Reconstruction and Interior Design of former Administrative Building of Kosuta Shoe Factory, Cetinje

The Reconstruction Design and the Interior Design for the purpose of accommodating Business Incubator and Innovation Centre was focused on the part of the building used as the administrative building of former shoe factory “Košuta”. The referred intervention revived the building into the Business Incubator and Innovative Centre, the innovative function of which largely impacted the concept of the building’s architecture. The concept of industrial design, simplified lines with carefully selected but simple materialization, is basic motif underlying the intervention.
The ground floor accommodates public and manufacture functions, operative and hospitality activities. The second floor is conceptualised as the floor for office and conference premises with multimedia hall that seats 80 persons. The central section of the floor is designed as flexible office space suitable for interactions and creative work.
Steel sheet metal combined with veneer plates (so-called “blažujka”-s) and oak massif as accentuation are suitable materialisation both for the working and production space usage. The partitions are devised as economic and easily movable “lexan” partitions with steel substructure which complements the flexible concept. The floors are covered with epoxy typology and the ceilings have barren beams and visible installations.
