Urban Master Plan and Piazza Queens Beach
old world charm
Two hills comprise this beautiful site in Montenegro touching Queen´s beach towards the south. The old towns of Montenegro including Kotor and Budva were studied before facilitating the project. These old towns have an organic layout with narrow spaces opening into larger piazza spaces in various parts. They were planned centuries ago and they still retain a charm and character that the newer structures do not have. The buildings we created have twisted staircases interspersed with open spaces and integrated with natural contours on the sides. Each apartment opens into a large terrace overlooking the sea. The villas are positioned on existing slopes so that each of them can enjoy uninterrupted views of the ocean.
Large car parking spaces are provided along side a terminal for electric cars, which are the only vehicles which will be allowed inside the 100 acre development, ensuring a pollution free environment.
