BADEL BLOCK ZAGREB
GENERAL URBAN CONCEPT
Badel Block is a significant and visually exposed location set in the border of Zagreb lower city. The site, located between Vlaska and Subiceva road, is closer to tram terminal in Kvaternikov TRG and directly involved to the open market and to the green area of TRG Bartola Kasica and constitutes today a gap, a big void in old block housing.
The new BADEL BLOCK enhances its position within the city of Zagreb, becoming a multitask area who mixes fun, culture, shopping and outdoor activities in a new green landscape. Badel Block will be a new gravity center in the Lower City (Donji Grad) in Zagreb, changing its nature of inaccessible working block in an accessible one; a big open green space is located in the central area nearby the distillery factory, who becomes the pulsing heart.
The shape is created mixing the characteristic of a block with a tower: horizontal mass building connected with a green public court with the vertical density of a tower; the new buildings are three peaks on Zagreb skyline, easily connected with the hystorical steeples of the town, a super landmark for Donji Grad
