Architecture with a Specific Mission

The first impression that the INCE Mengeš Care and Work Centre makes on the visitor is quite unexpected. Instead of being faced with a rigid institutional facility that forebodes similar content, at the very entrance one perceives that the story here is different. With further discovery of this almost Zen space, the well-thought-out conceptual layers reveal themselves one after another, rounding out the facility in a sensible way.
