Mountain ski restaurant Raduša is located at the top of the beautiful Raduša mountain range in central Bosnia, at an altitude of 1720 meters. Conceptually, it is based on the idea of a mountain pavilion – viewpoint, located at the ski resort, in the middle of the green hills overlooking the valley. The irregular shape of the building was formed by reinterpretation of the terrain. Its’ gentle sloping roof allows topographic integration and blends the structure into the surrounding landscape. The fractured surface of the roof rises and returns into the terrain, and the restaurant facilities are neatly tucked under it. The roof height adjusts to follow the facilities and contents thus contributing to the dynamics of the restaurant and bar.

The south, entry terrace allows outdoor après-ski program, and the northern offers beautiful views of the surrounding Bosnian mountains and Uskoplje valley. Visitors can find a safe haven by the large fireplace within the single volume space, while enjoying the local food and scenery looking out through the large glass surfaces. The complete interior and the furniture were designed and manufactured from local wood. The aim was to make an impression of warmth, typical for mountain houses, which are calling for a warm drink and relaxing by the crackling fire.


3LHD_185_Ski_Restaurant_Radusa_photo_10A positive circumstance was that the client/investor was also the main contractor, so the challenging steel structure panelled with 5mm thick steel sheets and all other construction materials were manufactured in local factories located in Uskoplje.
