Urban Development Projects

.01 Central Axis Masterplan

Skanderbeg Square, named for Albania's national hero, would be decorated with trees and flowers. The well-known Ethem Bej mosque would be reinforced, and the central train station would be relocated. The river Lana, which runs through the capital, would be given a makeover, and underground parking would be added to relieve urban congestion. The winning proposal aims to preserve Tirana's historical qualities, blending them with contemporary standards.









.02 Skanderbeg Square Redevelopment

The openness of a very clear and simple form will bring to the fore immaterial qualities, like light and shadow, sounds, a gust of wind… It will trigger the citizens to refocus, realizing that they are in the middle of the city, but at the same time in a different place.
The center is stressed as a void in the chaos of the city, providing mental and physical space for its citizens. The square enables the people of Tirana to retract from their city in the heart of it, offering a space to look back to the city and, as a consequence, allowing them to live in it.





.03 "C" Section (Northern Lake Area)

The project foresees the regeneration of a 20ha site on the north shore of the lake by creating a dense urban neighborhood liberating space for a park, recreational facilities, new public spaces and ecologic interventions.





The cantilevered and leaning buildings allow for a great variety of apartment types, shopping and offices and ‘echo’ the Tirana typology. The stacked and twisted volumes create spectacular public spaces and provide dramatic vistas. Clad in local stones the buildings turn into a series of ‘rocks’, the ‘Tirana Rocks’.

.04 Lake Residential District



Program : Masterplan and Design of a new residential district and public buildings:Theatre,Opera House, Congress Hall, Auditorium, Shools, Sport and Leasure buidngs, Housing, Offices, Retals, Fair, Public Park area, Parking
Location : Tirana, Albania
Client : Gener 2 Shpk
Assignment : Masterplan and design project
Schedule : February 2008
Status : Preliminary Design
Lot Area : 85.000 sqm
Built Area : 210.000 sqm
Consultants : Alberto Greti, Noccolò Cau, Nicola Saraceno_Render: Modostudio











.05 Mirror Twins Masterplan

The general concept of the master plan is based on the idea of the continuation of the Tirana city axis as a green axis. The main axis of Tirana changes its character after the central station. It turns from an urban boulevard into a green area that connects the city with its green surrounding. The so-called station park and the area along the Tirana River form together the new local recreation area of Tirana. By establishing several areas with different spatial and functional focus, the station park offers a variety of spaces and a diversity of characters.









.05 Park City

This project is located in the western outskirts of Tirana, an area under heavy development in recent years due to its prime location close to the main entrance door to Albania's Capital.












With a total of approx. 400.000 sqm floor built area it will house about 7.000 inhabitants. It stretches between two large parks, whose conceptual design was also part of the design brief: Runway Park, the 1.1 km former landing strip, and Lana Park, an extension of the city's main green axis.
The design proposes an urban layout that forms a hinge between these two parks, makes them accessible and connects them while strenghtening the distinctively different character of both. The urban structure is a combination of three typologies, offering a broad variation of lifestyles opposed to the prevelant development paradigm of 9 floor broken perimeter blocks in downtown Tirana.

.06 Dinamo Park

The Masterplan for a former sports-area bordering the central district of Tirana as well as a large recreational zone and another sports-complex attempts to establish a link between these three programs isolated by a dike and junk yards. The enormous economic pressure is answered with a previously tested typology of full coverage commercial plinth with a tower and in this case an intersecting perimeter block. The towers are tapered and rotated to strengthen their coherent identity as a set, even if developed by different clients.









.07 La Serre Residential Block



Program : Design project of a new residential district and public buildings
Location : Tirana, Albania
Client : Kika Construction S.h.pk
Assignment : Architecture and Structure: Preliminary, scheme and detail design, art direction
Schedule : 2005-2007
Status : Under construction
Lot Area : 10.180 mq
Built Area : 60.257 mq
Total Cost : 19.270.000 euro
Consultants : Structural Engineering _eng. Arben Dervishaj, eng Ervin Paci, Studio associato Labores
Technical Engineering_eng. Sulejman Xhelepi, eng. Enkelejda Patozi, eng. Ylber Gjinali, eng. Bledar Tole













.08 Noka Bllok

The project area presents itself as a potentially coherent block situated between Duresit Boulevard and Kavajes Boulevard. The building proposal emphasizes this quality of coherence, combining a strong building image with a series of informal public spaces.



