Project Team: Emir Salkić, Muhamed Serdarević, Armin Mešić, Emina Hadžihasanović, Benjamin Popržanović / Location: Ilidža, Bosnia and Herzegovina / Project Year: 2008-2009 / Realization: 2009 / Client: Magaza doo, Sarajevo / Budget: 170 000 EUR / Site Area: 700 m2 / Built up Area: 180 m2 / Photographer: Munever Salihović
The music studio with an apartment unit located at Ilidža, near Sarajevo is a reflection upon the fact that nowadays, recent technologies and means of mass production question the border between industrial and administrative buildings. Farm as a synonym for food production – as a basic need for survival – could be used even for music production, which has become a product that is interlocked throughout all segments of modern living.
Modern trends to design work spaces near living spaces are reflected through a more rational use of time and resources.
The building is located on a flat terrain with an existing one level building that consisted of three living units covered with a four-pitched roof. This building was partially demolished so that it could be adjusted to the new needs.
The new building is designed within the same dimensions of the existing building and is divided into two functional areas: living area (80 sqm) and work area (recording studio 100sqm), with all the necessary equipments and recording standards, as well as music production of top musicians.
The building is made from a combination of concrete structure and brick masonry. The outer shell is made of sheet-metal and is isolated with rock wool. The are wooden and carpet floors. The music studio is made of plaster boards in a «house in house» system.
