LOCATION: Celovška cesta 182, Ljubljana

Our fundamental goal was to create an interior that gently entices onlookers and potential clients, while at the same time hiding them from the noisy, illuminated area of the shopping centre. This transition was made possible by the contrast and rhythm of the façade with its interchanging elements. We drew inspiration from the philosophical approach of Kengo Kuma, a master of Japanese architecture. Both the dim lighting and a balanced design of all special elements serve as a nod to Asian design and its fundamental elements.
