Quality construction

kvalitet izgradnje

The architecture of St Simeon, inspired by Serbian mediaeval culture and tradition, called for the use of the most valuable construction materials: wood, stone and wrought iron.

Siberian larch

This extremely high quality timber has been used for the first time in construction in this region, in a 50 mm cladding on the façade and in the roof shingles of the Jaram Villas. It is impervious to rot and lasts for centuries; it is resistant to humidity and changes in temperature and has high resistance to fire. It is a natural antioxidant and a source of phytoncides which give protection from colds and viruses. This timber does not need any kind of protection.

Stone and wrought iron

Since ancient times our mines have been known for their superior natural sandstone, known to science as Bela Voda sandstone. Because of its high concentration of quartz it is extremely abrasion resistant and the stone ranges in colour from cold white, beige and yellow to shades of dark red and brown. Its permanence is seen in the mediaeval monasteries and churches built from this stone, some of which have resisted the ravages of time and war. They include Ravanica, Kalenić and Manasija.

The foundations, supporting walls and roofs of the Jaram Villas are clad in this valuable material. Together with the timeless modernity of traditionally hand-made wrought-iron decoration this refines the ambience of the villas. Stone and wrought iron never go out of style, weathering time and fashion to create the aesthetics of a new tradition.
