Valeta with its steep slopes at the intersection of principal road to Sečovlje and road to Piran offers an exceptional programme and ambient potential. Easy accessibility and superb views of Piran Bay enhance the site's quality and provide the basis of programme scheme. On one hand, Portorož has long been faced with parking space deficiency, on other; there aren't many spaces for development of housing capacities left. Proposed project addresses both problems. At the back of the structure, parking capacities are arranged in the slope, the front with views is an obvious choice for quality housing programme. A large plaza with public programmes is arranged at the entrance on the bottom level. Building's capacity comprises 506 parking spaces and 63 apartment units with 80 m2 of closed areas and 16 m2 of loggias.
Apartment line is envisaged as a series of wedged units, with interchanging levels they form a matrix of open and closed spaces; lush greenery merges the building into the landscape. Inspired by two historic dwelling types, cave dwellings and hanging gardens, the concept offers a high level of intimacy while still retaining excellent views of the bay.
