Spatial-Functional Organization of a Contemporary Apartment in Serbia




Contemporary Apatment, Spatial-Functional Organization, Housing Unit Development, Housing


The expansion of residential construction has marked the last twenty years in Serbia. Contemporary housing construction is popularly called “investor construction”, and it is based on the investor’s influence on achieving the greatest possible capacity in relation to the area of the plot, the largest possible area for sale, as many apartments as possible per floor, the largest possible dimensions of the building on the plot, and the largest possible number of rooms within the smallest possible total square footage. The research’s aim is to discover how the aforementioned effects manifest themselves in the spatial-functional organization of the units. The analysis is performed on the case studies of residential construction in the largest urban areas of Belgrade, Novi Sad, and Nis. The findings of this research show that different authors repeat the same functional organization regardless of the location where they are constructed.
