OK in my defence, I didn’t have a blog in 2007 when this building was completed. Having that said =) here’s a little something about the apartment building designed by the Slovenian studio OFIS Arhitekti now, better later than never. It’s a social housing project in the center of Ljubljana located by a busy city road which represented a problem to be solved as far as noise was concerned. The way they came about this problem was by designing the facade as fish gills, automatically turning and protecting the apartment openings from the road towards the South. The apartment sizes vary from 30m2 studio flats to 103m2 3-bedroom apartments; all of the units are equipped wity quality materials such as granite tiles in the bathrooms, oak hardwood flooring and external metal blinds. The outer structural walls are protected by plaster and the loggias are wrapped in precast panels of different colours. The square footage of the whole complex is 5000m2 and the price per square meter was 1300€.
