dc.description Short end of the building; This apartment block is social [subsidized] housing and was sold to Slovenian Housing fund. The cost per square meter had to be 650 EUR/m2 since the selling cost was 1300EUR/m2. The given footprint of the building was 4 floors high, 58 meters long. The combination of balconies and winter gardens function as constant temperature buffer zone to the main living and sleeping areas. The balconies are shifted opposite from the busy road, which at the same time provides shelter from direct sunlight. Additional aluminum shading panels are placed on the outer sides of the winter loggias and balconies. Source: Ofis Arhitekti [firm's website]; (accessed 7/18/2010) en_US
