Geometric ornaments in red, white and blue color represent the motives of Slovenian iconography: a stylized landscape of pine forests, wheat fields and vine motif and wife in the Slovenian national costume. The interior is illuminated through the glass ceiling, consists of a small blue glass squares that form a mosaic. The façade is adorned with a series of abstract decorative motifs, which can be interpreted as a stylized carnation flower.
