location: Murska Sobota, Slovenia
area: 4.000 m2
client: Sobota Center d.o.o.
type: office building
year of construction: 1998
the winning proposal for the Murska Sobota Centre masterplan,
the project was developed as two separate systems. The invisible
structures below ensure the existing programs on site, a major
city bank and the central post office to function undisturbed.
Parking spaces for both companies are provided, as well as secure
manipulation with values and mail. Above ground, the structure
- together with the rebuilt marketplace
- establishes a new axis of retail and office programmes in
the city centre. The derelict backyards of the bank and the
post office were transformed into an articulate city plaza.
