Architect Jože Plečnik in Kranj

mestno jedro Kranja
BEŽEK VILA, Koroška cesta 27
The plans for the building were drawn in Plečnik’s seminar by the client’s brother, architect Niko Bežek in 1936. The pro-ject complied with the needs of an unmarried physician (surgery with a waiting room on the ground floor, an apartment on the first floor). When designing the building with a single-pitch roof, Plečnik used the motif of a prominent entrance portal (separating the front of the building with pilasters).

FOUNTAIN (1952 - 1959), Vodopivčeva ulica
The architect Jože Plečnik had planned to make a monumental entrance into the town. He transformed the steep slope into a staircase and replaced the former well (called “šterna”) with an obelisk, at the top of which there is a bronze rooster from which the water runs into stone, terraced vessels. The fountain is an interpretation of the Garden of Eden at Hradčany, Prague.

The theatre used to be a national hall but was rebuilt in 1952 according to the architect’s plans. The most visible change was made on the entrance, to which a monumental arcaded hallway and characteristic lamps were added.
