The founders of Studio.a+v, Anže Koren and Viktorija Žavbi, started to get experience while studying at architectural bureaus and working on independent projects. In 2012, we decided to take our own path by the name Studio.a+v. In 2015, Robert Prašnikar joined. Our work is based on critical approach, we strive for aesthetically sophisticated, innovative and useful architectural solutions and consistent implementation, which is reflected in successfully completed projects at home and abroad.

Hotel Zlatorog keeps and incorporates an old object, the dominant in space, with a new addition - volume that respects and enriches the existing.

Renovation and extension of existing buildings with the aim to give them new meaning, to become more effective, even more beautiful, more sustainable. Keeping beautiful memories, the history and identity of the place is the contribution of hotel Zlatorog to the comunity. We felt the need to consider using an existing one before we add something modern. It seemed irresponsible not to consider maintaining the existing and to explore the possibilities of reusing it. Through consideration we have come to a poetic complexity - interweaving between old-new one that just with new probably wouldn't achieve the same authenticity. Renovations can be quite tedious, but the most interesting ones are buildings that show layers of time and development. Where you can see the thinking and needs of different periods, design ideologies and lifestyles. In terms of sustainability, renovation of existing avoids the use of unnecessary materials, reduces demolition work and the amount of construction waste.


The dominant façade material of the new work is wood - burned or thermally treated spruce, which makes them resistant to the weather. The darker appearances of the new does not want to compete with the old building - complementing it instead and discreetly blends with the greenery of the neighboring hill.

Sketches

New built along with a well preserved and cleaned old building creates an open public space toward the road. The paving continues acros the road and concludes with the wall next to Vila Zlatorog, which becomes a protocol part of the complex intended for exclusive accommodation. The identity of the hotel is also compounded by mass rock boulders left between zhe hotel extension and the outdoor pool. And that creates the gap between the reception (public) and pleasure part of the hotel.
