Remodeling – Extension of an Old Building in Belgrad, Serbia

By • Jun 25, 2018

This old building, located in Leopoldova kapija, Beograd, Serbia, was remodeled in order to obtain two extra duplexes. To this end, the architectural professionals in charge of the project, Danilo Nedeljkovic and Ela Nesic, built a new facade in a modern style that contrasts with the old construction, as an extension to the existing one to create the new volume.

The work was carried out in 2018 and has an area of 300 square meters. The building and its interiors receive little natural light during the day due to its North orientation. The new glass facade also made the interior space of the new volume have much more natural light and look much brighter and more cheerful than the lower masonry floors.

By introducing the glass wall in the street facade, the principle of erasing the interior and exterior limits and the dematerialization of the new volume has also been achieved. The segments of the facade of the painted yellow glass were introduced to revive and refresh the glass surface of the new volume, as well as to make a visual connection with some elements of the previous facade.
