The state-sponsored housing programme in Croatia has given rise to several interpretations.


Enabling people to buy good quality and cheap residential premises. Using public competitions to help young and unknown architects realize their first architectural creations. Motivating rational residential construction using modern technologies and developing new dwelling typologies, without forgetting that housing is an important element of the urbanity of the towns in which we build.
