In the work of the Belgrade's architect and professor Nikola Dobrovic, Dubrovnik opus stands out due to its specific quality. Respect for local cultures and resources, as well as identification with the Mediterranean way of life also determine his two projects on the Elaphite Island of Lopud: Grand Hotel and Villa Vesna. The villa, intended for residence throughout a year, is situated on the northern slope where remains of former dwellings were found. These remains were used for construction of the villa's terraced garden supporting walls, and the garden includes an old olive-grove. The first two floors are partly buried into the hillside, the above-ground floor creates an exterior space with shadows for daily usage with its console protrusions, and the roof terrace provides a place to stay after the sunset. An excellent idea by the architect of natural air conditioning is related to the roof terrace.
