Thank you so much for posting photos of Porto Piccolo. This is an excellent example of traditional local architecture brought to modern day life.

Environmental attack? That was the open-air quarry. A fishermen's village like Porto Piccolo was the only way to reshape the place in an affordable way.

I agree, and even if I'm not a big fan of the architecture they chose, they restored a piece of destroyed coast from previous industrial activity and extraction.

However, it's not a fishermen's village, but a rich people's seaside resort shaped like a fishermen's village

Reclaiming land is extremely expensive, you have to pick up money from the rich's pocket in exchange of a seafront view.

Porto Piccolo as shown in #4600 seems quite Sochi-esque to me, and I'm not too happy with the destruction of natural environments/cliffs there. On the other hand, it seems like a really livable place, but it clearly needs some patina - probably hard to achieve with all that concrete and artificial instead of natural construction materials.

There's a lot of things that aren't right about this Swedish mansion as it clearly attempts to stick to classical proportions, but completely fails. A big no-no for me. If they want organic or expressionist architecture, they should clearly indicate that. See here at Weise & Treuner for some better examples in that category.

There was no natural environment before they built Porto Piccolo.
It was an artificial cave, they had been destroying that piece of coast for decades when we didn't have strict regulations on extraction of stone for building industry.

So Porto Piccolo fixed a disaster, it repaired that exhausted cave which looked pretty bad, like in the following picture. I don't really like the architecture either, but still better than leaving that huge hole on the coast

Those "cliffs" were artificial, and they were the result of extraction. This picture was taken before Porto Piccolo was started, and probably even designed! Otherwise, the coast would have been a simple slope with trees on top, like the surrounding area.

Hello guys, I'm not sure if this type of architecture could count as "Traditional Architecture Style", since this style is not common for country like Macedonia, and yet it reminds of some northern European and northern American architecture...

Anyway, this is the new residential complex "Verina" near Skopje, built in the period 2011-2014.

And one aerial shot of the complex:

^ Imho quite postmodern but modest.

Jasper90: Alright, thank you for clarifying. That makes the nature aspect better, while the criticism on architecture remains. It's not really "traditional" architecture, rather has that McMansion pastiche feeling to it. Anyway, as I said I think it looks like an okay place to spend some time off.

As far as I can see the sore in the eye in Porto Piccolo are both the villas' spread and the quarry.

One has been fixed - what about the other one?

True! Sorry about that. On the other hand, I think the precast plasters and the faux brick cladding are entirely new. I can delete the post if requested though.
