Terasa 153

November, 2013


Sculptural design
Teresa 153 has won recognition at the World Architecture Festival 2012. For this project, the organic patterns of the roofs of the old town of Budva, a 600 year old town close to the site, were studied in detail and then dematerialised to create an organic pattern imbibing the inorganic character of historic development in the seemingly random stacked apartments and large balcony spaces in front of each room.

The Teresa 153 is designed in response to Montenegro´s climate and exhibits an individual identity with 53 apartments, thereby creating a sculptural presence while being contextual and sustainable at the same time.
