Boutique Hostel Forum + Café Forum in Zadar, Croatia by STUDIO UP + DGD (Damir Gamulin Design)

The Zadar Peninsula. Roman Forum. Between the St. Anastasia’s Cathedral and the Archeological Museum. The place of intervention is Bruno Milić’s office and housing complex from 1964, which has been converted into 37 rooms with 111 beds. The existing spatial limits were transformed, using new drywall geometries, color rasters, rhythms of ceramic tiles, glossy varnish, acrylic reflective boards and tinted mirrors, to create a new relation towards the antique, modernistic heritage and nature.

The program is gradually transitioned from the private to the public – with the continuous hallway of the chat room, the installed court-yard pavilion which becomes a meeting-place where guests and tenants can exchange their global/local experience and in the space of the Café, located on the intersection of the Cardo and the Decumanus, between the diabolic reflections where every character finds its own space, its own chair and its own reflection.
