Description Change this

Minimalist modernist design in an urban context. The massive frame with smooth stone cladding lies like a large window open on both sides - the adjacent park and the inner courtyard - on the free glazed ground floor. The building completes the urban corner of Prešern street and opens the passage to a modern park-designed corner next to the College of Economics. With its position and volume, it controls Prešern street. It is necessary to protect a single glass ground floor and a transparent floor with a single program of a public nature. The building got Prešeren Fund Award in 1963.

The restaurant center fell under construction machinery in the first weeks of May 2011. This is a underground garage house now and there are 320 parking spaces on 4 floors.
