Spica development

07/2011 I student project I mentor prof. Peter Gabrijelčič

Špica in Ljubljana is a long lasting problem area in the city. Central location in the city of the site, surrounding river and peaceful environment are the main qualities but are unused. Using this attributes and expanding them to create an enjoyable public space was the main goal of this project.
The new landscape without any major distractions creates a dynamic and usable space, white stone paving adds the monumental feeling of the site. Added program box consists of a cafe and a small theater space, making the site as one open cultural space. Connected with the water, making the sloping areas a sitting and relaxing area with the added program of water stage, ensuring the various usages of the site.
