Bishop’s home reconstruction – Monastery of Archangel Gabriel

Zemun, Serbia
Ksenija Bulatović, Ivana Sasin, Igor Vujačić

Monastery of Archangel Gabriel is located in the city park of Zemun. It was necessary to design several small buildings, which would complete the monastery complex: the parish hall, souvenir, space for the exhibition of icons and space for candles. We applied the style of Byzantine spiritual architecture in a contemporary way. The forms are simple, almost modern. Materials used are traditional: wood and plastered walls. The spaces are designed to include plenty natural light. We placed the buildings in a way that would minimally disturb the existing distribution of vegetation in the park.
