The governmental office space is part of the existing building, designed by the famous Slovenian architect Vladimir Šubic. Built in 1929/30, the building was originally the palace of trade, but is now used by the Slovenian government and Imad. Imad wanted to turn the second floor (previously a library), into a conference space for sixty and work space for seven employees. Whole second floor was designed as gallery space of the big conference hall on the first floor, so that the natural light can also come in from the north. Gallery windows are walled-up. Big task of the renovation was to replace all the missing light, invent a movable conference table for 20 people, change the terrace into a garden, and invent relaxing space for the employees. The project's challenge was to reinvent the famous Slovenian
conference chair 'Boston' from '70 and use it.
