Task: Renovation of a business hotel in Ljubljana; design concept for all common areas and the rooms. Redesign and redefinition of the lobby and mezzanine with a café and bakery that are open to the public as well as conference rooms.
Renovation and refurbishment of a late modernist 13-storey high-rise building just outside the centre of Ljubljana. The hotel dates back to Slovenia’s socialist era and is now mainly used for business meetings. It is undergoing a complete refurbishment: floor-by-floor renovation of the rooms, restructuring of the ground floor with a new, extended lobby, creation of conference rooms and dining areas. A café with an integrated bakery opens onto a street-side terrace. The newly created dining areas are open to the public, making the hotel an attractive, vibrant meeting place.
