Drina Hydroelectric Plant Administrative Building
Visegrad, Bosnia and Herzegovina

This three-storey building was originally planned for the protected area near the Old Bridge in Visegrad, designed by Mimar Sinan, which served as inspiration for this contemporary structure while its location was moved to a new downtown area along the Rzav river. It is organised through two sections with a hall in between. The hall is an open area through the entire height of the building, which reveals its structure, orientation and functioning. This hall is visible from the outside, because it extends to the exterior, where there is a small covered square connecting two main squares of the new downtown, and a bridge towards the old town and the right bank of the river. The new building was designed according to the spirit and sensibility of the traditional national architecture by employing local stone and wood.
