Sabini-Grisoni palace / Vergerijev trg office building

The Sabini-Grisoni Palace was formed through the rebuilding of several older buildings dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. The renovation of the rooms was planned to take into account all contemporary spatial and structural requirements, while also preserving in situ the authenticity of the historical elements and some of the newly discovered wall paintings. Today, the edifice is utilized to fulfil the mission of the Grisoni couple, as it houses a diverse array of social welfare initiatives in lieu of the former orphanage. The palace was declared a cultural monument during the reconstruction.
