Text description provided by the architects. The building is located in the business center of Ljubljana. It creates a gate together with the existing tower from the 1960s in the northern entrance to the city. The volume was pre-determined by strict urban rules and competition from 2007. The maximum height limit is at 82m.

The concept defines the massing as the clear assembling of platforms in order to dissolve the given massing into the urban landscape. The result is a Platform Tower- growing horizontal changing slabs following the fixed urban volume.
The opaque aluminum horizontal elements contrast with the transparent glass panels, diminishing the presence of the building in the urban context.

The aim is to incorporate the building to the existing urban context creating a cityscape. It is more an aggregation to the existing towers than an element that stands out as a contrast. Glazed areas are “shaded” with pixelated Slovene motif patterns in the form of an abstract curtain.
