urban plan for Zagreb, and sometimes the greatest challenge is to generate interesting architecture within this plan.
