Ivex is a former industrial complex of offices, warehouse and wine bottling plant, by architect Lavoslav Horvat. In the part of the ground floor, an exhibition space and an experimental dormitory are designed for the the research studio DELTALab at the University of Rijeka.
The design was approached by removing all non bearing elements. The memory of the space was kept in its rough presentation. The historic ribbed construction of the ceiling was revealed to the observer. The new toilet cube is inserted in the color of the black like the existing plinth of the terrazzo floor.
The dormitory unit is a mobile capsule composed of three elements, a bed, a table and a wardrobe. Elements could be separated and then again assembled together. Elements are wrapped in astro foil.
Through the placement of capsules the user directs the urbanism of the interior.
Transformation possibilities allow each future program and user to reshape the space over and over again.
