JA Joubert Architecture, a Rotterdam-based architectural office, has won first prize in an international competition for a new neighbourhood in Tirana, Albania. Invited by a private developer, JA Joubert Architecture decided to break with standard sub-urban development by proposing an integral solution for building and parking, directly linking them to the terrain conditions, thus creating a new community for different (age) groups, with sports and health facilities, set within a continuous green park with beautiful views to the city and Tirana lake.

Greenside Out, competition entry for mixed-use building by JA Joubert Architecture

JA Joubert Architecture, a Rotterdam-based architectural office, has won second prize in an international competition for a new mixed-use building along the Rruga Durresit, the main road into Tirana, Albania.

Breaking with the traditional box-like shapes, JA Joubert Architecture filled out the space set by the urban regulations, and subsequently hollowed out this shape until the maximum allowed volume was reached. In doing so, the strong, recognisable outer shape, is contrasted by beautiful open inner spaces and at the same time the proposed shape allows for a flexible development in program between shopping, offices and housing.
