Franchise Centre, Vitez

Our design goal was to present clearly on the facade all the facilities available inside. The main requirements of this commercial building - with administrative, shopping and hotel facilities - have been given fundamental guidelines defining recognisable shapes and volumes. The main volume, which is the backbone of the facility, is the shopping centre. It has been created in a big, transparent window that allows all the events inside the building to be filtered through a thin glass façade.

How does diversity of people reveal itself at work? With the same approach to the task, diversity among the people involved produces totally different results, which leads to the conclusion that our job is both dynamic and exciting.
Do you think our profession is diverse enough? In terms of the very different fields in which we can work and what we can be involved in: yes, it is diverse enough.
Who are your role models who inspire you? Everyone who has their own way of reaching the intended goal.
How have your clients and projects benefited from your involvement? If there is emotion on their faces after the work is done, I think we have achieved our mission.
