The project aims to develop unique atmosphere, worthy for country’s sport champions, while creating an ambient that shows original Slovenian hospitality, culture, entrepreneurship and architecture to the rest of the world.
Considering the size and various functionality that the Slovenian house will have during seventeen days in February 2018, it has been decided to develop rather simple architectural structure with focus on the usability of the space and idea came to the traditional symbol of Slovenia’s culture, “kozolec”. Completely vernacular architectural style will be combined with simple and most recognizable traditional Asian elements, paper lampions.
The structure, designed by Slovenian architects Gregorc & Vrhovec, will support various gathering purposes and people from different backgrounds; sports, media, entrepreneurs and visitors. Focused on multi functionality, hayrack structure will optimally divide the space for different purposes; main social area - restaurant, 2 auditories for informal and formal events, lounge area and open spaces for exhibitions or presentation of the sponsors.
Being for years in line with Slovenian trends and countries visibility, BIG BERRY and Hosekra are the specialists for development of the structures that blend in and create the feeling of unity by joining the spaces, goals and creative concepts.
