M02 DESIGN STUDIO PROJECT
The Museum of Recycling represents a project of revitalization and reactivation of a
currently abandoned building near the Branko bridge in Belgrade, in the immediate vicinity
of the river and the Sava Promenade.
When designing the building, the aim was to preserve the existing condition, which primarily
refers to the existing facade, which is partially additionally protected by a glass double
facade in order to show the relationship between the old and the new. It is for this reason
that the old, original shape of the roof, which is partially covered tiles that were the
original covering, while one part is covered with glass in order to contrast the old way of
building with today’s innovations.
Through the processes of setting up the concept and developing the project, the goal was to
achieve the highest possible energy efficiency through the analysis of resources and the use
of local, sustainable and organic materials.
