Its a holiday 

In the past two-decade I'm a passionate traveler and visitor of the worlds most interesting hotels for a vacation. Hotels as a theme, became my architectural focus, mostly because of my graduated project for MSc at the Belgrade University ,which was a design for a hotel in Kragujevac / Serbia.

Hotel Adams Beach / Ayia Napa

Cyprus represents one of the most visited touristic destinations in the Mediterranean, and the reason for this is primarily the crystal clear and azure water, but also the fairy-tale rocks, as well as the world-famous resort of Aya Nappi, which is home to one of the most beautiful hotels in the world, Adams Beach Hotel 

Cyprus is an island and state with great people, nature, history, and most of all the place with the world's best Hotels like Adams Beach Hotel at Aya Napa. The high-class complex with its own bay with clean waters and unique outdoor pools with waterfalls, an open jacuzzi, and special pools for children. Imagine more than 150 palm trees around you that make you like you are in the Caribbean sea despite that you are in the Mediteran. 



If you could imagine a cruiser that is eventually docked in a beautiful bay in Ayia Napa it will be like staying at the Adams Bech Hotel which deserves all recommendations, especially for families with children, and also quite special wing accommodations for adults without children.

The hotel's owner famous Cyprian family Kitazos is responsible for every great moment that you will have staying on his premises and you won't regret a minute or penny for choosing this hotel.

If you want to visit Cyprus choose Adams Bech Hotel at Agiya Napa and you will be delighted with the hotel and personnel that will make your holidays mesmerized that will spontaneously invite you to go back there in the future.

Cyprus...is waiting for you 

A very special island at the crossroads of waterways and air routes of Europe, Africa and the Middle East with traces of prehistoric habitat and countless conquests in the Middle Ages due to its God-given position for trade and influence in this part of the world, today it represents the pearl of the Mediterranean whose northern part has been cut off by the occupation of Turkey from 1974


The island that was inhabited even in the Neolithic era with today's artifacts exhibited in the National Museum in Nicosia undoubtedly indicates the connection of that culture and people with the population of Europe in those times and especially with today's Serbia, comparing the artifacts of Vinča culture (named after the largest locality Belo Brdo - Vinča part of today's Belgrade) with archaeological objects found in Cyprus.


The struggle for the freedom of Cyprus, inspired by their turbulent past, was recorded in the book of famous Cypriot writer Mr. Savas Kokkinos, whom you can still meet today in his shop in the pedestrian zone in Nicosia. 


Today, Cyprus represents one of the most visited touristic destinations in the Mediterranean, and the reason for this is primarily the crystal clear and azure water, but also the fairy-tale rocks, as well as the world-famous resort of Aya Nappi, which is home to one of the most beautiful hotels in the world, Adams Beach Hotel https://www.adams.com.cy/

Casa do Baile/ Pampulha

            Najplodonosnija faza u  projektantskom opusu Niemeyer-a,   koja se ogleda u realizovanim  značajnim javnim objektima u  Braziliji, nije bio njegov prvi veliki slučajni posao koji je dobio po službenoj dužnosti .Da bi za tako značajne objekte bio pozvan da ih kao arhitekta i osmisli, bilo je potrebno da se mladi Oscar pokaže na delu prilikom poziva da projektuje  pet objekata ( casino, ekskluzivni club, sala za igranje , crkva i hotel ) na obali veštačkog jezera u Pampulha-e , koje mu je u tom trenutku obavljajući funkciju gradonačelnika Belo Horizontea, naručio upravo Kubitschek (predsednikom Brazila u vreme izgradnje novog glavnog grada Brazila - Brazilije).
Set naručenih projekata, predstavljao je celinu, čiju sinteznu nit  pre svega karakterišu oblici i potezi, koji uprkos njegovoj mladosti i ne velikom iskustvu vodjenim pre svega velikim talentom i ogromnom količinom kreativnog naboja , projektuje uspešno i osobeno u takvom obimu, da mu je upravo ta  saradnja,  kasnije omogućila preuzmanje  najznačajnije  uloge u njegovom životu - uloge glavnog arhitekte Brazila.
Tandem Niemeyer-Kubitschek u Belo Horizonteu, kreće u svoje prve osvajačke pohode ka ispisivanju najznačajnijih stranica istorije arhitekture 20.veka.

The most fruitful stage in Niemeyer's designing opus, which is reflected in realized significant public buildings in Brasilia, for sure  was not his first project on the one of the mayor public scene in the world.One of his first chance was in fact, an invitations to design five facilities (casino, an exclusive club, dancing hall, a church and a hotel) on the banks of the artificial lake of Pampulha that Kubitschek in that time mayor of Belo Horizonte, later president of Brazil during the construction of the new capital of Brazil - Brasilia was intend to build.
A set of project - a five omnibus  architectural concepts , whose synthetic filament was primarily characterized by forms and moves, despite his youth and lack of experience, was a five pieces of huge amount of creative energy,successful projects that has been an excellence chance for him to extented his cooperation with Kubitschek, who has been in position to give him  the highest role in his life - the role of the main architects of Brazil.
Duo Kubitschek - Niemeyer in Belo Horizonte, moving into their first conquests to the writing of the most important pages in the history of 20th century architecture.

