Škocjanski zatok nature reserve

Ravnikar Potokar arhitekturni biro / 2016
LOCATION: Sermin 50, Koper

Škocjan Bay is formed by marshes, a relict of the sea which used to encircle the town of Koper. It was formed after the saltpans were first built and later abandoned, and was continuously threatened by the proximity of the town with its port, roads and railways. Thanks to its rich flora and fauna, the site was proclaimed a nature reserve in 1998, and was significantly improved after an intensive rehabilitation. Over the last year, a visitors centre was built, along with bird lookouts and several other buildings. All were designed according to sustainable building principles to supplement the teaching trails through the reserve. They are built predominantly in wood, with a visible vertical construction resembling birds’ nests.
