City Market Vukovar
City Market in Vukovar City is a new, modern building designed by Architectural office Rechner, design team architects Predrag Rechner and Bruno Rechner. The building is designed in the shape of a large trapezoid, tilted and opened towards the south, with windows on three sides, but closed towards the north due to a strong northern wind. The southern façade is covered with rotating aluminums window shutters used to regulate the amount of summer and winter sunlight, and regulate the wind in case of adverse weather conditions. Thus, the market space occupied by many local producers can be open by warm weather and closed during winter, with its own microclimate within. At night, when the market is closed for business, the window shutters rotate and close the building, while the linear LED lighting illuminates its facades.
Nova-lux was engaged for a complete electrical engineering design on this project.
The object is finalized and opened in 2017.
The project won the 1st place for “2A Architectural Award 2018” for the best commercial building in Europe.