For the project area, the master plan foresees a ‘cut-up version’ of the Parisian block typology. This results in seemingly freestanding objects bordering the streets, cut up by unspecified public space. Our proposal for the NOKA BLLOK aims to update and improve some of the master plan’s basic criteria.



Our first action is to turn the Parisian typology inside-out, so that the internal public space is exteriorized into a series of informal spaces. The typical Parisian courtyard is opened up onto the streets, allowing for differences in experience and interaction. The outcome is a spontaneous organic morphology, an airy landscape with an increased variation of orientation and views.





The basic concept for the NOKA BLLOK is to collect strong individual buildings into one continuous block. Each building can host a specific program. Our proposal is based on a central core building (offices) surrounded by smaller perimeter buildings (housing/offices). The shopping activity will benefit from the 5 differentiated public areas surrounding the ground floor. These small gardens/plazas can act as exterior extensions of the commercial program.

.09 Filanto Residential Block

A total of 25 buildings from 7-13 levels to be constructed near the old Partizani Factory.
Surface area: 160,000 m2







.09 Festival City

Highrises

.01 Eyes of Tirana

Eyes of Tirana consists of three building parts holding flats, offices and shops totalling 48,000 m2 with a 26-storeyed tower as landmark. Situated in the city centre the building will be the first visible result of a large-scale ambitious masterplan for Tirana.



The building introduces a series of vertical oases in the building, which – apart from connecting the various functions – bring focus to the life of the building. In the green atriums you will find swimming pools, not only for recreational purposes, but also as part of the earthquake precautions.



In the Albanian summer the big atriums will be cool and pleasant and will appear like ”eyes” in the tower overlooking Tirana with the high mountains to the east and the dry plain to the south.

The project is based on sustainable solutions with focus on natural ventilation, solar energy and other energy-saving measures.

.02 4-ever Green Tower


The 85 metre tall building has a complex, varied functional programme: a six level underground parking lot, four levels of commercial space, seven levels of offices, and apartments on the top eight floors as well as a luxury hotel in a panoramic position at the very top of the tower.
Archea Associati's project, entitled "4 ever green", was chosen above the others for the way it manages to fit the tower into its urban context and create public spaces by narrowing the base of the building.







.03 TID Business center



The tower is part of the ambitious new master plan for the city, which converges around ten towers. The main program of the tower consists of office and housing program. Shopping and restaurant facilities are located in the base and at the top of the building.



.04 Train Station Towers

In collaboration with Architekten Cie, BaksvanWengerden Architecten designed two towers for the new station area in Tirana, Albania. Both towers contain a maximum mix of offices, hotel rooms and apartments.

Looking at these very impressive projects, it seems like Tirana will become a European masterpiece of urban development and quality of architecture. I visited the city in June and I have to say that up until the moment not much has been realised of the interesting plans...nevertheless I hope that this will change in the future - Tirana is a very impressive vibrant young city, if innovative architecture will be added, it will become just awesome!!

Some of those buildings are under construction and other hopefully will start soon! These are plans for a modern urban architecture, and aren't finished yet. But as I said, some of those buildings are under construction now, for example the Orthodox Church, the Millenium Center, the American Business Center, La Serre Residential Block and some others!

International Competition for the Priority Zone “E”


Proposals:

BLK Architects





Design International




Favre & Guth



The jury unanimously decided that none of the proposals gave a satisfying answer to deal with the challenges that presents this zone so in conclusion it chose not to announce a winner but instead sent the City Hall authorities a document of recommendations to continue with this process by integrating new interesting elements to the proposed ideas by eliminating the existing flaws in each proposal and thus trying to achieve a more convincing and final solution.

In the coming weeks, Tirana's Grand Park will undergo a major renovation in rehabilitating its current infrastructure.
A total of 2600 new trees will be planted as well as an additional installment of 70 light polls.
New road segments will be built and the existing ones will be repaved to accomodate the pedestrians and cyclists that use the park daily.
