Kalas contemporary creative space

Aleksander Brezlan, Matevž Granda / 2015

Kalas Contemporary is a multifunctional residence with exclusive furnishings and a glass facade, which merges the intimate interior with exceptional views of the wine-growing region. In the centre of the residence, there is a stunning piece – a grape press from 1837. The object also includes a museum collection of local rural tools and items, a gallery of contemporary art and an art studio. The residence is designed as a unique living unit within an oasis of peace – a green recreation area, spanning across 600 sq meters.
The residence was designed by two Slovenian artists – architect Matevž Granda and designer Aleksander Brezlan. The architectural concept of this modern object preserves the layout and certain typical elements of an old wine-making homestead, yet at the same time defines a new architectural approach in the context of modern living.
