Niš, Serbia

In mid-2012, SAMACH + SEO were commissioned by Clean Earth Capital LLC to develop a master plan for the adaptive reuse of Bubanjski Heroji, a former military camp in Niš, Serbia. This is the first military-civilian redevelopment project in former Yugoslavia.
The developer has a very ambitious mixed-use program consisting of a variety of housing types, a commercial center with a retail mall, hotel, office building, and a mixed-use tower, as well as a university, medical center, cultural center, and a sports complex.

Our objective is to create a sustainable work, educational, leisure and living environment for the citizens of Niš, by fostering a sense of community for the whole project driven by sustainable principles including preserving trees on the site and generating synergy with the existing town center. The master plan was approved by the local authorities Q4 2013.
