Badel Digital Hub
We were inspired by the industrial heritage of the site in two ways;
Functionality and Aesthetic
The factories and the type of processes that once took place within them have inspired us in giving a language and a content to this ideas competition.
We see the liqueur factory as a generator.
The idea is that the productivity that one was embedded in the now empty industrial buildings will spread creativity throughout the site in the form of cylindrical economic incubators.
The forms are also inspired by the types of processes and machinery used back in the day.
Above all the distillation process, we see Badel Digital Hub as a new initiative for distilling ideas and cultivating Creativity.
What do these cylinders contain?
Beautiful Young Croatian Minds.
The new space provided is includes spaces for the exposition of new ideas, office space for young entrepreneurs, classrooms for workshops and classes and hotel rooms for people from outside Zagreb to come learn and share ideas!
The entrance to the general common space is around the perimeter buildings. As the Gorica factory is mostly inaccessible from its street façade we decided that we could us this to bring people around and off the street so they interact with the complex before entering.
From each approach the visual connections with the former Arco Liqueur Factory are retained.
