DUBoak [dubōk] – Maritime Heritage Interpretation Center

DUBoak – Maritime Heritage Interpretation Center in Malinska on the island of Krk is part of a larger project for the development of the Malinska coastal belt – a result of a public architectural competition that became a strategic document for the future development of this island town. After the realization of the project for the main square and the reconstruction of the „Velika Barka“ waterfront, the Interpretation Center is the newest part of the project that is transforming public spaces of Malinska, which were neglected for many years despite the strong tourism growth. The building of the Interpretation Center is located in the continuation of the park and forms its facade towards the main local square. The park arches over the building forming a roof that covers interior spaces but at the same time, it remains a public area of the park with a lookout point and a Mediterranean garden. In this way, the building returns the “lost” space to the park, enriched with new contents with the potential to become a public space activator of the entire zone. The massive green roof is supported by wooden V-shaped columns through which the interesting layout of the Interpretation Center can be seen. The aim was to provide a contemporary presentation space for the traditional heritage and history of Malinska, but also a transformation of the town center.
