Description Change this

Residential buildings are located in a beautiful natural environment around Bajina Bašta (Baja's gardens). They were made in the GIMS system - industrial building system. The project was created as a part of a years research and applied to locations in Leskovac, Bašta, Zaječar, Smederevo (Serbia) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina). Hydro power facilities offered smaller and very cheap flats instead of metal containers that were originally proposed for family workers from the construction site from Libya and Iraq. The external cladding is made of craft facing brick instead of precast panels to give a better energy savings.
