Kulturni dom Grosuplje

The Grosuplje Cultural Centre is an iconic building that elegantly complements the town’s architectural image. Its design is clear and attractive, in order to be the cultural home for everyone, locals and guests. The form and the materialization of the building give it a strong visual character, establishing the new architectural identity of Grosuplje, which is recognizable on the local and  on the international scale. We analysed the history of the town and thus developed our architectural strategy: what the new cultural center means for the town, what potentials it opens up, and what will be happening in and around it. The festive brick façade creates a specific contemporary architecture with regional expression: it reflects the particular character typical of the town’s existing public buildings, such as the library and the health center. The square and the lobby of the Cultural Centre form the living room of the town. The direct visual connection to the open and illuminated space of the foyer makes the interior of the Cultural Centre a part of the city ground floor. The large and the small halls are arranged in the ground floor around the foyer. The tower that rises above the square houses the music school.
