project NHRV House, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina


Only ten minutes away from the center of Sarajevo by car, one can reach a completely different environment of harsh mountain climate, different vegetation and extraordinary views. This area near the city has traditionally been sparsely populated, with small cattle settlements most of which were used only in the summer.


Today these areas represent spaces that for decades have been subject to the development of residential and weekend settlements. Under the influence of planned and unplanned tendencies of physical infrastructure development, the area is slowly becoming a certain kind of suburb, a constantly populated site near the city.
