Best of 2021

In 1903 Max Fabiani designed the Trgovski Dom, one of the first multifunctional buildings of the region which rapidly turned into a symbol of the city. The NŠK Slovene Library is now located in part of the ground floor and of the basement, implementing a new collective function in the building. The very large windows are acting as a communication tool withthe city daily life along the main street and the opposite park.
The 5,40 m. internal height allowed to insert a half floor detached from the facade to avoid conflicts with it. The library is designed as flanerie path spread on different levels for different activities, providing carefully designed spots for every different need, going from stimulation to dialogue below to more classically organized study areas on top.
A symbolic connection with the urbanistically dominant element of the building, the corner tower, is inserted in the half floor right next to the entrance.
