The purpose of the proposal is to create a Touristic centre on the Klekovaca Mountain which will offer the facilities for both winter and summer mountain breaks. The proposal aim is to maintain to the maximum the natural environment as well as to highlight its beauty. The proposal is also going to reflect the mixture of traditional urban grids with contemporary quiet buildings which have as an aim to create a homely environment for the visitor, and to accomplish synergy of the visual quality of the landscape, open spaces and architecture.

Our proposal is an experimental hybrid between urbanism and landscape design: City and Nature overlapped in the simultaneous coexistence of a recreational open landscape of urban stripes superimposed on an urban neighborhood of walkable streets, plazas and Parks.

The concept of the propasal reflects the most striking features of the neighboring territories, allowing to combine the characteristic elements of local architecture with existng lanscape, thus creating a hybrid landscape and the connection between the urban structure and nature.

We propose a design contextually sensitive in order to integrate local cultures (traditional urban grid) and nature and create new artistic value on all spatial levels and relations. Taking on account the spatial and visual quality of integration of the  urban zone of the Tourist Centre into the environment, quality of harmonisation between different zone units within the Complex, and visual quality of individual spaces and facilities.

The project is planned to respect the key values of the context, especially of untouched nature, and to create an innovative and advanced model of organization and operation of a tourist resort, and also to emphasize visual qualities of architecture, open public spaces and landscapes.

The proposed Touristic complex includes a ring and different separated stripes which consist of series of different shaped buildings integrated in an urban grid related to the traditional towns of the area. The design result is like a small city´s urban grid housed inside abstract stripes creating a landmark villa.

The complex is organized along a circular building of retail, entertainment and facility programs. Over the ring building bicycles, peatons and sikiers, among and electric public transport bring visitors quickly around. The vast accessible roof features gentle sloping surface allowing visitors to experience the panoramic views of the Mountain landscape.

The proposal is an urban form combining dense city inside the stripes with open landscape and will become a touristic gathering point for the surrounding cities and countries.  Like a city that is carved and sculpted into the landscape, the entire facility is linked by an accessible ring with a green roof which includes recreational areas and facilities.
