Apartment on the Pražakova ulica street in Ljubljana
Year of construction: 2008
Project group: Petra HUDOBIVNIK, Gašper MEDVEŠEK
In an old bourgeois house in the centre of Ljubljana, we renovated a 150 m2 apartment.
The renovation concept is based on the basic floor plan arrangement, taking into consideration the customer’s wishes, and is featured by the “box”. The box is a kind of cube in the middle of the space, and is intended for service functions, like cooking, cleaning and wardrobe space. Around it, like a necklace, are the, bedrooms, anteroom, living area with dining room and a terrace. After the renovation, the living area is left open, leaving it bright and airy connecting it to the terrace and offering a view of the Castle.
The box in this space functions as a filter, as “something in-between”. Closed, it completely divides the space and opened, it allows for a fluid interaction.
The impression of the space is further emphasised by the use of only two materials – oak for the box area and white surrounding it – with the use of sliding partitions.
