Juzna Dolina, Bratislava


In May 2017, Danish architecture studio EFFEKT revealed designs for a housing development for Bratislava, Slovakia.

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.


EFFEKT said:

"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.”
