Renovation of a historic centre - castra in Ajdovščina

Ravnikar Potokar arhitekturni biro / 2021
LOCATION: Prešernova ulica, Lavričev trg, Ajdovščina

Ajdovščina has a strong historical and spatial identity, so it was extremely important that the new interventions subtly integrate into the existing structure.
New interventions were therefore approached with restraint and designed to be largely anonymous and in harmony with the Roman layout of the settlement, preserved Roman ruins and works of architect Svetozar Križaj from the 1960s.
