SHAPING THE CITY
Colaborating with Jerica Polončič
Design studio workshop prof. Jordi Badia
"An architect should be able to recognize certain qualities of a city: its characteristics, the needs of its inhabitants and the scale of the context. This is especially crucial for interventions in the historic city area. The site, located between the Wolf Street and the Hribar Embankment, is an example of three buildings joined into one linear structure. The Ljubljanica, the promenade along its bank, the views of the castle hill and the Wolf Street with its squarelike ambient define the site's surroundings. The shape of the embankment promenade gradually narrows and offers a new open space potential. The main idea behind the project is to connect the levels of the river-side with the level of the Wolf Street and thus enhance the dimension and the potential of the public space. We therefore left the ground level of our intervention open. The new building refers to the surrounding context regarding the use of materials and the rhythm of the window openings."
