N1 Housing

With first of two realized residential buildings in Nemanjina Street in Kragujevac (Serbia), called N1 Housing (2016), architectural duo Simovic tried to start thinking differently about residential architecture in their hometown.
As the reality of urban context in one of typical small towns of the former SFRY is that single-family buildings are replaced by multi-family buildings, the street as an urban element is left to the sensibility and so-called rationality of its new builders.
By stating this, architect declared that the context is dead. The endless syncope of transitional and traditional architecture could only be negated.
