"Seen from the Rejceva Street and the Prvomajska Road - the play of "window" and "balcony" openings with emphasized frames on the color-neutral-facade background will become an easy-to-remember image of the Zvezda house", says Sadar Vuga Architects on their design of Apartment House Zvezda. More

Formulasstate concepts or "main ideas", applied to SVA architectural products. They are used as the communicational tool in the office while developing a particular product, in discussions with the client and presentations to the public.

Formulas exist regardless of typologies, program, location, site, budget, time of execution, symbolic power, landmarking, and any other parameters that outline the "uniqueness" of an architectural product.

Formulas communicate architectural products away from their technical categories ("curtain wall", "chilled ceiling"), topological categories ("mountain house", "seaview window"), or typological categories ("office building", "courtyard").

A formula is articulated such that it captures both the character of an architectural product and its affect on the observer and user.
