Tirana Central Park is SAM Architects first international project encompassing 150.000sqm of mixed use development in Albania’s capital. The site is part of a wider  master plan developed by Grimshaw Architects which extends the existing north – south boulevard centred on Skanderberg Square by 3km to connect two large lakes via a sequence of open spaces.

The project has a unique setting, adjoining the boulevard, a public open space, a central park with views of  Mount Daji in the background. The varying site condition offer the opportunity to explore different building typologies with the ambition to consolidate the omnipresent outdoor culture, the colours and the Mediterranean light of Tirana.
