Description Change this

The object is set next to a regional road Ljubljana-Trst on the axle of entrance to a railway station. Complex design of a building is based on consistently executed roof, continuous reinforced concrete slabe, which gradually thins out in a direction of a console. The tectonic effect reduces the supporting concrete frame, whose vertical sides are under a slight angle with respect to the plane of the roof and the ground. The roof slab extends asymmetrically to the east and forms an entrance hall with a stone wall (protection against the bora wind). The petrol station was demolished in 2000.
