This year` s facade is the most unusual we ever had. For the first time we don´´ t have one compact wall surface but five horizontal ones. As you can see in the pictures below this year we wanted to paint over five balconies of an apartment building. Each of these facade "stripes" has a surface of approx. 25 square meters which makes it 125 square meters in total. What makes this facade even more special, and what you should keep in mind when preparing your proposal, it´ s that it is located right next to our 2016 winner!
These both buildings are located at the very entrance to Prijedor on the corner of the Raskovica and Kralja Petra I Oslobodioca streets. ( Road M54 eastwards)