Svaki početak u karijeri beleži upravo ono što Vi suštinski i jeste.
Lični stvaralački senzibilitet, projektovan u oblike koji nastaju potezima upravo Vaše olovke (miša), postaju obeležje Vašeg stila, koji se može pročitati u svemu onome što će te kasnije stvarati, ne povezujući nikada svesno prve korake sa svim što kasnije sledi .Oscarova "kriva" linija  nije slučajno prisutna u njegovim radovima u Pampulji .Ona je tu zbog vode ,talasa ali i oblina  devojaka koje je video na podijumima klubova u tom ili nekom drugom gradu. Ženski torzo  je u retkim intervjuima koje je davao pominjao kao poseban vid inspiracije za stvaranje svojih projekata.

The first steps in the career record for exactly what you essentially are. Personal creative sensibilities, designed in forms that occur exactly as your pen strokes on paper (mouse on screen ) become the hallmark of your style, which can be easilly read in all that you will create later, never consciously linking yours first steps with all that follows later. Oscar " radial " line is not accidentally present in his works in Pampula. Maybe it is there because of the water and nature , or maybe as a simbol of the  girls bodies  that he could seen on stage at the clubs in that, or some other city such as Rio , what he was always  love to mentioned as the main inspiration simbol for the creation for his  projects. 

Krug iz kojeg izlazi pozitivna  energija koja se kreće ka prirodi ,vodenoj površini koja ga kao savršeni postament prihvata za gosta .Naizgled komplikovan i bez potrebe razudjen objekat , u stvari predstavlja krajnje sveden i konkretan oblik muške polne ćelije-spertmatozoida, u okruženju koje i jeste njen prirodni ambijent -vodi.

Sala za igranje na malom ostrvu,  "igra" na vodenim talasima.
Delo majstora koji svoj početak "igranja" sa oblicima, počinje malom ali jako ubedljivo ekspresivno - senzibilnom strukturom."Točak" Oscarov-ske arhitekture počeo je da se kotrlja.
Circle from which the positive energy that moves towards nature, the water surface,which he accepts as a perfect pedestal for the guest. Seemingly complicated and for the first look  without reasons jagged object, is in fact a highly reduced and the specific form of male sex cells-spertmatozoida in the environment and is its natural environment - water.Dance hall as a small island, plays on water waves.Work of a master who is just starting to  "play" with the forms, small but very convincing expressive - sensible structure . "Wheel" of the Oscar's architecture began to roll.

Ritam muzike iz enterijera sale za ples, prenosi se na otvoreni prostor pored vode... Šetnja zaljubljenog para "palubom" broda sa cvetovima za dragu na dohvat ruke , ispunjava svu svrhu kreiranja objekta sa asocijacijom na kretanje muške jajne ćelije koja novi život može udahnuti, upravo nadahnuta ambijentom kreiranom od strane Niemeyer-a . 
Scenografija koju na početku svoje karijere stvaraju ruke budućeg majstora arhitekture  ali očito i velikog poznavaoca socijalnih interakcija, bila je za njega verovatno posao iz snova  koji je odsanjao tako, da i danas možemo uživati u pogledima upućenih ka ovom  pre svega sa svojom simbolikom u osnovi jedinstvenom objektu .

Rhythm of the music from the dance hall interior fly to an open area near the water ...
Couple of lovers walk in love on the "deck" of the boat with flowers for a sweetheart at your fingertips fulfills all the purposes of creating an object with an association with the movement of the sperm cells that could breathe a new life, just inspired by the ambience created by Niemeyer's.Scenography designed in the early-stage of his working years, but a master piece of an architect and in the same time  of an  great connoisseur of social interaction, it was probably for him a dream job that he live in reality.Dream  in which we could enjoy,  by focusing the views in a direction of his architecture as a symbol of nature with direct association on a fertility .

bravisimo maestro Niemeyer

ArhiKen / Kendrick Bangs Kellogg

Kao student na Univerzitetu u Koloradu u 1950.-toj godini , Kellogg se našao ispred fotografije Rajt-ovog remek dela, stambenog objekta pod nazivom, Fallingwater .Trenutak za koji kaže da je tada " postao svestan arhitekture koja je predstavljala kompliment prirodnog sveta , i koja nastaje u harmoniji sa njim. Ubrzo nakon toga Kellogg prisustvuje Rajtovom predevanju u Taliesin Zapad institutu njegovom kampusu u Skotsdejlu u Arizoni.

Bio je to podsticaj u karijeri koji mu je bio potreban.

As a student at the University of Colorado in the 1950s, Kellogg happened upon a photo of Wright's 1937 residential masterpiece, Fallingwater. And only at that moment he “ become aware of architecture that was a compliment to the natural world, in harmony with it.” Soon afterward Kellogg attended a lecture by Wright at the famed architect's Taliesin West institute in Scottsdale, Arizona.

It was the career impetus he needed .

