HELP MAKE ONE HISTORIC BUILDING IN THE CENTER OF ZAGREB SAFE AND INHABITABLE AGAIN

THIS CAMPAIGN IS FOR FUNDING EMERGENCY REPAIRS, SO ALL INHABITANTS CAN COME BACK HOME WITHIN 2-4 WEEKS

THE CAMPAIGN IS LAUNCHED BY TWO ARCHITECTS, WHO ARE INHABITANTS OF THE HOUSE

 

Imagine being hit by two disasters at the same time

The City of Zagreb was shaken by a severe earthquake on March, 22 2020. The citizens of Zagreb, just getting prepared for the peak of the global Corona-Crisis were left with big concerns about their homes on that cold Sunday morning. After hours of incertainty, the inhabitants of the house at the corner Draškovićeva street and Kralja Držislava street were divided in two groups: The ones living in the north wing were confronted with the fact that their staircase is not safe for use and they could (and still can) not move back into their homes. The owners of the flats in the west wing of the building are allowed to use their part of the building with limitations.

 

Who we are

We are owners of one flat in the described building, oriented to the less damaged Draškovićeva wing (west wing). We are also a couple of architects with our own architectural practise (bakickulstrunk.ch) operating in Switzerland and Croatia.

 

Mission statement

We want to use our professional knowledge to help our neighbors overcome this nightmare the fastest possible and get back to the normal locked down life at home in the times of the COVID-19 threat. With the goal amount of € 29'700 we can get there as fast as in two weeks. We even started with the building of the scaffold and the bracing of the staircase, only we don't know yet how to pay the bill for this.

In order to make the house as fast as possible inhabitable and safe again all listed emergency measures have to be performed as fast as possible. The current balance on the collective account for maintenance is 0 due to ongoing works (basement, foundations repair 2018, roofworks 2019). For the possible reconstruction of the north staircase funds from the City of Zagreb can be expected. These funds are expected after a precise assessment of damage and require a detailed project documentation for repair. This will take some time. As the ongoing Corona-Crisis is threatening not only the temporary homeless Inhabitants but also their relatives, especially the grandpas and grandmas with whom some of them are staying now, we hope to collect the necessary amount for the emergency measures with this crowdfunding campaign on fundrazr.com, so we can proceed with them immediately.

Every Euro or Cent donated will be used only for the emergency repairs on the house. Our work for the emergency repairs is volontary and we will not charge a single euro for it. 

The reconstruction of the staircase, the elevator machine room and the extensive damage around the flats is not to be funded by this campaign.
