Summer highlights from 3LHD

Date: Jul 2020

Infobip Campus Zagreb

The construction of the Infobip Zagreb campus began in September 2019., with completion expected in November this year. In addition to office spaces, the campus will also feature accommodation units for employees from all over the world. The office spaces are located on the first three floors, organized around a common atrium to optimize communication between employees. All public spaces on the Campus will be located on the fourth floor: a rooftop terrace with plenty of greenery, a restaurant, and a lecture room. The residential units, located from the 5th to the 7th floors, are grouped in the north and the sunny, south part of the green roof is intended for sports and recreation. Greenery is also present on the office floors facade. It is an organic façade that changes appearance as the seasons change, protecting the building from the sun and defining its visual identity.

Park Kneževa - living in a green oasis

Park Kneževa, new block surrounded by Branimirova, Bornina, Domagojeva and Erdödyjeva streets, will combine housing, business spaces and an urban park. Construction began in February this year; underground garages are currently under construction. The client, VMD Model, is planning to complete the block by February 2022. Buildings inside the block are surrounded by a park, in interaction with the greenery due to their variable heights and floor plans. The project will be a pedestrian link between Branimirova and Bornina street and provide access to public amenities in its interior. This will raise the quality of living not only for the block residents but also for the neighbours in the surrounding buildings.

K District project

The construction of the first phase of the K District project in Belgrade is almost complete. This residential and business complex is in Dorcol neighborhood, near the cultural and historical centre of Kalemegdan, Sava, Danube, and a former industrial zone. The client, Belgrade-based Kalemegdan development, wanted the entire complex to fit naturally into the old city centre surroundings. 3LHD is the author of all facades, public spaces of the complex and the new green promenade. This modern residential complex will feature business spaces, public open spaces with playgrounds and lounging zones, and a pedestrian promenade with greenery and a multitude of entertainment amenities connecting Kalemegdan and the river. 

Hotel Katarina

The construction start of the new Hotel Katarina in Opatija is expected in autumn 2020. The investor is the Opatija based company Katarina Line, one of the leading Croatian cruise operators. The hotel is inspired by sailing, sea, and travel.

The hotels' spatial layout reflects the layout of the ships' decks. Located near the Opatija Riviera, this modern hotel is an homage to Opatijas' tourist heritage, a refined place for socializing and gathering where the guests are greeted by a pleasant atmosphere and the feeling of returning home after a long journey. Alongside the accommodation units, the hotel will feature a restaurant on the first floor, a roof top swimming pool and sundeck, and wellness facilities at the underground level.

Rimac Campus

The schematic design of the new Rimac Automobili Campus has been completed. After the summer break, we will continue with the design development phase, and construction is scheduled to begin in January 2021. The first phase of realization includes the construction of 70,000 m2, including a 40,000 m2 production plant, and the second envisages 30,000 m2 of additional production plant spaces. Located in the immediate vicinity of the Erdödy Castle in Kerestinec, the campus will feature modern office spaces, a showroom, a museum, a restaurant for employees and visitors, a nursery and accommodation units for occasional guests and employees from around the world. The project is environmentally friendly and the only visible volumes are the production plant and the office building.

Reconstruction of Hotel Westin in Zagreb

Westin, the largest hotel in Zagreb, in addition to its rich history, is characterized by a central location and fantastic views of the city and Sljeme. The goal of the reconstruction is to restore the old splendour to the building and breathe new life into it in order to create a modern city hotel that offers new experiences, high quality service, and inspiration to every visitor. In addition to renovated and modernized rooms, all public areas of the hotel will have a specific character - a relaxed and pleasant lobby, restaurants on the ground floor with lots of greenery that will offer an authentic dining experience, a panoramic restaurant on the top floor overlooking the city and an urban, energetic rooftop bar. The investor of the project is HUP-Zagreb.


collaboration platform

VOLUM3 was created with synergy and enthusiasm, based on real needs of an architectural office. It is the ultimate collaboration tool that stores all project info in a cloud-based platform and makes project management fast and easy, from design phase to construction and facility management. VOLUM3 allows paperless design and construction, which makes it ideal in conditions where physical contact is not possible. VOLUM3 modules are digital versions of real-life workflows - everything is project related. Active modules include: Plans, Tasks, Meetings and Rooms (test phase). Two more modules will be active this autumn: Specs and Product catalogue:

Awards for Urania

We were awarded two prizes for the project of old cinema Urania reconstruction. The first one was the Croatian Architects' Association annual Viktor Kovačić award for the most successful achievement in all areas of architectural creation. The second award we received was the annual Vladimir Nazor Award for 2019 in the architecture and urbanism category. The award is given by the Republic of Croatia for the best artistic achievements in the field of literature, music, film, fine and applied arts, theatre, architecture and urbanism in the Republic of Croatia.

Urania - space of creation

Urania - space of creation is a place for cultural events and art, but also a space for the exchange of creative ideas and discussions on numerous cultural issues. Urania is a place for exhibitions, concerts, performances, film screenings and various cultural events and creative disciplines. The situation with the COVID-19 virus has shown us that we can work both online and offline. Part of the programs thus continued to be held on digital platforms, which allowed us to reach an audience outside of Zagreb, which would have never been reached in the old way of offline action and would never see what is happening in Urania.

Gredelj Zone development study

The study of the urban revitalization of the former Gredelj railway vehicle factory was adopted in February this year. Along with 3LHD, the authors of the study are: de Architekten Cie, IGH Institute, Colliers International, MS Partners law firm and HDC - hotel and destination consulting. The project aims to revitalize the abandoned industrial area for the purpose of accommodating public, social and cultural amenities. With the realization of this study, Gredelj would be transformed from an abandoned neighbourhood into a new city centre, which would connect the north, south, east, and west into a single whole, considering the preservation, restoration, and sustainable use of protected cultural heritage.
