The goal of this project was to study the issue of Desakota and try to find a suitable formula for its development. The key factors of our project were the inhabitants low education level and the diffused heavy manual labor, having low economic profitability. We have developed the project of an agricultural research center, which includes various levels of educational programs for the population and visitors of the village. The center is a modular linear park, based on the village internal morphology and can be replicated in other regions. Architectural choices are based on a rethinking of the classic architecture of Indonesia, using the traditional methods of lighting, ventilation, air conditioning.

Master Thesis project: DesaKota development

an inhabited place of greater size, population, or importance than a town or village

Year: 2017 Studio: Architectural Design in Developing countries

a settlement usually larger than a hamlet and smaller than a town

These regions were previously characterized by dense populations engaged in agriculture, generally but not exclusively dominated by wetrice.� - Terry McGee 1990

The project site of Theater is placed in the North part of the Museum Island in its contemporary part. Our concept is based on the overlapping of the historical and existing road system. The central part of the theater is rotated according to its envelope part inside which placed the related functions as restaurant and cafe, exhibition etc. The theater building is part of the landscape and includes an outdoor observation deck. The new pedestrian bridge, which corresponds to historical roads, goes through the entire territory of the island. It unites all district with core idea of relation between past and present.

The proposal include three parts. First one is a Funicular station, to provide an access to the park from the main road. The front part of the building is based inside the forest space and shape of pillars imitate the tree trunks. The Cable road is connected with new constructed Railway station on the bottom part of the site, which shape is linked with top construction. Finally the third is a wedding chapel, which is placed in the forest and has the direct connection with the sea. Transparency was the core motive in all three objects in order to save the relation with nature and all of them are equipped with view terraces.

From our point of view, a house on a tree is something natural, primitive, not contradiction to nature itself. The idea is that the house would resemble a group of trees with its silhouette, and the roof covering it should remind a spreading crown. We created three types of small houses for different kind of customers (from lonely traveller and couples to small groups of 3-4 people). The inner space of houses is very small but it includes everything necessary for comfortable staying. The hotel complex creates a sense of relaxation in a remote woodland surrounded by wild nature, but in a friendly environment.

The main idea of the project is aimed at the possibility of creating an object, a SPA-complex, as a modern leisure center, while a certain universality of the object should allow preserving the spirit of the modernity in the future. Simple geometric shapes and lines are designed to create a volumetric and fluxible spatial dynamics of modern interiors. The play of light, glass and water is designed to gently contrast and emphasize the expressive bends of the walls.

I tried to apply more architectural techniques than just decorative ones, within this project. I also wanted to get away from the traditional linear planning system inherent in this kind of functions. The intricate shapes, which hanging from the ceiling, are inspired by shape of flowers. They create the complex system of the interlacing lighting plafond. There are three types of these constructions inside the project: tv-station in reception zone, manicure zone and workplace for hairdresser.

The task was to create the café in ground level and the restaurant above it within one theme but with different character. The spaces should have a vertical connection. I took my inspiration in graphics of Maurits Escher. My goal was to achieve the complexity of the restaurant space, some delusiveness and at the same time geometricity of volume by usage of screens and platforms, mirrors and lighting. The café, on the other hand, is dedicated to the theme of nature and the process of turning a caterpillar into a light butterfly. A massive spiral staircase, which inside is decorated with mirrors and carries customers from one world to another, connects the spaces.

This kiosk is designed to sell aromatic wax for home and lamps for its use. In this project we wanted to use the bright saturated colors of the main product, so that it itself determines the character of the interior. The main structure of shelves has shape of house and it is made from metal profile. Its pattern is inspired by Pit Mondrian art pieces. The roof of the house is created by the guiding bars and filled by suspended color elements resembling particles of the product being sold.

The project of clothing boutique was created as part of Kerston knitted-goods factory reconstruction proposal. The main motive of this interior is the theme of the discovery of a new world and in relation to the fashion industry, it reveals itself in the form of a zipper. It opens a flat surface of walls where are student works placed. Interior is equipped with free shape shelves-ribbons. They, as other interior elements, try to stand against the strict linear structure of the building.

The «layer» formed by the spaces between the residential buildings required a series of actions to regain adequate comfort conditions, to enhance the soft mobility and to create new opportunities for meeting and sharing for the inhabitants of the neighborhood. According to a principle of urban acupuncture, the project focused on some sample areas: ■ ■ along the diversion channel a system of pedestrian and cycle paths was created with new seats and lighting devices connected to sporting activities
