The design of the complex combines traditional architectural vocabulary with the form of old Austro-Hungarian fortresses thus creating a free and organic urban matrix. It should represent a fortified and gated community with high luxurious apartments neighboring the old town of Budva. It is also full of sophisticated details from Venetian and local history. Therefore, it replicates the spirit of the place by using local materials.
