The building is located on a 2500 sqm lot in the protected city core in Subotica.
The design of the facade of the business-residential building in Petefi Sandor street 3 in Subotica was a specific task, one that is rarely seen in the local architectural practice. DG Company, with the support of the Intermunicipal Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments, announced an international competition for the architectural design of the street facade. The reason for this cooperation is the position of the building which is in the protected city center of Subotica between two buildings with protected stylistic facades from the end of the 19th century - the buildings of the Gymnasium and the Polyclinic. 93 works from 17 countries arrived for the competition, and the first prize went to the work of the architectural studio PLATFORM from Belgrade. After the agreement was reached with the investor, minor corrections were made to the tender solution in order for the new facade solution to adapt to the situation on the already active construction site. DG company is the first private investor in Subotica and beyond to announce an architectural competition of an international character for the conceptual design of a facade of a building. Two lamellas were built, one on the street side that connects the Gymnasium and the Polyclinic and the other in the yard. During the design and construction of the facility, DG company met all the requirements of the Intermunicipal Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments. According to the conditions of the Institute for Urbanism, the lamella on the street side followed the existing regulation line and its height corresponds to the height of the neighboring buildings.
