Croatian Medical Home

Architecture
 

The representative modernist building of the Croatian Medical Home, seat of the Croatian Medical Association, a public association of Croatian physicians, medical professionals and dentists, opened in 1937.

Since then it has been the central point of gathering for all local medical experts. The four-storey commercial-residential building with a one-storey backyard wing was built in 1935/36 according to the project by the architects F. Cota and Z. Požgaj. The building is recognizable by its rationalist spatial solution and balanced composition of the main facade, while the interior decoration and equipment are marked by prominent stylistic art-deco details, characteristic of the early phase of Croatian architectural modernism.

The Croatian Medical Home was thoroughly renovated in 1999, and it is frequently included among the most significant accomplishments of the Croatian functionalist architecture of international style.

Atelier Ostrman

One of the more interesting locations in Lopašićeva Street is the art studio of the painter Tomislav Ostrman, Atelier Ostrman, where he exhibits and sells his own pieces and those of his colleagues and friends, alongside organizing small social events in this attractive workshop.

Garderoba Concept Store

With the opening of Ana Ivančić’s Garderoba, Zagreb got its first conceptual showroom for Scandinavian fashion. Garderoba is a carefully thought-out project, a room whose elements have all been designed by brilliant Croatian designers and architects, thus also adding a Croatian brand to the offer.

Slatka priča

The Slatka Priča pastry shop was started in 2013, and is currently in three places – Kranjčevićeva Street, Ivana Brlić Mažuranić Street in Zagreb’s Malešnica neighborhood, and, of course, Martićeva Street (since 2016), more precisely at the busy corner of Martićeva and Smičiklasova.

Mikrofon

Mikrofon is a music school started in 2009, located in the charming inner courtyard of 19 Martićeva Street. Its predecessor was the Vocal Studio Maraton vocal workshop from Rijeka, and the school has since then grown from offering single singing lessons to group singing and lessons for children, as well as instrumental music lessons.

Medveščak Library

The Medveščak Library, our neighborhood’s branch of Zagreb City Libraries, encompasses three departments – adult, children’s and youth (also known as “Idi pa Vidi”, or “Come and See”). Besides normal library duties, the library also engages in setting up various exhibitions in its windows, and workshops in the rooms of the youth and children’s departments.