"Ne postoje pravila u organskoj arhitekturi ,ona razvija uvek novi stil svaki put kada je pokrenete ", kaže Kellogg , i dodao je da veruje da će i u High Desert kući, baš kao i u Rajtovoj Fallingvater , jednog dana biti u funkciji objekta koji predstavlja javnu arhitektonsku izložbu ili možda čak i novi centar za doček u Joshua Tree nacionalnom parku . " To je reinterpretacija principa prirode da stvori obrasce u skladu sa pejzažom , a ne na njima "

“There are no rules in organic architecture--it develops a new style every time you employ it,” says Kellogg, adding that he believes the High Desert Home, like Wright's Fallingwater, one day will serve as a public architectural exhibit and perhaps even a new welcoming center for Joshua Tree National Park. “It is the reinterpretation of nature's principles to create forms in harmony with the landscape, rather than on top of it.”

Južno od US autoputa 62 , u žbunastom delu koji se graniči sa Joshua Tree National Park , na okruglom brežuljku od sunca - pečena gromada raste sto fita u visinu. Na suprotnom krilu , zaklonjena od asfaltne spiralne civilizacije suočena sa živom formacijom stena u parku , polu - konkavna struktura slojevitog betona čuči kao u zasedi u velikoj meri kamuflirana među stenama . Da je to nečiji dom je izgleda manje značajne od toga što je ta struktura u stvari smeštena u tom ambijentu . Očigledno sa promišljenim intelektualnim pristupom u dizajnu , izgleda da se radi o formi koja je evoluirala, ili možda se srušila u ambijent , u kojem se uspostavlja kao sloj natprirodne elegancije ... ili možda pršljenova kao ostataka praistorijske zveri . To je , bukvalno i simbolički , vrhunac organske arhitekture . I to je zamisao jednog i jedinstvenog Kendrick Bangs Kellogg-a .

South of US Highway 62, in the scrublands bordering Joshua Tree National Park, a knoll of sun-baked boulders rises a hundred feet high. On its opposite flank, shielded from the asphalt tendril of civilization and facing the sentient rock formations of the park, a semi-concave structure of layered concrete crouches largely camouflaged among the boulders, as if in wait. That this is someone's home seems less significant than that it is actually there. Obviously intelligent in design, it also appears to have evolved from, or perhaps collapsed into, its setting--an outcropping of preternatural elegance… or the vertebral remnants of a prehistoric beast. It is, literally and symbolically, the pinnacle of organic architecture. And it is the brainchild of one Kendrick Bangs Kellogg.

Koncept za High Desert kuću, kako Kellogg naziva njegovu kreaciju sa ironičnom neplodnošću , inspirisana je delima i rečima Frenk Lojda Rajta " Dakle, ovde stojim pred vama ... proglašavajući organsku arhitekturu kao moderan ideal ", rekao je Rajt u 1939. " ( To je ) nastava koja je toliko potrebna ako želimo da vidimo ceo život , u službi celoga života , držeći se toga da nema tradicije bitne za velike tradicije ". Ova velika deklaracija - bila je odskočna daska za arhitektonski pokret utemeljen na obrascima i materijalima koji su svojstveni u prirodnom svetu - okrenut je ka ideji da priroda ne može uraditi ništa loše . Rajt-ov postulat : " Sa organskom arhitekturom , odnosno arhitekturom na osnovu organskih ideala , loš dizajn bio bi nezamisliv .

The concept for the High Desert Home, as Kellogg calls his creation with ironic aridity, was inspired by the works and words of Frank Lloyd Wright. “So here I stand before you… declaring organic architecture to be the modern ideal,” said Wright in 1939. “(It is) the teaching so much needed if we are to see the whole of life, and to now serve the whole of life, holding no traditions essential to the great TRADITION.” This grand declaration--the springboard for an architectural movement founded on patterns and materials inherent in the natural world--turned on the notion that nature could do no wrong. Postulated Wright: “(In) an organic architecture, that is to say an architecture based upon organic ideals, bad design would be unthinkable.”

Blistavi enterijer muzejskog - kvaliteta ,sa unutrašnjom stolarijom i metalnim fiksacijama u domu su izrađeni prema dizajnu izvođača John-a Voggeren-a, i u velikom delu su zamišljena i izradjena na licu mesta . Vrata , kvake , sudopere i toaleti postali su umetnički predmeti oblikovani i formirani da se uklope sa temom dizajna njihovog okruženja . " Džon je precizan , apsolutni umetnik , ali sam ga odveo do njegovog limita na ovom poslu ", kaže Kellogg . " Većina ljudi ne bi išla u pravcu u kojem smo išli , ali vlasnici ove kuće gotovo nas nikada u tome nisu zaustavili . "

The home's startling, museum-quality interior woodwork and metal fixtures were crafted by artist and metalworker John Voggeren, with much of it conceived and fabricated on-site. Doors, latches, sinks and toilets became objets d'art in their own right, sculpted and formed to carry the theme of their given environment. “John is precise, an absolute artist, but I took him to his limit on this one,” says Kellogg. “Most people wouldn't have gone in the way-out directions we went, but the owners almost never stopped us.”
