Homestead Pr’ Lenart
Platform Kajža and homestead Pr’ Lenart, in collaboration with CzK, are announcing an open call for participation in the design challenge 1498/2022.
Halfway between urban and rural. A 16th-century farmhouse near Ljubljana, located in the village of Belo, which was first mentioned in archival sources in 1498. The double hayrack, with its changed use, thus becomes a venue for socializing, networking, workshops and cultural events or occasional emergency accommodation. What does double hayrack need? How can we upgrade an empty space layered with history into a flexible environment that will not only be suitable for today but also for the future? What are the needs of cultural heritage structures today?
The theme of the challenge is the conceptual design of a multifunctional piece of furniture made of natural materials that will be based on the traditional and vernacular design principles of the Polhograj hills. The piece of furniture will become part of the ambiance of the renovated and heated hayloft that serves as a place for socializing and creativity. At the same time, the workshop will consider revitalizing the space and other potential cultural heritage buildings for today.
Anyone can participate, and we particularly welcome students of design and architecture, young architects, designers and anyone interested in connecting heritage with the present day to apply. We will accept up to 20 participants.
