Tetris apartments in Ljubljana, Slovenia by OFIS arhitekti

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

The location of the site is on the edge of the planned 650 apartments which were finished a year earlier. However, these apartments differ from the previous as they were planned as social housing and were sold to the Slovenian Housing Fund. The given urban plot of the building was 4 floors high, 58 meters long and 15 in width. Since the orientation of the building is towards the busy highway the apartment openings, together with balconies were shifted to become 30 degrees window-wings towards the quieter and southern orientated side.

Ben van Berkel / UNStudio’s Galleria Centercity in Cheonan, South Korea

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

We just received some new images for this project. So, here is the updated project.

If museums are turning into supermarkets, why then should department stores not turn into museums?

“The Galleria Cheonan responds to the current retail climate in Asia, where department stores also operate as social and semi-cultural meeting places. Because of this, the quality of the public spaces within the building was treated as an integral aspect of the design.”, Ben van Berkel
