The Baumit Life Challenge is a competition, where the best Baumit facades of Europe are awarded. The Cukrarna gallery, a former sugar refinery, won the main prize.
Cukrarna, a former sugar refinery, was built in 1828. The key idea was to carve out all internal structures of the building, preserving only the historic envelope, and convert it into a multi-functional space for contemporary art. Today represents a revolutionary new space in the cultural infrastructure of Ljubljana.
