This apartment block in Izola, Slovenia is part of the national social housing scheme. Since 30 apartments were for sale the budget was extremely tight. The construction costs of the non-profit block were 600 euros per square metre which translated into 1250 euros per square metre selling price. Rok Oman of Ofis architects conducted a masterly study of the floor plans. A modular scheme was applied within the given contours of the block, resulting in optimum use of space and a maximum net saleable surface area. Collective spaces were reduced to a minimum to keep the square metre price low. After solving the internal layout, Ofis turned to the external appearance. The balconies were transformed into semi-closed loggias wrapped in colourful awnings that act as sun shades. This playful optical game transforms the block into an impressive design object, causing controversy among locals and professionals alike. The balconies give the block a unique identity, almost like a brand.
