The renovation of the Jože Pučnik Airport terminal, built in 1965. The building which was initially planned and build by the architect Ciril Oblak, requires renovation.
The tectonics of the building in cross-section resembles a cross-sectional view of the clouds. Our purpose within the intervention is to further emphasize the architectural element of the roof. The reinterpretation of clouds is created with a new facade element of expanded sheet metal. Transparency of this material grants the visibility of existing architecture. Facade elements that extend across the roof smudge and soften the edges of the building and blend its outline with the sky.
