Under 10 % of vast territory of 690 hectare site will be developed, safeguarding the area’s natural beauty and ensuring ample wide open green spaces.
The development’s low density ensures the unique thumbprint of the indigenous landscape is preserved. Attention is given to conserving the marine environment, protecting native flora and fauna and maintaining historical and archaeological sites.
Luštica Bay blends into the existing topography and terrain of its surroundings. All plants and trees used are indigenous to the Montenegrin coast and are organically cultivated.
Using local materials, referencing traditional architecture and entwining with the natural patterns of the land and sea, buildings harmoniously express the character and cultural heritage of the region.
Green construction methods are utilised to reduce the project’s carbon footprint. Initiatives include the use of regional building materials, water conservation, waste management and energy-saving technologies.
All architecture exploits the latest energy-saving methods from cross-ventilation to effective insulation, ensuring buildings slash current regional energy consumption by a third.
The development strives to make use of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.
The emphasis is on a pedestrianised network with vehicle-free streets, sidewalks and green trails for ease of getting around. Alternative transport methods and cycling facilities will reduce traffic.
SENSE OF COMMUNITY
Luštica Bay works with local neighbourhoods to create a strong community network for environmental initiatives such as community supported agriculture, a local market and efficient recycling systems.
Environmental care extends far beyond construction, providing a sustainable foundation for future generations.
