History

The house of Luan Rudi belongs to end of 18th century. It is located in street "Tringë Smajli" in the center of Prishtina. Initial function was residence, but over time the ground floor was turned into commercial space while the first floor is still used for residential purposes. The building presents a typical example of civic house P+1 of the closed garret type, emphasized erker towards the road, adobe walls of 70cm and 30cm thickness. The floor structure is with wood timber covered with planks, while vertical communication is done through wood stairs. The house has a four sided roof, built with timber and covered with tiles. The interior is characterized by wall cupboards with two wooden wings (yklyk) and ceilings made of wood with broken side frame on four sides and a rosette in the center. The building has managed to survive thanks to the owners’ commitment (the last one was family Rudi) although in poor physical condition and with changes in terms of appearance and function. Given the building damages, particularly the roof and its cover, with funds of the MCYS and the commitment of QRTK Prishtina, the replacement of damaged roof beams with new beams and re-covering roof with tiles took place in December 2012. The building intervention is taken as an emergency step to protect the building until the provision of funds to complete its conservation. Referring to its typology and position, besides architectural values, this house has also the environmental value to the city of Prishtina.
