The Project

By reviving the main historic buildings, we will turn the place into a global food & handcraft centre. With the support of top European experts and prominent local Chefs, we are converting the old community school into an International Cooking School with a focus on preservation of traditional Balkan home-style recipes while offering core programs like French Cuisine, Bread, Bakery, and Pastry. The old bathhouse will become a Crafts School with workshops in wood, ceramics, and traditional textiles. The campus will be smart, energy-efficient, and technological. Our mission is to revive, grow, and propagate old vocational trades via a blend of traditional and digital mechanisms, creating actual opportunities for young people, contributing to the social & economic prosperity of the region, and building a sustainable space for intercultural knowledge exchange.

Reconstruction & Renovation
of the buildings

We have started the reconstruction of the old school and the old village bakery & bathhouse buildings with the idea to restore their historical architecture and spirit as much as possible. At the same time, we are fully renovating all systems and installations, introducing new technologies to turn them into comfortable, energy efficient and sustainable spaces. For this purpose, we have gathered a team of architects, designers, specialists in energy efficiency and heating, as well as geologists to conduct surveys and studies of the terrain and buildings. We are also working closely with a team of culinary and crafts specialists as well as tech experts in order to develop advanced technological & equipment plans for each and every room and common area within the complex.
