The Skadar Vineyard Estate is situated in the rural valley between Cetinje town and Skadar Lake.
The proposed development looks to regenerate existing vineyards of this lush and plentiful area and make a luxury village with spa,swimming and tennis facilities.
This rural location is surrounded by hills and orientated longitudinally North-South with open views to the mountains. The design of the site is inspired by traditional Montenegrin stone village houses, typical of this region. The Vineyard Estate concept is based on similar developments in Italy, France and South Africa, where vineyards are utilised for the Tourism and Hospitality industry.
Design and Construction
The site is divided into three areas. A country club hub with Spa and recreation facilities, a boutique hotel with high-end restaurant and a residential development. The residential development will have access to swimming and tennis facilities.
The bulk of the development will be characterised by luxury villas nestled between the vineyards. This is part of regeneration project for vineyards which are disappearing in this valley. As it is an integral part of this development, the vineyards and winery will serve the guests of the Vineyard Estate.
External treatment of all buildings will include the use of thick local stone walls to the South and West, with those to the North and East in contrasting render. All lower ground walls, balustrading, stairs and paving will be of local stone, with traditional roman tile roof coverings.
Environmental and Sustainable Development
The development density of the site has been set to 20%. This policy reflects a strategic aim to minimize ecological impact and allow for sustainable development.
The proposed development is set within well established woodland, orchard and vineyards. Given this rural setting, it is imperative to retain as much of the existing landscape, native trees and bio-diversity as possible. Much of the existing woodland can be retained as a screen to the North and East. The existing vineyard will be revitalized due to its important local significance.
