Juzna Dolina, Bratislava
The 120,000 sq. m project is characterised by a dramatically-staggered roofline, echoing mountainous terrain.
The scheme is formed by six mountain-shaped apartment blocks that loop around a park. The staggered roofline terraces offer residents views out across the natural landscape of wetland, meadow and grasslands.
"The built profile oscillates to create the contour of a mountain ridge with six peaks offering spectacular views.
"A stepped roofscape offers generous private terraces and slopes down to meet the central park that resembles the natural setting of an alpine valley.”
