Ksenija Residence

Adriatic adventure
Inspired by the old squares of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ksenija embraces the Adriatic.

Ksenija holds a key position in the local town context, bridging the gap between the existing town of Tivat and the new public realm of Porto Montenegro. The site acts as a gateway from the town into the marina site, and key to its success is the pedestrian permeability at ground level, influenced by the old town squares of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

At the upper levels a series of landscape roof gardens and terraces provide respite and privacy for residents and offer stunning views over the Adriatic. The elevated pool terrace has been designed with an infinity edge pool, seamlessly connecting with the water below.
Shade is provided by umbrella formed plane trees, and Mediterranean planting is tolerant of the coastal conditions, providing a floral backdrop against ancient olive trees, improving biodiversity for the area.
At ground level the mixed used development provides an active edge of retail, bars and restaurants creating the life of a waterside village. A series of carefully considered points of interest serve as landmark links to aid wayfinding, with more subtle sensory clues such as scented jasmine streetscapes, the sound of fountain jet water and framed vistas to the adjacent Boka bay.
The use of local stone and native vegetation add a further recognisable visual context and reference to the materials found within the local area.
