The Kazina Palace

One of the most political abused buildings in Slovene history, The Kazina Palace, is keeping on its architectural prophecy. Since it was built, Kazina has got all kinds of political masters, from Germans, Austrians to Liberal Yugoslavian democratic Party, later on by Italian Army in 1943 and finally the Slovene parliament in 1054. The neoclassical architecture was initiated by Kazina department committee members and created by architect master Benedict Müller in 1836 to 1838 for clubbing purpose of Ljubljana’s elite bourgeois. Kazina has been a place of revealed bourgeois dignity and politician’s manifest. The venerable lady has never lost its liveliness, hosting various social and cultural activities and sophisticated clubbing. Since now the old lady will host young students at Music Academy, instituted by University of Ljubljana. The building was seismically reinforced, acoustically stabilized and adjusted and completely renewed under conservation strategies. The project of reconstruction was designed by Styria team and ZVKD RS, represented by team members, David Mišič, Boštjan Švent, Davor Fistrič and Marija Režek Kambič.
