Student Housing Poljane
This student housing project stands on the edge of Ljubljana city centre, near the river bank, comprising 56 dwelling units for the students of Ljubljana University. A series of public programs (teaching spaces, communal living and leisure) are concentrated in a horizontal transparent base, while a series of student living units floats above in two slabs. Student units are organized around central service cores containing bathrooms and kitchen/dining rooms, which appear on the elevation of the building as huge openings or eye-like windows overlooking the street. Adjoining student bedrooms are screened from the street by a series of perforated aluminium folding panels, protecting the inhabitants’ privacy from the street bustle.
