High density rooted in history

Architecture, Landscape, Masterplanning, Parking, Public Space, Shopping, Prishtina, Kosovo

The Prishtina Terraces masterplan design creates a city with a human scale and livable streets, even with a dense program of over 6000 dwellings. The plan incorporates the genus loci of the plot (heights) and city (typologies). It combines unique curved lush streets with a radial pedestrian system of alleys. Along the structural lines we introduce a sophisticated and contrasting system of town houses and towers, allowing for a broad variety of housing typologies such a family housing, apartments and small companies. The heart of the plan is formed by a lush green park, the place to be and meet. Along this park and the three main streets, the neighborhood has a vibrant life with terraces in the north and a small shopping street in the south.
