Military Bakery, reconstruction of great cultural heritage

In the middle of Tvrdja in Osijek there's a special building, great cultural heritage. 200 years ago it was a military bakery. The preserved graffiti on the walls and great ovens are telling us the story. Today it is reconstructed to a multifunctional space. Every level has it's own functionality, but they all are very complementary.

Exterior is like it was before, we have only added new glass staircase.

On the ground level there's a lobby, cafe, restaurant, co-working space and meeting areas. On the first level there's a hostel with 15 rooms. On the second level there are offices and workshops. On the roof level there's a great conference hall.

It was a great challenge to adapt old building for modern use, while preserving much of the character of the past.
