Description Change this

Tavern Lucija was designed by Slovenian architect Edo Mihevc in 1963. An abonded ground floor pavilion was situated in the Fazan Canal in Slovenian coastal settlement Lucija.

Its construction was minimalistic, orthogonal and skeletal with flat roof. The Tavern was constructed of pillars and pylons with prefabricated concrete elements in the shape of a letter “U”, which served as load-bearing construction and roofing. Individual elements were connected with roof tiles. The architect used a similar roof system in terraced houses in Šalari in Koper.Dining room faced towards sea. The glass walls were sun protected by jutting roof which during the summer served as a roof terrace. Later, the building was rebuilt to the extent that its original characteristics became unrecognisable. The Tavern is now abandoned.
