(31 Terazije )

One of the most famous buildings from Terazije was built in 1938 in a modern style, designed by two architects, Petar and Branko Krstic. Construction was made possible by Sima Andrejevic Igumanov who was a Serbian retailer and philanthropist, and the building is protected as a cultural monument in 1977.

The palace was built in a modernized version of the Serbo- Byzantine style and has wide arcades on the ground floor and vertically disaggregated facade on the upper floors with a long arched openings. They emphasized on the corners and opposed the formal characteristics of late modernism that were based on the marble cladding of the facade and rows of rectangular windows on the top floor and patio on the ground floor.
