Basis
Bled School of Management wants to expand its program to the new plot. The new program encompasses a multi-purpose room-studio and a bookstore with a café. Parking for cars is located in the basement.

Design concept
The basic idea of the new intervention is an area to be considered as a miniature Bled (minimundus). The new area is formed as a landscape.
A plaza is placed in the new area. Bled obtains a new beach area for socializing, culture, art, space and room for inspiration.
The design of the plaza is an empty canvas which outlines the new program (after the painting of the painter Gabriel Stupica). The image that is generated, over time varies depending on the program, which takes place on the plaza.

Physical level
Plaza (as an island on the lake)

Sensual level
Canvas

Mental Level
