FUTURE. HERITAGE.

By using Montenegro as an architectural backbone, the neighbourhood has been designed to complement the landscape and echo the colours and textures of the destination. Montenegro’s Venetian heritage is reflected in gabled roofs and traditional stone walls. The well-articulated architectural spaces are brought to life using locally sourced stone and wood, offering glimpses of the Montenegrin mountains and Adriatic waters throughout. Uniquely drawing inspiration from the destination’s local heritage, the architectural design combines traditional building materials and techniques with contemporary architecture. The Peaks has been designed with thoughtfully divided spaces to maximise true indoor-outdoor living. Inside, earthy tones and natural materials are paired with bespoke furniture, whilst outdoor options include paved terraced or planted gardens.

SUSTAINABILITY AT ITS CORE

Luštica Bay is dedicated to sustainable design principles, and the Botanika development is no exception. The project incorporates ecoconscious design elements, employing energy-efficient technologies and integrating locally sourced materials throughout to minimise its environmental impact. Light-coloured, high albedo materials reduce heat island effect, whilst thick insulated walls function as thermal mass across both warm and cool seasons. Native plant species have been imbedded throughout the neighbourhood to minimise water consumption and maintenance. Covering just 10% of its 690-hectare site, Luštica Bay’s low density-development is committed to preserving the destination’s natural beauty across all its neighbourhoods.

CONTEMPORARY CONVENIENCE IN A TRADITIONAL SETTING

The villas feature dedicated golf storage and unobstructed views of the neighbouring brand-new golf course. Private pool decks, and terraces with lounge seating and dining areas have been strategically designed to offer residents seamless indoor-outdoor spaces. In the wider neighbourhood, pedestrian connectivity is promoted through pavements and trail systems, with access to key outdoor spaces such as the pool, terraces and golf plains, to form a harmonious community. Christina Kontou, Senior Architect at Block722 says of the project: “We are delighted to have collaborated with Luštica Bay on the Botanika villas and to have worked with a common vision to harmoniously combine architectural form and pure nature, reflecting the topological, historical and architectural heritage of Montenegro”. Marking a significant milestone in the region’s high-end real estate and tourism landscape, The Peaks development and its architectural design continues to establish Luštica Bay as the ultimate coastal destination.

NATURE.EMBRACED.

The design seamlessly integrates the natural shapes and scents of the Luštica Peninsula, preserving native macchia woodlands and garrigue scrublands. The selection of plant species, from evergreen shrubs to culinary herbs, ensures a harmonious blend of green hues with occasional accents of white, purple, pink, and yellow. The landscape design not only reflects the natural beauty of the region but also embraces Luštica’s deep cultural heritage. As the development matures, the true value of this visionary approach will become increasingly evident over time.

GAME. RAISED.

With it’s elevated position between Boka Bay and the Adriatic Sea, The Peaks’ 18-hole golf course boasts an unrivalled setting with picturesque vistas in every direction. Designed by the esteemed Gary Player Design, who are renowned for their ecological approach, the course seamlessly blends with its natural surroundings, creating a harmonious fusion between nature and sport. Each hole has been thoughtfully crafted to maximise the beauty of the landscape, providing golfers with a unique and unforgettable experience.Seamlessly extending from the course’s design to its broader community, the esteemed golf club emerges as a central hub for the sport’s connoisseurs, ready to welcome international tournaments and host exclusive gatherings that underscore its global stature.
