Over the last decade we have shifted our activities mainly in the architectural services, professional consulting and real estate. We now provide services ranging from the initial basic plot evaluation up to the construction supervision. At the same time, we are consistently working on expanding our area of service, having already done several projects in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Montenegro. Through our real estate and consulting services and its management team’s dedication, Smart Project has managed to attract a number of foreign investors to invest in our home country, in various types of industries.

Designs that matter impact the core of their surroundings. They are visually appealing, comfortable, flexible, secure and efficient, a pleasure to be in. Our architecture reflects the knowledge of how people and organizations use and experience space. We work collaboratively with clients and end users to create buildings that work well on all aspects. It is our commitment to provide the most comprehensive design and analysis with a high level of engineering integrity and expertise.

Problem solving includes what we do and deliver. It is our commitment to provide the most comprehensive design, analysis, and testing services with a high level of engineering integrity and expertise. Multi-disciplinary engineering methods, innovative applications, and a highly knowledgeable and experienced group of collaborators characterize the level of our engineering expertise.

In the path of expanding our services internationally, Smart Project has built a strong partnership with “WATAD” Group in offering turnkey solutions in the Middle Eastern market. WATAD Group with headquarters in Jordan, in collaboration with Smart Project is now working on acquiring high-level projects in the region.

For us as humans it is important the atmosphere and space, how it makes us feel, experiencing and seeing things. In this direction has been always our work, thinking, studying the space and its conception of philosophy.

8 Introduction

Design Approach

At the heart of our architecture is the ability to take a new look of the design issue, experienced through the eye, tactility and livable space. Our approach aims for intensive research and analysis by blending theoretical and practical issues as symbiotic forces that shape our design. With the development of rigorous criteria and methods of analysis and execution, we combine creativity, innovation and efficiency.


Quality is always a part of our commitment and process, in delivering our designs to the clients. Quality assurance derives from the interaction with the client, understanding the demands and finding out the needs during the whole process. Our program seeks out not only solving problems, but finding also new potentials.

We are currently certified and working based on the latest international standards of ISO 9001 : 2015 in offering design services, supervising and consulting in the field of engineering.

As a part of the quality assurance program inside our team, we have in place two directors as a part of the design team hierarchy. The Quality Assurance director possesses great conceptual and creative skills and is responsible for the overall quality of the projects, which is mainly determined during the first and second phases of our services. The technical director, who has a vast experience in the construction industry, ensures the projects are technically qualified and meet the latest industry standards before we deliver them to our clients.

Smart Project constantly leverages the intellectual capital of the team. This approach means that fresh perspectives and ideas are constantly applied across sectors, leading to new concepts and solutions that define the best solutions.

10 Quality Assurance

Strategies, Approaches, Methods and Tools

Having in mind the experience and skillfulness, alongside we have built a set of qualifications that are part of the quality assurance.

In order to set a working standard, we use physical models, 3D visualizations, sketches and other tools. Physical Models serve as an analytical and decisive tool to determine many parameters, at the same time having an early physical feel of the development. That also helps solving many of the issues at an early stage, eliminating any issues at later stages of the design process.

During the design development phase we work collaboratively using BIM (Building Information Modeling), which is a digital process built on collaboration. The data is collated into a common data environment where all project information is kept up to date and shared to ensure the highest level of resource efficiency.

“ZOD” War Memorial Complex -

Location: Gllogjan, Kosovo

Services: Architecture, Interior Design, Restoration, Engineering

Size: 4,000 m²

Status: Competition 1st Prize, Under Construction

Humans are connected to certain locations and spaces, to not only see them, but for the meaning they hold and carry to them, meanings that create a mutual communication and dependency between the human and the built or natural context. The last war that happened in Kosovo, left many people and places indelibly marked. The conservation of such memories as narratives which create structures and other exponents, as well as the development of installations, memorials and new spaces to conserve, empower and carry on these memories to the future generations, was the main focus of our proposal for the “ZOD War Museum Complex”. The concept of an open museum, includes the formal type of a museum in an ensemble which flows together with the other existing structures inside a closed garden with an atrium and gallery.
















The first step of the design was to identify the existing samples in the context, and use them to generate new architectural concepts which are re-interpreted, where the function and expression blend together. In this case, design takes into consideration integrity, unification and balance of the old and new. The metaphorical interpretation of war, resistance, hospitality and unity of the family as well as the interpretation of national symbols, were the main sources of inspiration towards the creation of an architectural strategy, to initiate and develop the project of the Museum Complex. The main focus of the whole composition remains the flag pole, around which a water pond is developed and is revealed at the atrium above, while the complex is covered in a unified way by the space structure, that is materialized with ETFE.

Our proposal for the Yeonsu-gu Youth Center in South Korea was based on the present conditions of the site, where the major design influential factors are the two existing bordering buildings, where the space between these two buildings forms the key passage that leads to the youth center. The strategy was to create an ageless sustainable building with joyful silhouettes and functional spaces that are built through interpretations of vernacular patterns, where the reflection of the youthful spirit that one day will fill the physical space comes to the forefront, always.
