The necessity to conserve the beauty of Skadar lake came into being in 1983, when this sparsely populated site was classified a national park. This was no doubt the starting point for a double initiative to:
- both preserve the original beauty of an exceptional landscape.
- and make this natural gem known by and shared with the maximum number of people.
Our project is located both at the entrance to the National Park, as well as at the heart of the lake. Our conception was thus directed towards a desire to become part of the site’s topography, in the most diffuse and contextual way possible, whilst at the same time offering very different vistas of this exceptional panorama. The result is not a concentrated village, but a scattering of areas which are to be found along the overall area, from the road which starts to wind through the mountain, to the shoreline below.
The views of the landscape feature all along the cliff road, thus creating a variety of panoramic views depending on the altitude.
