Graduated in 1985 from the Faculty of Architecture in Sarajevo. In the early 90s, she simultaneously worked in various companies and independently designed her first interiors. After a five-year hiatus caused by the war, she founded the architectural office Entasis in Zenica in 1997. Since then, she has continuously worked as the chief architect on various projects. The first post-war years were marked by intensive work in the Vitez Valley, where a construction boom produced many new typologies. One of the first such typologies was the GMS Shopping Center, followed by many similar projects. Together with her team, she worked on many projects, including the Franchise Center in Vitez, the Kakanj Municipality Building, the Makovi Residential and Business Complex, the Administrative Building and Showroom Tisa, the Small Administration House and Big Pine Trees, many residential buildings in Zenica, Sarajevo, Mostar, Tuzla, and numerous urban villas.
Vedina is an active member of the Bosnian architectural scene, supporting young architects, actively participating in the organization and promotion of architectural competitions, and giving numerous lectures.
Over the past 27 years, Entasis has worked on more than 60 projects, realizations, and preliminary designs. In 2011, Entasis started promoting Bosnian designer furniture with its brand Intent Design. The Intent Design Showroom is now part of Entasis’ business building, and Entasis is both the investor and designer.
Entasis has won many awards, including Collegium Artisticum awards for realization, Big See awards, Share Omnia Award, and nominations for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and EU Mies Award.
Vedina Babahmetović is the first woman without a partner to win the Grand Prix Collegium Artisticum prize since its founding in 1975.
