project, Zagreb, 2007.
Central Residences is a sophisticated new concept of urban luxury living, something completely new on the Croatian market of apartment housing.
The idea behind this project is to introduce a home which has both the furnishings and the services of a luxury hotel in an urban metropolis. Each unit of the Central Residencies has a view of the century-old Zagreb cathedral, with the position in the very center of the Croatian capitol, makes it the most exclusive residential building in Zagreb.
The best location in the city and the immediate vicinity of the most important city spots - Jelačić Square, Dolac Market, Ribnjak Park, Zrinjevac Park, the streets of Ilica and Gajeva - give added value to its urban character.
It is the place for people who want to live in exclusive residential premises while enjoying all the contents of an urban metropolis.
The idea was to build a home, a sanctuary from the noise of the big city, but with a contemporary feel, refined details and sophisticated ambiance. The building has been conceived as a modern residence with unique apartments and city houses.
In the best tradition of pedestrian passageways in Zagreb, this residential complex has a passageway through the whole building. It crosses the entire block from Jelačić Square, through the building of Gradski Podrum restaurant, to the streets of Cesarčeva and Kurelčeva. Inside, the main attraction is the spacious green garden in the center of the residential complex.
The courtyard garden is an interlude of greenery, the focal point of all the auxiliary contents of the building. On two levels above ground and one below ground, it is surrounded by all the contents which make the complex so exclusive.
