Ksenija Residences, Porto Montenegro
The project site holds a key position in the local town context, bridging the gap between the existing town of Tivat and the new public realm of the Porto Montenegro masterplan. The site acts as a gateway from the town into the marina site, and key to its success is the pedestrian permeability through the site at ground level, which has been influenced by the old town squares of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A series of carefully considered points of interest serve as landmark links to aid wayfinding, with more subtle sensory clues such as scented jasmine streetscapes, the sound of fountain jet water and framed vistas to the adjacent Boka bay. The use of local stone and native vegetation add a further recognisable visual context and reference to the materials found within the local area. The elevated pool deck and garden terrace afford stunning views across the bay and create privacy for the residents.
