The Kozolec building has nine levels, along the street front there are shops; followed by two office levels and residential levels. The apartment is located on the first residential level (the third floor of the building) and can be accessed by elevator or stairs.

The family bathroom is a good sized and has a bathtub with shower, a toilet and sink and a washing machine. The Master bedroom is separated from the living room by the hallway and additionally benefits from the en-suite, thus it offers plenty of peace and privacy. The room is very light and has access to the glazed - in balcony.

About Katarina

My family lives in Ljubljana and although we are residents of the capital we like to explore all the hidden and even less hidden treasures of our city. Voranc is four and his greatest joy in Ljubljana (especially in the summer) are ice creams in all shapes and sizes followed by the Puppet Theater. I love history so a visit to the castle which is towering over our beautiful Ljubljana is a must....often, not just once a year...and while I am trying to imagine how people lived in this city many years ago, my husband is observing the surrounding buildings and trying to notice every little detail as he should being an architect.

Why Katarina chose Slovenia

The real charm of this apartment is its connection with architecture. It is a part of the heritage building Kozolec, one of the most important examples of modern Slovene architecture, designed by the architect Edo Mihevc. It was built in the 1950's and named Kozolec (Hayrack) because of its skeletal frame and distinctive horizontal lines typical of a unique Slovene wooden hayrack that has been developed in the 16th century. Our building was designed in the same period as the famous Unité d'habitation in Marseilles by Le Corbusier. My husband, architect Aleš Šeligo, who is also the author of the elevation renovation of the building Kozolec in 2009, believes that both Le Corbusier and Mihevc found their inspiration in the post revolutionary architecture in the Soviet Union; the famous Moscow’s residential building Narkomfin designed by the architects Moisei Ginzburg and Ignatii Milinis that has been developed in 1928 and Tsentrosayuz by Ivan Leonidov; the latter was academically redeveloped by Le Corbusier.

There are nine levels in the Kozolec building; shops on the first level are followed by two levels of offices and six residential levels. The roof is really a terrace with offers a unique view over Ljubljana.

It is still not known why the building Kozolec was originally built. Some believe that its representative apartments were planned to house high political and trade representatives, while others think that it was designed to house the Western Army Headquarters during zone A and B period (Paris Peace Treaty, 1947). The two office levels would have been for command’s operational rooms and the apartments would have been for high military representatives. The apartment itself reveals another architectural story. As mentioned, elements of interior inside the apartment are from different projects of the architect Aleš Šeligo and on the walls you can see some architectural projects related to water from the author’s opus “Architecture and Water”.

What makes this apartment unique

Before the renovation that turned the apartment Kozolec into vacation apartment you see today, this apartment was one of the workshops of architect Aleš Šeligo. Around the renovated apartment you’ll find elements from the different projects that Šeligo worked on, such as his opus titled “Architecture and Water”. Architect Aleš Šeligo believes that among the arts and all its forms, architecture is possibly the most responsible to humanity. Therefore he enabled the use of this apartment and is allocating part of the profit generated by this vacation rental to development of young architects who understand that the architecture is responsible for the evolutionary development of our existence. It is possible to avoid other art forms, but it is impossible to avoid architecture. Architecture follows, guides and touches people every step of the way - either unknowingly or with its full power; without needing to go to the theater or read a book or visit a gallery. Architecture is and always will be the accompanying art of the governing class, who in turn also depend on it, sometimes as a blind servant. This is clearly evident in architectural creations that have been used as a means of political manifestation and at times they are the peak of indoctrination of certain ideologies or repressions.
