Bookshop – café MAKS

Bookshop – café MAKS is located on the ground floor of a one-storey modernist building – one of three communal buildings on Delpinova Street in Nova Gorica, designed in 1957 by the architect Teodor Lojk (1913–2006). The renovation is based on the revalorisation of the original building, revealing the original wall elements made of recycled bricks and the structure of concrete columns. Roughly finished walls are softened by thoughtfully selected interior pieces, the basic compositional element of which are metal shelves that connect the bookshop and the café part of the room. Among the elements that give the room a touch of café glamour, it is worth highlighting the refined peripheral texture of the restaurant bar and discreet lighting.
