A hostel is planned at the site of the "unfinished" housing block Jukićeva - Kačićeva - Kršnjavi in the city centre. Targeted at the large student population and due to its proximity to a string of educational institutions, the programme has been expanded to include additional content – a jazz club and a library. The plot size is 2120 m2, while the required area of the building is approximately 2500 m2. The work methodology included research, analyses, an examination of the context, space and time in the aim of an integrated observation and appreciation of issues within the domains of architecture, urbanism, culture, sociology, traffic, economy. In addition to research and the establishment of a theoretical framework of activities, students had to take into account all the technical and functional aspects of the required (hybrid) typology, the location and the urban policy, technical issues, constructions, details, pedestrian, automobile and delivery accessibility, integration with existing buildings. The end product of a term paper was presented in the form of a draft booklet and poster, 3D visualisations, a model and presentation accompanied by constructive criticism provided by architect Hrvoje Njirić.
