public market and Senj writers memorial house
The space of the Frankopan Square was developed during the history inside the ancient City Walls of Senj built in the 10th century. With a strong memory of the past and its great ambiental value, this place has always been one of the main gathering spots in the town.
The fact that the 14th century City Lodge is located on the south of the square witnesses of its great importance for the people. During the time, the space was tied up by the unplanned building complex. The project emphasizes the forgotten cultural and social importance of the space, creating a stage for future events. This project highlights the generated relationship in which the proposal is interlaced with the ambiental surrounding through reduced geometry by minimum expression through a vertical line, so that the old town ambience and the program are interlaced and coexist under the same cover.


To build a house as a monument, as a vertical stage which dissolves the limits between the House and the square. To evoke the ambiance of the writer's room. The House is a room and a room is the House. One room with countless purposes, the ‘’city lodge’’ of the present.
