Amazing!
Usually what we see on the news about Kosovo is war.
We see now that it's not really like we think it is...
Great to know!
Congratulations for this beauty!

Architect 4M Group reveals ENK Hotel green designs

03.10.08

Architect 4M Group revealed its green designs for the ENK Hotel in Kosovo last week as part of a three-day programme of debates on sustainability called Green Sky Studios.

Twenty-five London architecture practices took part. The ENK Hotel is being developed by ENK Invest Group and is oriented to minimise solar gain. It also features a shading system.

A computer designed my windows
9 October, 2008

By Michael Willoughby



Mixed use scheme in Kosovo maps and mitigates solar gain throughout the year

Computer-generated architecture might conjure up images of Gehry and Zaha-type schemes of dubious sustainability credentials.

But digital technology has helped the façade of this mixed use scheme in Prishtina, Kosovo, to combat solar gain while maintaining aesthetic integrity.

Southwark-based 4M Group’s design implements a ‘self shading mechanism’ whereby south facing panels are extruded to cast shadows or, north facing, pushed outwards to let the light in.

In designing the façade, the computer programme analysed the angle that the sun would hit the building during the spring and autumn equinoxes.







Director, Përparim Rama, said that balancing the aesthetic and practical aspects of the building frontage was important. “The façade studies take as an underlying assumption that [they] are interfaces between building interiors and their environment. As such, they have to negotiate internal with external conditions while establishing a desired identity.”

To create the pattern, the programme took into account the overshadowing from neighbouring masses and each 1,100mm square panel received a composite value - direct light and overshadowing. This was mitigated by the function of the specific floor the panel sits on. Each function also included the amount of privacy required in each case.The panels are being constructed from various materials including textured glass and wooden slats.







ENK Invest, Kosovo are funding the project. The hotel received planning in April and is currently under construction.

Location of the ENK Complex, and other highrise/infrastructural projects in the nearby-area..

All the projects in this map are U/C, with the exception of WTC Prishtina which may be relocated somewhere else soon, because the highway junction is going to occupy a part of its landplot and cause some changes in the regulation plan for the nearby area.

Construction photo from www.enkinvestgroup.com

Looks like they've started with the foundation works.
First phase of the foundation works will be carried out by Albanian company "Soal", while second phase will be carried out by Croatian "Konstruktor" :
