Event Title

Hybrid Buildings: in-between planning, building codes and development models – setting the paradigm for Hybrid Buildings in Kosovo

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

With the ongoing urbanization and the rise of urban density, the value and price of land has constantly increased, requiring economization of resources through programmatic juxtapositions as well as public space formation for various users who live, work, cater or recreate, creating the potentials for a union of public and private spheres. This paper explores the possibilities and necessities of developing Hybrid Buildings in Kosovo, by identifying planning constraints as well as architectural solutions and development models. By using examples from our Design Studio at our Faculty of Architecture, various patterns and models of Hybridization are explored, compared and evaluated within real contexts and sites, hence identifying and setting the gene of mixed-use developments, especially residential uses within various non-residential programs. Finally, the integration of the interfaces of many programs, implies a symbiotic development and operation, with the aim of increasing the efficiency and reducing or avoiding walking distances.
