About Architecture in Slovenia - Municipal Savings Bank, Ljubljana

The Ljubljana Municipal Savings Bank was built in 1904 to a design by the Sarajevo architect Josip Vancaš. Designs for the new bank were invited by the management via a public competition announced in 1902 in trade papers in Vienna, Prague and Zagreb. Three designs reached the shortlist and Vancaš's design was awarded the second prize by the competition jury, which later entrusted him with its realisation. Owing to the limited funding available, only the first floor of the building was to be used for the savings bank, something that was already made clear at the competition stage. The ground floor would be occupied by shops, while the top two storeys would be taken up by flats.
