Terra plant d.o.o.
It is located directly next to the Sava embankment, south of the famous ‘triad’ of residential towers of architect Slavko Jelinek, and east of the residential lamella of architect Milan Žerjavić. This building represents an effort to give the phenomenon of living the importance it deserves, both at the level of the neighbourhood and at the level of the building and apartment, and to treat it through the prism of the joy of living. It contains 119 apartments, five shops and a local community space. The active roof is designed as an artificial landscape – the terrain that the building occupies in the ground zone is compensated. The outer belt consists of the gardens of the apartments on the floor below them, and the inner belt, common recreational facilities – a park and a small square open to all residents of the settlement. The flexibility of the apartments is imperative, so the building is designed as a neutral compliant frame. Most of the apartments were changed in plan during construction according to the requirements of the tenants as shown in the attached drawings. A novelty in multi-family architecture is underground probes with which the temperature of the soil is used for energy savings. Surface heating and cooling achieved living comfort.
