The site plot is in the industrial area of Skofja Loka, Slovenia. The client bought the site in an industrial zone along with the constructional permit plans. The building dimensions are 35 x 22.5m and 11,50m in height. Furthermore the contract included the executive Construction Company for the entire industrial zone and their prefabricated concrete system which included ready made openings for each elevation.
The project task was to fit the brief inside the given shell and refine the existing elevations. The existing sections had to remain the same. The client’s company produce and merchandise safety equipment and devices which had to be stored within the 2/3 of the building’s volume. The program was defined and inserted into 4 divisions following functional demands: Offices – storage loading – central storage – storage with attached loading.
The project scheme incorporated storage for goods of different sizes with loading areas, store, offices and classroom for lectures regarding safety standards.
The elevation breaks through the functional façade grid to reinstate flowing concrete elements in between translucent screens; Offices with transparent double-glazed façade, storage spaces with semi-translucent polycarbonate elements and two openings on the back as loading dock doors.
