20160219 Kodrina Terraces

CULD, a joint venture of Juurlink [+] Geluk and JvantSpijker wins the 2nd Prize for their proposal of the neighborhood Kodrina in Prishtina in Kosovo. The plan, that was presented last week by Huub Juurlink and Cor Geluk, for approximately 6000 dwellings, supporting commercial program, kindergarten, health care center and cultural center was praised for its clear overall scheme, clever use of heights and proposal for composed building blocks. A little park as a place to be is located in the center of the high density proposal with a sharp contrast between friendly livable streets, pedestrian alleys and high-rise residential towers. The towers placed with a set back towards the streets and alleys deliver excellent views over the area. The international competition had, after a preselection out of 27 offices, a shortlist of 7 offices, that had to make a design for the neighborhood. Other offices who attended the design stage were F&M/Gabriele Pitacco, Italy; Land/BAM, Italy; Miralles Tagliabue, Spain; Tekne Spa/AML, Italy and Studio Libeskind/Melk, USA (1st Prize)
