Description Change this

As an example of academism in architecture, in accordance with its purpose and client, this building showed Milica Krstić’s dedication to functionalist approach to design. The complex program was skillfully divided into 2 buildings – the courtyard building, simple in its appearance and intended to house auxiliary facilities, and the Command building, whose academic symmetry allowed a functional distribution of space, in line with its program. The front facade is also treated in accordance with the building’s purpose, and the massive stone decorations clearly represent the power and stability of the institution that was the Gendarmerie of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
Today, this is the building of the Commercial Bank.
