The team has been commissioned by SITNO Holding Real Estate to produce the first phase of the 77,000 sq m site on the island of Ugljan

The masterplan incorporates a series of premium villas with private infinity pools, townhouses with shared pool amenity and four apartment blocks. The residential scheme is underpinned by a publicly accessible beach club located adjacent to a proposed new marina, which is set to be complete with food and beverage outlets, leisure facilities including gym and spa, small retail units and a large external hospitality space with a pool terrace.

The various different residency options share a common architectural vocabulary and materiality, creating a uniformed brand for the product range; this architectural language has been inspired by the dramatic landscape and marine tradition. 

With contrasting shades of the local stone and contrasting dark grey paint, the residences are finished with robust steel detailing. The beach club bears a corresponding design palette to the residences and will act as both a waterfront gateway and a central destination for the scheme.

As the design lead for the first phase of this masterplan, we have realised a scheme which embraces the site’s landscape and celebrates its origins. The brief was to produce a suite of premium products which together create a sense of destination unique to Lukoran. The scheme’s design will set a new benchmark for quality resorts in Croatia.
