Sažetak

(ne postoji na srpskom)
The architect Branislav Kojić started his career in Belgrade at the beginning of the third decade of the 20th century. Belgrade, as a capital city of newly established Kingdom SHS, in the period between the two Wars, got completely new significance which led to the intensive development of the construction activity. In the period between the two Wars three leading styles - academism, national style and modernism fought a constant battle. Academism was the official architectural style supported by state institutions and individuals, as well. Only representatives of national style remained firm and consistent in unacceptance of new ideas, with the exception of Branislav Kojić, representative of a special type of national style based on elements of folk architecture. He did not just accept the postulates of modernism, but also became one of their strongest defenders being with another three of his colleges at the head of the GAMP. Style changes which marked the Belgrade architecture in the period between the two Wars were present in the work of the architect Branislav Kojić. By researching new aesthetic values he found inspiration in national architecture and academism, as well as in modernist principles of architectural forms. Although his rich architectural opus includes buildings of the most different purpose, on the basis of previous researches, this was the first and sole time that he applied his architectural skill in the domain of the hotel architecture. The hotel "Post office" was built on the property of the hotelier Đura Ninković in Štrosmajerova street 3 (nowadays Slobodana Penezića Krcuna street). Mister Ninković bought the property with a ground floor house and restaurant from Natalija Smiljanić, widow of doctor M. Smiljanić in 1927. Having realized potential of the locality, the hotelier Ninković removed existing buildings from the property and in the period from May 1930 to December 1931, he built the hotel. The building of the hotel "Post office" conditioned by the shape of the lot where it was built, got irregular, almost rectangular shape. This three-floor building with attic, got only one façade, although originally it stood freely and could be seen from each side. This façade treatment is one of the characteristics of Kojić’s architectural expression. Namely, during construction of the objects in the style of academism (except pavilion "Cvijeta Zuzorić") in accordance with usual academic methods of creation, he formed only street façade.
