We are pleased to announce that International Residence, a multi-family residential project designed by Laguarda.Low, has broken ground in Prishtina.

International Residence is a dynamic collection of eight multi-family residential buildings set amidst the rolling hills to the southeast of Prishtina’s center. The overall design is conceived from the dramatic site topography, the individual blocks articulated in a contemporary collage that reflects their surroundings. The nine-story buildings are positioned around the site’s undulating perimeter to form a centrally landscaped communal courtyard. Modern residential units with understated luxury rotate and stack within each block to assure at least two exposures for view and natural light. The unique rotation and stacking of units generate both terraces and balconies for virtually every residence.
In short, the contemporary, modern design elevates one’s living experience, offering a dynamic atmosphere that reflects today’s international lifestyle.
Materially, International Residence is composed of sleek contemporary finishes with great attention to detail, both inside and out. In the modern tradition, glass and metal are used carefully to identify form and function. Stone and wood are used specifically for scale and warmth. The color palette throughout is light and elegant, ranging subtly between white and earth tones, accented when necessary, by dark mullions, doors, and roofs.
International Residence offers a range of residential layouts from duplex townhouses to luxury flats to penthouse apartments. In addition to verdant private terraces and balconies, residents have access to numerous curated outdoor spaces – gardens, parks, playgrounds, and plazas. Additional amenities include a sports court, a fitness center with pool, a community center, kindergarten, leisure, and multiple lounge and social spaces, both inside and out. The commercial offer onsite complements the residential development with boutique fashion, food & beverage, and service stores in addition to a boutique supermarket.
With an eye to a sustainable future, International House incorporates an all-encompassing eco-friendly strategy. The complex utilizes both active and passive solar energy as well as a rainwater collection system. Individual units are filled with natural light from at least two exposures and a radiant floor heating system is used throughout.
To call International Residence home is to inhabit the latest in design innovation.
