When the client is so sincerely driven by passion and excellence the designers is happy to put in that extra mile; to hone, ponder, redo, research, return, rethink, transform one’s conceptions and habits. The design of Boškinac hotel and vinery was a journey that took us back to our roots, to the lust that fueled as when we just started architectural school before that lust was changed by the market and the limitations and rules of conventional and expected modes of behavior. The result is a complex that wants to be contemporary but decent to its surroundings, the context and the layers of history.
