KONNTRA is a result of a friendship, creativity and belief that everything can be achieved. It is a mixture of the present and the future, something that is nowadays, in countries of former Yugoslavia, fairly rare, especially with such a result. Māgoa is proud to present 3 young architects, Mirjana Lozanovska and Silvija Shaleva from Macedonia and Erik Jurišević from Slovenia.
“At the beginning of 2018, KONNTRA started to build its initial shape. It started with the development of conceptual projects challenging conventional and consolidated practices. Our main objective was to explore original paths of thought and develop innovative design tools and methodologies. Proving excellent results, we started to participate at architecture competition calls in Croatia and Bosnia. As a result of our enthusiastic work, our first participation project was awarded with 1st place at the International Competition for Architecture and Urban Design of The City Hall building and main square in Zenica, Bosnia.”
“This gave us additional motivation and energy that spurred us to focus on developing KONNTRA and new projects. This is the beginning of creating architecture that eliminates boundaries and borders. Architecture that is close to our personalities, architecture in which you can read our thoughts and our identity through specific mode of graphic expression.”
“Few months later we won 1st Place on architecture competition for the project of High School in Vukovar, Croatia and additionally 1st place at competition for Design and Refurbishment of the “Square of Traditional Crafts” in Varaždin, Croatia.”
“Each of these projects has a different and specific story. At the same time, we are working on other private projects, as a challenge to experiment with unconventional typologies.”
