Wellisch House

Marker ikona

Drago Ibler also designed another residential and building in the ‘Martićeva Zone’, the Wellisch House.

Drago Ibler (1894 — 1964) is one of the most significant Croatian architects of the 20th century and one of the most important representatives of modernist architecture in Croatia. The highlight of his career comprises the interbellum period, when he was professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, and very active in public tenders and various projects. In the ‘Martićeva Zone’, alongside the ‘wooden skyscraper’, perhaps his most celebrated achievement, Ibler also designed the residential and business building, the Wellisch House, which comprises two structures, a six-storey building in Martićeva Street 13 and a five-storey building in Vlaška 60. The City of Zagreb Institute for the Protection of Cultural and Natural Heritage Monuments describes the Wellisch House as a “seminal work of modern Croatian interbellum architecture that represents a programmatic achievement of avant-garde liberated residence, conceived as a unit of measure for standardised urban construction”. The building was built in 1930-1931, immediately becoming a recognizable spot of both the local area and the vista of the entire Zagreb lower town.



Program bar

The bar Program is located on the site of a former charming Divas bistro. Saša Žerajić, the ever-present and loved face of the bistro, who worked there since the opening, decided to create his own concept in the same place. 


PULS*AR was established in December 2013, as a new initiative by principal architects with a collective wealth of experience built through their individual careers, each stretching back almost twenty years. Together, they encompass a wide range of varied concepts, designs, and built developments, winning them international recognition and a host of prestigious awards.

Kreativni centar Ledana

Unutrašnjost bloka u Bauerovoj 19 jedan je od primjera dugogodišnjeg nastojanja za očuvanjem bivšeg industrijskog kompleksa tvornice leda kao prostora od javnog značaja, a protiv pokušaja njegove privatizacije.
