Historically significant buildings
The most important palace of the Croatian Secession was declared an "achievement of the 20th century" in Croatia. It was built according to the designs of the architect Rudolf Lubynski, one of the most productive architects in Zagreb. Its construction began in 1911, and it was handed over for use in 1913. It is a successful combination of early Viennese Art Nouveau and modern European, mainly German, architecture of the 20th century. It is 80 m long, 46 m wide, made of reinforced concrete and iron construction. The interior of the building is richly furnished and decorated.
The works included the renovation of the floors in the attic, the central part of the basement and the ground floor of the eastern courtyard with cement glazes with the addition of acrylic dispersions and final substrates made of special renovation materials. Reinforced concrete walls were made and high-class fire protection was installed.
