Newly open on Igriška 5, in the centre of it all, but still in a peaceful street and amidst the centre’s greenery, Edvard is set in the groundfloor of a building protected as a monument of a cultural value.
The building was designed by a famous and influential Slovenian architect Edvard Ravnikar (a pioneer of modern architecture in Slovenia) in the 60’s of the last century and is a part of iconic Ravnikar’s residential quarter Ferant Garden which is considerd to be his masterpiece.
This year, the building underwent a complete renovation that resulted in a modular design with a new bright and innovative character with large glass surfaces enabling an openness into the greenery of the nearby Ferant Garden (Ferrantov vrt). When the glass surfaces are veiled, space is provided with a thorough privacy. Due to its modular design, it can be set into whatever the meeting organiser needs.
The venue offers 200 square meters for organiser’s imagination for pop-up events of all kinds: business meetings, exhibitions, presentations, press conferences, lectures, caterings, … In Edvard, it is even possible to cook, eat, dance, and exercise. It can be used also as a photography or video recording studio, chit-chat corner, living room or as an exhibition site. It can host 90 standing guests or 70 sitting guests that will be inspired by sitting on chairs signed by the best designers.
Edvard also provides technology for the most demanding organisers. It is possible to rent it as fully equipped, bare (no equipment) or partially equipped, depending on the organiser’s wishes and needs. It can be rented for only one hour and up to whatever length of days.
For further plus: the venue has its own entrance what provides for an easy access and total privacy, and it also boasts floor heating and air condition which guarantee a comfortable temperature all-year-round. The space also provides a fully-equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a shower.
Catering can be provided according to the client’s wishes. The Edvard’s team connects the client with catering companies like Jezeršek, Vivo, Super Catering, and similar. Or the client can choose their caterer according to their own preferences. Anything is possible and enabled. In addition, the included, completely equipped kitchen with fridge, stove, oven and dishwasher, offers a space for preparing a coffee for the participants at the event or setting a snack.
Since Edvard is located in the midst of it all, the incentive programmes can be arranged either in Cankarjev dom – Cultural and Congress Centre that presents Ljubljana’s hub of culture and arts, or in the nearby National Museum, Museum of Natural History, Modern Gallery, National Gallery, Opera House, or in any of other buildings in the city centre like Musem of Illusions, etc.
