MODERN CULTURAL CENTRE
CC Tobačna 001 is a cultural centre that includes an art gallery, a museum collection and an apartment intended for artists in residence. It is the first historical building within Ljubljana’s old Tobacco Factory premises to be renewed. It was opened on 19 March 2011. It is the city’s new focal point for visual and cultural activities situated in a quarter that is increasingly becoming a prime ambient for contemporary multicultural attributes.
Constructed in 1885, the building was used as an auxiliary facility of Ljubljana’s tobacco factory. It primarily housed a washroom for workers, equipped with showers and bathtubs. During the 1970s, the building was converted into a factory canteen and in the early 1990s into the factory’s archives. Following its renovation, the tobacco factory Tobačna Ljubljana and the construction company IMOS-G – the investor and the constructor of the future residential, business-administrative and cultural quarter – placed the building at the disposal of the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana.
