Renovation of the Delavski dom landmark building, preserving
the urban dominant feature at the entrance to the city centre.
The 1938 addition to the original structure is replaced by a
new structure, following existing elevation line. Structuring
of volumes on the southern edge paraphrases the urban pattern
of surrounding villas.
Concept: White sheath of the renovated corner building is extended
into black texture of the new addition. Monofunctional use ensues
into monoform, which addresses the city in deep chorus volume
and allows the old landmark building to perform the solo part.
All else is a composition of programmes, caught behind a red
wall and in a silver tower, addressing the lengthy Kolizej building
and adjoining cell structure of villas.
Capacity: office and retail areas: 8000 m2, parking: 3.400 m2
