Faced with a serious shortage of housing and outrageous free-market prices, the Slovenian government has introduced a national housing policy, financed from the Slovenia Housing Fund. The Slovenian housing industry is not yet ready to experiment; commercial forces are still inclined to stick to tried and tested models rooted in the collectivist imagery. That was especially the case in the Polje social housing project on the outskirts of Ljubljana. Dealing with the existing and outdated urban project for six separate villa blocks placed on a rigid grid was no easy task. But Bevk Perovic arhitekti accepted the restrictions as a challenge and changed the space in between the housing blocks, since radical changes to the existing urban plan were not possible. They introduced a small park with a children's playground, making the landscape part of the housing scheme. Private-public interchange continues on open hanging balconies which act as spatial extensions of the interiors.
