and public


In addition to the work on the restoration of many tourist buildings that are also monumental heritage, ING-GRAD also carries out projects for the construction of new tourist buildings, as well as public purpose buildings. In the projects, we can boast of a series of modern, technologically advanced accommodation facilities for tourist purposes, museums and other public buildings.

Public buildings

In the projects of tourist and public buildings, we highlight the following works:

Arrangement and furnishing of museum spaces

In addition to interior and exterior decoration, the museum spaces themselves require furnishing with furniture and equipment, special lighting, visual and sound effects depending on the content and type of museum, and a setting that should be presented to visitors as faithfully as possible.

Did you know?

For the needs of multimedia events on the facade of the Archaeological Museum of Istria in Pula, a facade communication video system was created in the latest variant of LED display technology with a total area of ​​327.03 m2. In the inactive state, the system is almost transparent, that is, it does not interfere with the passage of daylight into the interior space of the museum. The system can be used as a whole or in segments, and the angle of light emission is 160 degrees horizontally and vertically, which ensures a uniform perception regardless of the dimensions of the display and the perspective of the observer. This makes it unique in Croatia by all its properties.

Cascade construction

Cascading construction is a unique way of connecting spaces at different heights and floors, which achieves a simple and functional flow for users and visitors and enables an unhindered experience of space and content.

Did you know?

The museum building in the Vučedol Archaeological Park is a building built on four floors that are connected by gently sloping ramps in a cascading manner, and with its green roof, it fits perfectly into the surroundings of the Slavonia landscape.

Zerostrasse, Pula

Grad Pula

Public buildings

The underground tunnels system under the fortress and hills Kaštel consists of a lower complex of underground tunnels at the city level, the so-called Zerostrasse, and 11 m above them an upper complex of underground tunnels – the mezzanine. The fortress Kaštel is located 11 m above the mezzanine tunnels.

Pula underground tunnels were created during the Austro-Hungarian rule, just before the First World War for the needs of sheltering people in case of direct aerial attacks on the city. The Venetian fortress on top of the central city hill Kaštel (Hasfenkastell) served as warehouse, barracks and watchtower under Austrian rule. After the First World War, Italian authorities continued using Pula underground tunnels, widened and expanded them. After the Second World War, they were used as shelter for civilians and for the needs of medical corps. The basic idea of revitalizing the underground tunnels system is connecting the tunnels with the fortress Kaštel in one unit and facilitating access to the fortress from the level of city streets at the foot of Kaštel hill with an elevator. The primary request of the employer, which was for the last station of the elevator to be inside the Historical and Maritime Museum of Istria, was taken into account in the selection of elevator location.

The elevator connects all three levels, with three stations. The first station is in tunnels ZeroStrasse and it is located in the immediate vicinity of the central square that spreads in 4 channel arms. The reconstruction of the existing space with the access hall Zerostrasse was executed, as well as the access hall of the mezzanine (the second station). The third elevator station is inside the fortress courtyard and is the only visible element of the elevator structure. With the aim of fitting the new element as best as possible in the historic unit of the fortress Kaštel it was only appropriate to select glass from the esthetic, safety and functional standpoint.

The Zerostrasse tunnel walls were carved in bedrock, and it was necessary to preserve them as much as possible. Natural concrete and smooth lining were used in reconstruction. The hydrant network installations and point water drainage were realized within floor surfaces. In the central part of the tunnel, works were realized on concrete benches, and new concrete floors were executed, as well as rehabilitation of benches in all other tunnels. With the approval of the conservationist, the old metal entrance doors were removed on all entrances, and new doors were realized with lattice leaves for air passage.
