Music school Šoštanj

The Music School is housed in a renovated and annexed existing building next to the Cultural Center. The wedge-shaped floor plan is determined by the location between the Paka River and the elongated street. The characteristic architecture of the walls of a cultural home, in the new extension, continues as a torn white peripheral wall of the building, which, in contact with the cultural home and in the caesuras, reveals the darker center of the building, where the internal pulse of the school is displayed. On the river side, the perimeter is dematerialized into a network of upright lamellae, which cover the glass wall of the inner two-storey hall and communicate with the avenue along the river.
