Description Change this

Kozolec Building designed by Edo Mihevc, was inspired by Le Corbusier's L'Unité d'Habitation, Marseille. In contrast to that building has different front and back facades, as is positioned on the main avenue running through Ljubljana's center. The first floor was designed for shops and the mezzanine originally for clubs and restaurants. Typical of Le Corbusier is the size with magnificent pillars rising from the plinth and the roof of the terrace. The front facade consists of balconies framed by white stonewall tiles along its entire length.
