Green Lab is the first urban garden in the center of Belgrade, as well as an open-air classroom dedicated to sustainable development. This specific multifunctional outdoor space is used for the implementation of educational programs, lectures and workshops in the field of sustainable development and green economy as well as an open workshop intended for neighbors and interested individuals who wish to be involved in the maintenance of this sort of urban garden. In the framework of the Together for the Community program, NIS supported this specific working and educational outdoor space, which covers around 250 m2. Until recently, this was only the roof of a nearby object and uncultivated piece of land overgrown with weeds, now has been transformed into an educational and ecological oasis called Green Lab, that is used by the local community and visitors of numerous programs and events at Nova Iskra. Through the organization of lectures, presentations and workshops, this laboratory represents experts, collectives and initiatives that are active both in local, regional and international context through the application and testing of various “green” solutions in the domain of urban gardening, setting up sustainable waste management systems, responsible use of natural resources and the use of alternative energy sources, as well as the application of other practices and technologies that contribute to the improvement of living in urban areas. Programs within the Green Lab are aimed at young professionals, users of coworking space, experts and the wider community with the idea to raise awareness, broaden the knowledge and build capacity in order to be ready to implement sustainable solutions in everyday life as well as within the working, learning and leisure spaces. The Green Lab is open for collaboration with individuals, initiatives and organizations that are interested to create similar urban gardens in their surroundings or to share their experiences in the process of creating sustainable concepts of life within our community.

In May, after the landscape architecture month, we spoke about the terraces design, especially in urban areas. Consequently, there is an increasingly less available space on the ground (in terms of landscaping the areas), the trend of greening and landscaping of terraces (smaller home terraces, apartment terraces, as well as those larger areas – roof terraces) is increasingly present. Their benefit is evident by improving the microclimate conditions of the environment, including the creation of unique ambient and oasis. Here is a very important selection of plant species that are used, which are resistant to extreme environmental conditions (wind, stronger insolation, etc.). We also have a selection of pots and pottery for planting, materials, design elements, furniture and furnishing, lighting and other details.

Interview on these topics for one TV show, you can see below.

The authors of the Landscape Factory studio are part of a team that proudly brought five stars to Ljubljana. The architecture of the InterContinental hotel, located in the very heart of the city, as the tallest building in Ljubljana, is signed by the Ofis Archtects studionfrom Slovenija, while the team of authors from Serbia was responsible for the landscape architecture and terrace on the 20th floor. Modern design of the parterre has clear and pure form achieved by building six interesting shaped surfaces with different dimensions. In the form of supporting walls, the space for undisturbed tree growth has been left open and the depth of the substrate has been achieved in an elegant manner. Passages for easier communication, flow and movement of users are left between the green areas. Thus, the views towards the ground floor of the hotel are created, but the perspective from the interior are also opened by the specific exterior scenes. Green surfaces with their cubature bring the third dimension of the garden and a kind of exterior sculpturality. Plant species are there to contribute to the general impression of creating ambient units, enhancing high aesthetic norms and functions through sound and visual isolation of space and the reduction of pollution damage. The playfulness of the architectural structures of the outer space creates an unusual landscape-architectural ambience of the oasis, as a kind of green fortifications in the urban area.

Dejan Popov, founder of LF Studio, spoke about the design, landscape architecture, as well as the project of the ground floor exterior and terrace of the Intercontinental Hotel in Ljubljana. The interview was published on the eKapija and Gradnja.rs web portals.

During April 2019, we had the great pleasure to plan and organize the first #gardening party and #teambuilding in our country for company Dr. Oetker Serbia. Everything was organized and arranged on the occasion of the first of May. The first of May is a national public holiday in many countries worldwide, in most cases as “Labour Day” or “International Workers’ Day”. Some companies give a heartwarming example of how they love and value their employees and encourage team spirit. They all did a great job, with a lot of hard work, even more hugs and most of all smiles and happiness.

When the designers have an opportunity to creatively express themselves fully, they never remain bound. It causes an unusual landscape form in which attention is given to every detail. This garden flirts with terrain height differences and areas, boasts the shapes, colors and materials placed in contrast with a peaceful base tonality, show the diversity of plants and elements, with all reflecting the personality of those who will use this space in the future. Confronting all of these differences, the aim was to create a unique setting – a kind of ‘green room’ in the open air. The users of this garden tell everyone that they have a creation for all senses. They say there is absolutely nothing you cannot do in your small garden – your green outdoor room.Story about private garden of single-family house in Belgrade was published in the EkoKuća – magazine for eco architecture and culture / No19 / April-June 2016 / Publisher Archisolar Ltd.

The spaces and facilities intended for reconstruction carry with them many obstacles and limitations, numerous conditions predetermined both by the architecture and the terrain, as well as the urban surrounding and objects. Then before architects and landscape architects placed a difficult task, but almost always inspiring and interesting in its overcoming the obstacles and solving problems. Nostalgia, an emotional connection to space and a desire to refine and preserve the former ambiences are the reasons why clients tend to direct their energy towards an interesting but often not so easy venture. It remains for the landscape designer to blend all the elements and ergonomics into one – a picture of a garden with perfect aesthetics. Painting an empty open space is what gives you the charm and joy of creating something new. There are many pieces to assemble a well-painted garden artwork, and only one result is needed – a harmonious and pleasant garden area of the whole suitable for outdoor living. Through the weather changes of natural materials, the growth and changing of the epithets of plant species, as well as the permanent elements of structure and furnishing, the painted will always remain as the most favorite framed, artistic work.
