Our business premises project presented on the Gradnja portal
MAIN Architects has designed a unique visual and spatial identity for the editorial centers with TV studios for Bloomberg Adria in five cities and countries of the former Yugoslavia - the regional editorial center in Belgrade and other editorial centers in Zagreb, Ljubljana, Sarajevo, and Skopje.

ENVIRONMENT AS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF RURBANISATION
Projects for family homes and holiday homes and recreational properties published in the GRENEF magazine
The environment represents the biggest potential and resource of rural areas, and openness and integration of interior and exterior space are important elements of new rural architecture. The use of large glass surfaces, terraces and covered porches, as well as outdoor kitchens and water surfaces such as pools, plays a significant role in connecting the interior and exterior space. To read more about the use of these elements in our projects of family homes and vacation homes, please see the article "Rurbanizacija i nova ruralnost" on pages 88-94 of issue 42 of the magazine "Prozori+Vrata" (web edition), where our two projects are presented - a holiday home for recreation and celebration in Cerevic between the Danube river and Fruska Gora, and a family house in Koracica, Mladenovac.
