Slovak developer Corwin has gained the final building permit for its Ljubljana office project Vilharia. Slovenia's large office complex, which will be built on the brownfield area, is now set to start construction at the beginning of 2023. It will bring 36,000 sqm of prime office space into the centre of the Slovenian capital.

Vilharia will revitalize the currently unused brownfield area along Vilharjeva cesta, located directly next to the Ljubljana bus and train station and city centre. The design from the Danish architectural studio Schmidt Hammer Lassen is based on the Scandinavian tradition of lightness and comfort. The building's modular broad concept will allow larger companies to all work together on one floor and therefore be more connected – with each other and with the city life outside.

The complex will be built according to the latest ESG principles. Heat pumps will utilize regenerative groundwater energy to help bring down the energy demand. Innovative technologies like intelligent air conditioning that uses CO2 sensors to monitor the quality of air will continually protect the health of occupants and provide a pleasant indoor environment. The building will feature noise and heat insulation as well as natural materials.

“Our mission is to become the most sustainable developer that sets new trends and quality standards on the market. In Ljubljana, the public is highly aware of the need for green technologies and sustainable construction. And the companies are asking for sustainable, healthy and ESG-compliant premises," explains Michal Maco, Country Manager, Corwin Slovenia.
