I’m proud to present one of my blogger friends’ efforts here and invite you to see some awesome work by Belgrade Streets photography. I invited Andy to answer a few questions about his work that I have been following on his blog. I found it hard to pick my favorite photo on his blog so here is a couple I have chosen that I think sums up Belgrade Streets so well. A fresh, personal view of the city that is completely honest, and confounding to much of Serbia’s reputation. Great to see photographers, under their own motivation, creating their own work under their own voice, and finding ways to get it seen on their terms. I’m looking forward to seeing more from this photographer. Here is 10 @ 10 with Andy.

INTERIOR | FASHION
Project: Fashion Studio| Architects: Irena Kilibarda | Location: Belgrade, Serbia
Here are some images of a fashion store in Belgrade, Serbia, designed by architect Irena Kilibarda of Dsigned By for fashion designer Tamara Radivojevic. Fashion Store is located in the centre of Belgrade-Strahinjica Bana street, which has become a hotspot for up-and-coming fashion designers and their studios since its opening.
Much like the fashion designer’s neutral, minimalist creations, the Fashion Studio in Belgrade maintains a modern, minimalist aesthetic, which is probably due to Kilibarda’s use of concrete. The walls and floors are all made of concrete, and curved in a way so as to visually rise and meet each other.

Comunale restaurant is located in Belgrade, an industrial building constructed in 1937, which stretches along Sava river port, five minute walk from the central city pedestrian zone. Once warehouse with six meters ceiling height and construction grid defined by concrete columns of 5.5 meters span, the place was converted into new gathering place of Italian cuisine’s lovers. As the name suggests, seating is organized with massive communal tables, made of steel, positioned both on ground floor and gallery, with wooden benches and bar stools. Focal point is bar counter, tile covered, where guests can observe the preparation of food.

“If an artist tries consciously to do something to others,
it is to stretch their eyes, their thoughts, and to do something they
would not see or feel if the artist had not done it.
To achieve this, he has to stretch his own horizons first.”
– Henry Moore
Everyone always dreams about owning a yacht one day but we all have to agree this is the most amazing yacht you have seen!
Hedonist embodies the very soul of Art of Kinetik. Blending enviable levels of comfort and refinement with daring looks and peerless performance, this 63 foot yacht epitomizes the genre. Its solid mahogany hull and Rolls Royce water jets combine to deliver a stealthily smooth ride even at speeds up to 40 knots. Aesthetics define every detail: no screws or plastic are visible anywhere. We believe Hedonist is the purest expression of art and technology imaginable.

Designed by Architect Isay Weinfeld, the Square Nine Hotel is a contemporary construction integrating both modern and historical elements, as seen in many of the surrounding buildings. Located in the heart of Belgrade’s historical center, the boutique-inspired hotel is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and Kalemegdan.
Square Nine Hotel is the first five-star hotel to open in more than a decade in Belgrade. Located right in the heart of the historic center conspiring the ideal place to stay and pamper yourselves in contemporary luxury as you discover the blossoming capital of Belgrade. One of my favorite cities in the world.
The hotel was born from the owner’s desire to be part of Belgrade’s renovation, impressing a luxurious, but more familiar character to the city.
The interior design applies materials such as stone, bronze mirrors and wood claddings, both light and dark colored, which results in very cozy ambients and the most elegant atmosphere.
