"The project proposes a design strategy that is not purely additive, but also subtractive, deemed appropriate for the over-built spatial context of our project site, Makarska. We were interested in adding new spatial qualities to the sites, but also in taking part of the excess away. The resulting open, public spaces with newly-introduced natural, as well as architectural elements, serve as a social platform and home to the city’s various ecologies, human and non-human alike."
