The Gradaska apartment building is located in a rather odd zone, poised between Ljubljana's city centre and the protected rural enclave of Krakovo. Like a giant ice cube reflecting its surroundings, the fragmented nature of the area is reflected in its internal organization, too.
The twelve apartments are far from the standard single-storey affair. Spatial differentiation was achieved by stretching the living room to double or one-and-a-half height. These vertical spaces are embraced by either an extremely open loft-type layout or a more conventional layout with separate bedrooms. Within the closed shell of the building, the apartments interlock like pieces in a three-dimensional version of a Tetris game. On the unusually flat fašade - deliberately free of balconies - the primary role is reserved for glass. The vast glazed surface is a combination of reflective and transparent glass which imparts elegance and hardness, but also provides the fašade with an almost tactile quality.
